Jan Verwoert is a critic and writer on contemporary art and cultural theory, based in Berlin. He is a contributing editor of frieze magazine and his writing has appeared in different journals, anthologies and monographs. He teaches at the Piet Zwart Institute Rotterdam and is a professor for theory at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts. In the past he was a member of the advisory board of the Munich Kunstverein and has been a guest professor at the Royal College of Art in London. His work is focussed around the desire to develop concepts that redescribe the role of emotion, motion, action, intuition and sentience in the practice of art and thinking. His criticism is directed against a new system of control in which the pressure to perform goes hand in hand with the demand to produce events, deliver results, represent identities and surrender to evaluation.
