Juul van der Laan

makes films*


“I feel at ease navigating the overlapping domains of science, philosophy and art”

Juul’s work is characterised by a natural inclination to question general assumptions within the realm of the intellectual.
Also, she’d rather not wait until the ‘mainstream’ finally catches up.

studio [thnkthnk] is the place from which she creates.
