Robert-Jonathan Koeyers

Robert-Jonathan Koeyers is a multidisciplinary artist and storyteller. He studied animation at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and graduated cum laude with a visual poem titled ‘Here’ (2018) for which he was awarded the ‘Drempelprijs’. ‘Here’ is an experimental visual poem, combining film, photography, and animation to examine the lived Black experience. By weaving personal and often nostalgic images with images we’ve seen a million times, Robert-Jonathan creates a stirring montage that works on both an introspective as well as a political level.
