Director Arnoud van Aalst and the entire Museum Rijswijk team are very pleased to welcome Julia Geerlings to the team! Julia Geerlings is the new Curator of Contemporary Art at Museum Rijswijk. Geerlings studied Art History at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and at the Freie Universität in Berlin. She contributes regularly to publications and magazines like Metropolis M. She has been the curator and director of A Tale of A Tub since 2019, a former bathhouse at the heart of the monumental Justus van Effen complex in Rotterdam. The program was centred around questions of how art can contribute to our understanding of present-day social, political, and ecological issues and framed through intersectional ecological thinking and care-based practices. Prior to this she organized exhibitions and performances at Vleeshal (Middelburg, NL), Oude Kerk (Amsterdam, NL) and Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen (Vijfhuizen, NL) amongst others and she was an advisor for Amsterdam Fund for the Arts, CBK Rotterdam and a tutor for Hogeschool voor de kunsten Utrecht.
