Annemarie de Wildt - Historian and Curator at the Amsterdam Museum. She has curated many exhibitions on topics that focus on daily life, urban conflicts and culture, migration and identity. Her exhibition projects include prostitution, Amsterdam songs, sailors’ tattoos, football as a religion, animals in the city, neighbourhood shops, graffiti and the love-hate relationship between Amsterdam and the House of Orange. Her exhibitions are characterised by a hybrid variety of objects, often a mix of ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture and with a strong role for human stories. She prefers to co-create exhibitions in dialogue with the people that are (re)presented and therefore knows Amsterdam like her pocket.
Annemarie has given many lectures and workshops in the Netherlands and abroad. Her international projects include the touring Football Hallelujah exhibition, The Hoerengracht (together with the National Gallery in London) and a twinning project with Fort Nieuw Amsterdam in Surinam. Annemarie de Wildt is a keen blogger and has published various books/catalogues and many articles and blogs on the practice and dilemma’s of curating and (contemporary) collecting.
