Grids and Boundaries: Mapping the Cultural Landscape in Remy Jungerman’s Art

Remy Jungerman, born in 1959, resides and works in Amsterdam. Initially, he pursued his education at the Academy for Higher Arts and Cultural Studies in Paramaribo, Surinam, and later continued his studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.
