Studio Kessler is led by Martijn Kessler. The studio works closely together with a number of independent artists and partners in change management, events and art projects.
From an early age I became interested in the interfaces between human lives, the corporate world and the abstract world on a map. In the late seventies I refined the medium into an art-and communication form and received my first commissions to translate corporate histories and personal lives into geo-fictitious artworks. On the same time I had a business on the Dutch stock exchange.
By the end of 1990, after several articles were published in national magazines, I developed the successful concept for Company Map workshops. We got involved in the world of change and strategy execution. Our roadmap modules fitted very well to create commitment and engagement in change processes. In the mean time the mapping projects for families and institutions are reaching new heights.
