Anneke Ingwersen (born in Germany) works as an artist, writer and artist educator based in the Netherlands. A year long stay  in the Czech Republic in 1992 made a lifelong impression on her around topics as belonging, migration and cultural identity/diversity.

Initially trained as an art therapist and later as an artist Ingwersen holds an artistic practice around how the shadow could serve as a metaphor for another view on belonging, migration and coloniality of power. Since her Master studies at the Dutch Art Institute of ArtEZ, NL, in 2015 Ingwersen had used her methods to investigate the European Colonial history and its traces in our post-colonial Now, in regard to topics as social discrimination and education.

Her practice combines moments of solitary contemplation and image production of cut outs, shadowplay and installations with moments of knowledge production and sharing with other artists, researchers or groups of pupils or adults. As an artist educator she gives workshops shadowplay, has developed several community art projects and works parttime as an advisor for cultural education at Rozet, Arnhem.

In 2010 she got a stipendship of the Mondrian Fonds (NL) and in 2007 by Gap for the residency at Schloss Ringenberg (D). Her work took part at Sonsbeek 20<24, Sonsbeek ’16 International TransACTION (NL), Van Abbe Museum (NL), Summerschool TAAK at Marfa Texas (US), Schloss Ringenberg (D), Malkasten Düsseldorf (D) and Blast (D), Museum Arnhem (NL). Several of her artworks made on commission are part of the collections of Radboud University and the University of Applied Science, HAN, Nijmegen.
