Nell Donkers (1964)


Since 2002 Nell Donkers has managed the archive (library, archive and collection) of De Appel in Amsterdam and made it digitally and physically accessible. The archive represents the memory of De Appel and has become a knowledge- and meeting place for researchers, artists and art lovers, wherein Donkers plays a connecting role. In different set-ups Donkers initiates and organizes presentations and events with and about the rich history of De Appel using ephemera and digitized audio and video. In addition, she invites contemporary artists who work with themes like archiving, bookmaking, systemising and use the tactic of "story in storytelling."
