About Inez

Inez van der Spek

Inez van der Spek is an independent Dutch writer and editor. She has a background in theology (MA, in Nijmegen) and cultural studies (PhD, Utrecht and Banff, Canada), and favors the intersections of contemporary art and literature, popular culture, religion, and life questions (not answers). See her publications. She also writes educational material for children.

As a child she lived with her family in South Australia. Later she returned to the places of her childhood to make a radio program with the renowned journalist Henk van Hoorn. This resulted in Kraaienwacht, an essay on a two-forked road: migration and art, involving two modern Aboriginal artists, photographer Michael Riley and multimedia artist Fiona Foley.
