Bart Lunenburg


Born in 1995, Utrecht (NL)
Lives and works in Utrecht (NL)

Bart Lunenburg lives and works in Utrecht. He first graduated in photography at the HKU Utrecht University of the Arts and later in art history at the University of Amsterdam. He studied in Rotterdam at the Bcademie, an institute that helps recently graduated students navigate their way in the art world. He has participated in many group exhibitions, residencies, artist talks, has received numerous awards and scholarships, and in 2021 published a book This Creaking Floor and All the Ceilings Below. His multidisciplinary artistic practice (photography, video, drawing, sculpture, installation) deals with architecture, architectural memory, architectural history and heritage, combining these with his own observations and experiences.
