STAFF_ ROOM was established in 2015 by art historian Merel Willemsen and fellow art historian and artist Wendela Hubrecht. Based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, STAFF_ ROOM exclusively represents socially and politically engaged artists. Engaged art practices are typically developed and delivered through collaboration and participation over a period of time. Actively participating in this ‘unsellable’ artistic process, STAFF_ ROOM distils semis from it that are of interest to collectors. As a not-for-profit gallery STAFF_ ROOM has no permanent exhibition space; it manifests online and offline wherever social and political issues lead her.
