Sophie Krier develops tools for collective narration and reflection. Initially trained in textile design at the Design Academy Eindhoven, today she interweaves artistic research, publishing and education in her “editorial practice”. Between 2004 and 2009 she led the undergraduate course designLAB (Rietveld Academie, Netherland). She has curated and moderated symposia on questions related to craft and industry, the future of education, the ethics of materials, visual culture, and artistic tactics for urban ecology. In 2008, Krier initiated Field Essays, a research on the intimate relation between making and thinking in art & design, published by Onomatopee. In 2014 Krier was artist in residence at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris with Field Essays. On invitation of University College Roosevelt (Netherland), Krier is currently developing & directing a new Art & Design Practice program in the spirit of Liberal Arts & Sciences, as well as an Arts Fellow research position on the question of resilient societies.
