Neele Marie Denker
Spatial Practice & Curation

Neele Marie Denker is a spatial designer and curator, focusing on collective projects in physical and digital space. Her curatorial and spatial practice is always born from intense collaboration. The artistic direction of the graduation show 2020 of the Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design, was her curatorial grounding for further works with artist groups, designers, and institutions, such as the Museum Ulm, IMAGINE THE CITY, nextmuseum, and the Reykjavík Art Museum. Since then, she moves between project coordination, production, and strategic conception of exhibitions. She is currently a Master's Student in the Department of Spatial Strategies and a research associate at Muthesius University where she coordinates the university's first postgraduate Sustainability Design Lab. Since 2020 she is a member of INTER-. After an internship at Ellen Blumenstein's cultural program IMAGINE THE CITY, she studied Curatorial Practice at Iceland University of the Arts. As an initiator and coordinator of various projects, the tools of communication she employs are multi-disciplinary including the exhibition, the editorial, and the public conversation, to name a few.
