Annosh Urbanke


Annosh Urbanke (1992) works in the areas of writing, curating, photography and artistic research.
In her artistic research and work as a photographer, she explores nostalgic and contemporary forms of tourism. While considering personal and collective experiences, she looks at today’s consumption and performative elements in tourism.

She holds a BA in museology (Reinwardt Academy) and MA in modern and contemporary art history (Utrecht University). Annosh writes in fiction and about art for Mister Motley, Bronze Age, Metropolis M, Tubelight and Universe, among others. As an independent curator she made group exhibitions and public programs for MAMA, This Works, Atelierhaus Aachen, Museum het Schip and Vensterbank Leiden. In 2021, she focused on the publicity, public programme and international distribution of the publisher VALIZ. At Framer Framed, she worked as a coordinator of education. Since 2020, she has been working for Stichting de Vrolijkheid on making art projects visible that are created within asylum seekers' centres.
