Willem de Rooij

Fine Arts

Willem de Rooij (*1969 in Beverwijk/NL) lives and works in Berlin and has since 2006 been Professor of Fine Arts at the Städelschule. He studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. Willem de Rooij’s work is determined by the selection and combination of images in diverse media, such as sculpture, film, photography and text, analyzing thereby conventions of presentation and representation. The sculptural quality of his earlier film installations developed into treating the entire exhibition space as a form, turning the language of display into works of art in their own right and thereby often incorporating found materials or appropriated works of art. He collaborated with fellow artist Jeroen de Rijke until 2006 and has since then had exhibitions at K 21, Düsseldorf (2007) and at the Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna (2008). Robert Fulton Fellowship at Harvard University in 2004 and representation of the Netherlands at the Venice Biennale in 2005. Among other institutions, his works can be found in the collections of the Nationalgalerie in Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin, at the MUMOK in Vienna, and the MoMA in New York.
