Léon Kruijswijk

Léon Kruijswijk is curator at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, and works as a freelance curator and writer. With his curatorial practice, Kruijswijk addresses themes on the intersection of queer and gender theory, activism and institutional critique, and navigates the crossovers between visual art, literature, film, experimental music, dance and performance. At KW, he has (co-)curated exhibitions and performances with artists including Alexis Blake, BLESS, Billy Bultheel & James Richards, Coco Fusco, Michele Rizzo, Luiz Roque and Oraib Toukan. In the Netherlands, he has organized exhibitions and events as a freelancer, including at Framer Framed, NEVERNEVERLAND and De School Amsterdam. His writing has also been published in TextWork (forthcoming February 2024), on Mister Motley and in Metropolis M. He has contributed to the anthology Queer Exhibition Histories and to various artist’s publications, including those by Edith Dekyndt and Jaanus Samma. Kruijswijk obtained his MA degrees in Museum Studies and in Contemporary Art History at the University of Amsterdam.
