Wendelien van Oldenborgh

Wendelien van Oldenborgh (1962, NL) develops works for which the cinematic format is used as a methodology for production and as the basic language for various forms of presentation. She often uses the format of a public film shoot, collaborating with participants in different scenarios, to co-produce a script and orientate the work towards its final outcome.
