Maaike Gouwenberg is a curator and producer working between Europe and the US. Focused on performative practices, and through long-term collaborations with artists and curators, she specializes in the intersection between theater and the visual arts. After running her own multidisciplinary exhibition space Expodium in Utrecht, Gouwenberg participated in the renowned De Appel Curatorial Program (2006-2007) and worked as a curator at the research and production platform If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution (2007 - 2011). Over the last five years, she produced major projects at Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam including Alexandre Singh’s “The Humans”, and Michael Portnoy’s “Relational Stalinism - The Musical,” and “The Ten Murders of Josephine” with Rana Hamadeh.

A.P.E develops performances, exhibitions, printed matter and meetings that cannot be realized within traditional institutional formats or frameworks. In 2014 she co-founded the multidisciplinary residency program Deltaworkers in New Orleans. In 2017, Gouwenberg joined the Performa team in New York as the biennial producer.
