Tiiu Meiner is an Estonian curator and writer based in Rotterdam, NL. 

Working at the intersection of large and small-scale institutions, her practice takes form through curating, public discussions, poetry, essay writing and film. 

I'm always happy to hear from you for inquiries about previous works, writing commissions or collaborations.
