Maureen Mooren is a graphic designer based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where she runs her own studio. In her work Mooren, by definition, raises the issue of representation. Mooren graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy, Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in 1996 and collaborated with Daniel van der Velden until 2007 on a variety of projects, mainly in the cultural field. Mooren & Van der Velden designed amongst others ‘Archis’ (now Volume) magazine, the identity of the Holland Festival, and several catalogues such as ‘For Real’ for the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and artist books of amongst Haeque Yang, Job Koelewijn and Jonathan Monk. They won the first prize Concours International Chaumont in 2007. Since 2007 Mooren has operated independently and developed identities, books and printed materials, still mostly for cultural clients such as Holland Festival, Marres, Centre for Contemporaine Culture in Maastricht, and If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution. In addition, she designs artists’ books, amongst others for Manon de Boer, Joachim Koester and Keren Cytter. Since October 2013 Mooren is responsible for the visual identity of Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam. In 2011 she was one of the participating artists in the exhibition ‘Opera Aperta/Loose Work’ in the Dutch Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Between 2001-2004 Mooren taught at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in the Graphic Design department in Arnhem, the Netherlands. Between 2011-2014, Mooren taught at the Werkplaats Typografie in Arnhem.
