Ying Que

Ying Que is based in Utrecht and holds an MA in anarchist anthropology. She became one of Nina bell F. when she worked for Casco during the Composing the Commons research trajectory on project and community from 2013 to 2016.

After leaving the team she has been involved with Casco’s annual assemblies in 2018 and 2019. In 2017 she co-initiated niet normaal*, a queer collective organizing parties in Utrecht. She also joined Read-in, with whom she made a program for the Unlearning my Library Forum and since then experimenting with reading and memorising. She was co-editor for Catalgue No.3: was a collaboration between Read-in, Display Distribute (Hong-Kong) and KUNCI (Yogyakarta) on an immaterial publishing project for Seoul Media City Biennale. The last half of 2019 she was an organiser during the Trainings for the Not Yet by artist Jeanne van Heeswijk at BAK, cooking with the Basic Activist Kitchen.

Her practice is informed by curatorial and artistic research, feminist economy and DIY culture. Currently she is grounding herself in the new decade and working on a long term research plan, dealing with topics of violence, witchcraft and forgotten ancestral knowledges.
