WILLEM DE ROOJ (born 1969 in Beverwijk, NL) investigates the production, contextualization and interpretation of images through a variety of media. Appropriations and collaborations are fundamental to De Rooij‘s artistic method and his projects have stimulated new research in art history and ethnography. With Jeroen de Rijke (1970-2006) he represented the Netherlands at the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005. De Rooij is Professor of Fine Art at the Städelschule Frankfurt/Main since 2006, and visiting advisor at the Rijksakademie Amsterdam since 2015. In 2016, he co-founded BPA // Berlin program for artists. Recent solo exhibitions include Bouquet II at LAXart, Los Angeles (2019), Whiteout at Kunstwerke Berlin (2017), Ebb Rains at IMA Brisbane (2017), Entitled at MMK Museum of Modern Art, Frankfurt/Main (2016).
