Sandra den Hamer joins the Board of Human Activities

1 November 2022

We are very pleased to announce that Sandra den Hamer will join the board of Human Activities.

For the past 15 years, Den Hamer was the director of the EYE Filmmuseum in Amsterdam, a museum at the forefront of film conservation and the presentation of film as an art form. From 1996 to 2007, Den Hamer was the director of the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) and before that, she led the CineMart and Hubert Bals Fund at IFFR. In 2015, she received the Gouden Kalf for Film Culture, a prize dedicated to individuals or organizations who have made a special contribution to Dutch film culture.

Derk Sauer, Chair of the Board:

"With her wealth of experience in the film and museum world, Sandra will make an invaluable contribution to Human Activities’ mission to prove that art that critiques inequality can resolve this inequality in real, material terms. Her expertise will be especially meaningful in the upcoming White Cube museum program that will make sure that communities on the plantations who have financed the art world, can also decolonize."

In addition to Sandra den Hamer, the Board of Human Activities consists of Chairman Derk Sauer, Treasurer Anton Kramer and members Azu Nwagbogu, Delya Allakhverdova and Gert Jan Van Den Bergh.
