Femke Snelting develops projects at the intersection of design, feminism and Free Software. She is member of Constant, a non-profit, artist-run organisation based in Brussels. She co-initiated the design/research team Open Source Publishing (OSP) and the Libre Graphics Research Unit to investigate the way digital tools and creative practice might co-construct each other. With delegates Jara Rocha, Seda Guerses and Miriyam Aouragh she takes part in the Darmstadt Delegation, assigned to explore techno-political and socio-emotional relationships between activist and technological practice. Femke is involved in Mondotheque, a collaborative project that grew out of a shared concern with the mesh of institutional histories, local politics and corporate interests that coagulate around the heritage of Paul Otlet. She was an Art, Science and Business fellow at Akademie Schloss Solitude and currently teaches at The Piet Zwart Institute (experimental publishing, Rotterdam) and a.pass (advanced performance and scenography studies, Brussels).
Visiting Professor at IZK in the winter semester 2016/17. She will be teaching the Workshop 1 together with Marcell Mars and Tomislav Medak.
