Judith Kadee new director Villa Mondriaan

Museum Villa Mondriaan in Winterswijk is pleased to announce the appointment of Judith Kadee as the new director as of 1 September. The board has decided to choose a young museum professional again. Just like the current director, Anne Kremers, Judith Kadee was partly trained at Villa Mondriaan, where she fulfilled the role of junior director in the first half of 2015.

The director of museum Villa Mondriaan, Anne Kremers (27), announced her resignation on Tuesday. She started at Villa Mondriaan as a junior director under the former director, Wim van Krimpen (Kunsthal Rotterdam, Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, Amsterdam Art Fair), who recommended her for this position. In September 2013, she became the youngest museum director in the Netherlands, replacing the oldest museum director. Kremers has shaped Villa Mondriaan over the past three years with great fervour, creativity and perseverance, creating partnerships with national and international museums and developing a program with a diverse range of activities aimed at education, lectures and seminars. She looks back positively on her experience, in which she has built strong foundations for the future of the museum.

The board of Villa Mondriaan is convinced that Judith Kadee will be an enthusiastic and professional successor. She interned for eight months at Villa Mondriaan as a junior director, during which she gave a very positive impression to visitors, stakeholders and the board of Villa Mondriaan. She turns 24 in September, and has graduated from Amsterdam University College with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences. She is currently finishing her Masters in Museum Studies at University College London and has worked at institutions like the Saatchi Gallery in London and EYE Film Museum in Amsterdam. She will present herself at the opening of the new exhibition at Villa Mondriaan, ‘Mondriaan meets Komrij’ on 9 September 2016. The board expects her to continue, expand on and deepen the work of Anne Kremers. Wim van Krimpen will remain as advisor at Villa Mondriaan.
