ABOUT MY SPACE
I live in an art community in a beautiful modernist building in the close industrial West. My house is well connected with the center of the city - it's 5 minutes walk to the train station and 10 minutes cycling to Leidseplein, or Museumplein. Rembrandtpark and Vondelpark are just around the corner. The space is 50m2 and it can accomodate three people (a double bed and a mattress). There is an extra double bed sofa in the corridor, in case of emergency. The bathroom next door (two showers , two toilets) and the kitchen are shared with 7 other artists - 2 choreographers, 2 other filmmakers and 3 visual artists. There are 40 more artists living in the building.
I have one guest bike that could be borrowed.
I don't expect you to spend time with me, but I would like to welcome people who are expecting something more than a roof over their head. We could have wine or coffee, or eat together, and I would like to establish a conversation online before inviting you, since I would introduce you also to my community, that requires extra trust. Except for that you are free to do your stuff.
The rate depends on how many people are staying, for how long, and wether I am there or leaving them the keys.

ABOUT ME & MY WORK
I am a director and a creative with an experience in costume and set design for film and theatre. I make documentary films and music video's but recently I moved towards video art and video-sound installation. I love working in teams and with challenging projects, and my first profession would always be filmmaking. I want to travel the world, talk and dance all night and live the work.
In poetic road trip through landscape of winter Poland, the intimate portraits of drivers are confronted with grotesque architecture. Still frames capture absurd objects and people frozen in reflection over what's really important.
"Julia's studio is really beautiful, quiet and sunny, with easy transportation access to the centre of Amsterdam, but also to Schiphol and the suburbs of the city (it's really-really close to the metro station). Julia is very nice and friendly, as well as her neighbours who showed me around."
"Julia was a terrific host. She made sure someone picked me up from the train station and showed me around, and gathered event information relevant to my interests. She even took me along to a party and introduced me to some friends in the creative community. She was responsive over texts, and very generous with her time.
Her room is a spacious classroom in an old school building. It was clean, and comfortable. It's on the outskirts of the city, but very close to public transportation and a short walk from several parks, cafes, and markets. The building itself doubles as a museum and performance space, so there was always something going on there."
"Julia was great! I only visited for an evening for Amsterdam Art weekend, and, since she couldn't meet me at an opening as originally planned, she went so far as to stay up until 2am to let me in/get me situated. Despite my short visit we still managed to have a delicious breakfast (that she so kindly made) over which we discussed art, politics and life:Dutch culture and urban planning, gentrification in Amsterdam, the social choreography of the sidewalk and so much more. I almost missed the open studios that I came for as we could have easily talked all day! She resides in a live/work arts community above de appel's new galleries just outside the ring, so I even got to see the Hiwa K show there on my way out. Her place was cozy and tidy (which is not always the case for live/work situations ;-) I recommend for anyone who wants to feel a part of an art community away from home ."
