Sasha DeesCurator

New York / Amsterdam
“I want to provide a platform for emerging artists who push limits, cross borders and break down barriers. Art for me is about communication, confronting people without imposing, and creating a dialogue that offers a different perspective.

I am interested in the collaboration between different cultures, traditions, genders and the various art disciplines. All art disciplines are equally important to me –theater, visual art, dance, music, spoken word and film. I work with artists who experiment with the classical art forms, who mix them up and break them down– not to destroy, but to analyze and re-use and build something new.”
