Charl Landvreugd

Charl Landvreugd (1971) was born in Paramaribo, and grew up in Rotterdam. He looks at the idea of Blackness as a political tool and is specifically interested in how Afro diversity works in the arts. He uses his understanding of these mechanisms as a way to speak about our communal efforts to speak culture in contemporary continental European society.
As an artist/researcher, Landvreugd creates sculptures, installations, performances, photographs, videos, texts and exhibitions. Since 2009, his work has been presented in the US, UK, the Caribbean, Senegal and the Netherlands. His work is published in magazines such as ARC, Small Axe, Open Arts Journal and several catalogues. Landvreugd studied at Goldsmiths College, London and Columbia University in New York. He is currently a PhD candidate at the Royal College of Art in London
