    About the artist

    Lives and works in Amsterdam
    1963: Born in New York

    Emily Kocken is a visual artist and writer who works and lives in Amsterdam. Born in 1963 in New York, she moved with a part of her family to the Netherlands at the age of seven. She received a rich training in the academic field, studying music, philosophy, theatre, film and writing. In her interdisciplinary research she displaces fragments from the lives of others with her own, defining the personal sublime in public micro histories.

    Emily Kocken has participated in many exhibitions and received a number of grants for her research from acknowledged art foundations. Her first novel ‘Witte vlag‘ will be published by Querido Publishers in 2013.
