Koen Hauser (1972)

Koen Hauser works with photography and film to create his (b.1972, the Netherlands) intangible practice that flows between art, fashion, science and the archival. Whilst some photographs are concerned only with its aesthetic appeal, others cast aside this preoccupation to forefront the idea behind the image. Regardless of purpose or context, Hauser’s work is always underpinned by his education in Social Psychology, entwining philosophy, mythology, animism, religion and spirituality into his work in a metaphysical manner.


Koen Hauser finished his Masters of Science in Social Psychology (1996, Rijksuniversiteit Leiden), later followed by studying photography at the Royal Academy of Art and the Gerrit Rietveld Academy (2002). He frequently collaborates with different cultural institutes, museums and archives like Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, the National Archive and the Rijksmuseum. He received several grants from the Mondrian Fund, and was awarded the title ‘photographer of the Netherlands’ in 2014. His work is held in both national and international public and private collections, including gemeentemuseum (Den Haag) and the museum of photography (Houston). His work has been shown across Europe, the United States and China in various solo and group exhibitions including FOAM (Amsterdam), Unseen Photofair (Amsterdam), Institut Néerlandais (Paris) and the He Xiang Ning Art Museum (Shigzen, China). 


As an art teacher he worked at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and the Willem de Kooning Academie. In 2019 he will start teaching a course at The Royal Academy of Art (KABK), The Hague.
