Juliette Huijgen is an Amsterdam based product designer, art critic, art programmer and researcher with an interest in intermediality, animism, material culture, rituals, hybridity and the agency of objects. She joined the RCMC team in June 2018 to work on communications and on the production of events in Leiden and Amsterdam. Her aim at the RCMC is to further form a hybrid online and offline platform for open discussion between the public, academics, artists and museum professionals.

Juliette has a BA in Product Design from the ArtEZ art academy in Arnhem and continued her studies at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam with a master Comparative Arts and Media Studies and a research master Critical Studies in Art and Culture. During her studies she developed an interest in the agency of objects and the alternative narratives they can convey, focusing on the medium of film in particular. Her research congregates around the interdisciplinary connections between sociology, art history, material culture, narratology, anthropology, philosophy, semiotics, material religion and media studies. Aside from her position at the RCMC she does archival research for Droog Design, has her own practice as a designer and illustrator, works as a production assistant at Studio Drift, is working on a publication together with curator and design critic Aaron Betsky and graphic designer Irma Boom on the Co-founder and director of Droog Renny Ramakers, and occasionally writes for Metropolis M.
