Steven Jouwersma’s practice examines music culture in different parts of the world and intervenes local music scenes by organizing events, creating installations with musicians, initiating new bands or leading a minuscule music venue.
His work is shaped by a social process and cannot typically be characterized by its material or medium, but by a process-related approach and attitude in which the (social and musical) context is the driving factor in forming an idea.
