The work of visual artist Michiel Huijben (NL, 1985) centers around architecture. His writing, performances and installations depart from, draw on, or intervene in built environments to voice unspoken narratives and conjure speculative legacies. He holds a BFA from St. Joost Academy in Breda, and an MFA from Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam. In 2013, he completed a short-track residency at De Ateliers in Amsterdam, followed by an MA in Architectural History & Theory at the Cass, London. Shortly afterward, he founded the publishing project Flat i (welcometoflat-i.net). In recent years, his work has been presented at Kunstinstituut Melly and Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam; De Appel, Amsterdam; Extra City Kunsthal in Antwerp; Matt's Gallery, London and Kunsthalle Basel and Ausstellungsraum Klingental in Basel, among other institutions. He lives and works in Rotterdam, where he is a tutor in artistic research at the Willem de Kooning Academy.
