Femke Snelting

Femke Snelting develops projects at the intersection of design, feminisms, and free software in various constellations. With Seda Guerses, Miriyam Aouragh, and Helen Pritchard, she runs the Institute for Technology in the Public Interest. Together they create spaces for articulating what computational technologies in the “public interest” might be when “public interest” is always in-the-making. She co-initiated collective research projects, digital tools, methods and publications with Constant, association for art and media in Brussels until 2021. With Jara Rocha she edited Volumetric Regimes: Material Cultures of Quantified Presence (OHP Data Browser series, 2022). Femke supports artistic research at a.pass (Brussels), PhdArts (Leiden) and MERIAN (Maastricht). She regularly teaches at XPUB (Rotterdam).
