Ruth Timmermans (NED), 1/2017

Trained as a historian, Ruth Timmermans started as a researcher at the University of Leuven in Belgium, studying gender, trade-unions and colonialism.

However, her passion for music, art, literature and film surfaced soon, and in 2000, she started writing for Gonzo, an independent magazine on music and culture. Timmermans was a board member at a foundation for industrial heritage, and at that time, she studied chimneys, in particular; she also worked for a production company of experimental films. During the past six years she has been involved as a curator and producer in various cultural projects both in her home country and abroad through e.g. the Tandem exchange program. Recently, Timmermans has  conducted research into the representation of women in electronic music and arts. During her stay at KulttuuriKauppila, she continued this research, combining her work in the cultural field and her research background.
