Juliette Huygen is an Amsterdam based (jewellery) maker, art critic and programmer, illustrator and researcher with an interest in intermediality, animism, material culture, rituals, hybridity and the agency of objects. Juliette has a BA in Product Design from the ArtEZ art academy in Arnhem and continued their studies at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam with a master Comparative Arts and Media Studies and a research master Critical Studies in Art and Culture. During their studies they developed an interest in the agency of objects and the alternative narratives they can convey, focusing on the medium of film in particular. their research congregates around the interdisciplinary connections between material culture, narratology, design theory, art history, anthropology, philosophy, material religion and media studies. 

Juliette currently works at the Research Center for Material Culture, the flagship research institute within the Tropenmuseum, Museum Volkenkunde, the Afrika Museum  and the Wereldmuseum that serves as a focal point for research on ethnographic collections. Aside from their work at the RCMC, Juliette occasionally writes for Metropolis M, works as a production assistant for Studio Drift and has recently finished editing a publication on Renny Ramakers as part of her archival research of Droog Design.
