UltraSexi is a Dutch, Amsterdam based, cooperative, creative and production platform for—and with—young talent. It was founded in 2008 with the aim to match, encourage, inspire and support young creative people. Throughout its existence a significant network growth has taken place in all creative fields connected.
From music and visual arts to fashion and theatre, We instrumentalise nightlife to shed light upon our aims of living a more creative and free spirited society.
Atmosphere and accessibility are desirable at events. From meetings and openings, private dates and gastronomic restaurants, to the door of a busy nightclub and festival stages. After a countless afternoons, evenings and nights, I have extensive experience in facilitating festive occasions and understanding the fragility of such events. Feeling flawlessly if more or less contact or narration is desired. A good host knows its role on the floor and behind the scenes, fulfilling the wishes and unconscious desires of guests. With a broad knowledge of the culinary landscape, a host must also be correct, neat, and efficiently armed for any situation in its broader cultural and political backdrop.

UltraSexi was commissioned by Stedelijk Museum and Amsterdam Art Weekend to direct the after party for the opening of the Isa Genzken exhibition. For one night only (Saturday November 28th of 2015) we built an underground club in the basement of the old Citroën Garage and curated the line-up and arts.
Two years later we were back with Stedelijk Museum to direct the official opening party of JUMP INTO THE FUTURE! Stedelijk Museum x Amsterdam Art Weekend Borgmann collection exhibit at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. We built a fully functioning club inside the entrance hall of SM and curated the night.
F*cking Pop Queers!

IT'S FUN! IT'S POP! AND SOOO GAY! FPQ started in Studio80 on a Wednesday night in 2006 and from 2009 it's every second Saturday of the month at Jimmy Woo until 2014. The party is a parody on the cliches of nightlife and its theme parties, celebrating and reacting on contemporary pop culture.
FPQ XL is the bigger sibling of FPQ in the famous Amsterdam pop temple, Paradiso. Multiple times a year we organise an over the top edition of fun and craziness with our biggest edition annually during Pride Amsterdam.

The monthly queer club night at Studio80, M.U.L.T.I.S.E.X.I., was extremely successful. Visited by the young artistic avant-garde and fashion scene of Amsterdam. This night was first organised on August 5th 2005 at Pride Amsterdam. Its aim was to give off a signal, indicating that there is more than the monocultures of the straight, gay and lesbian world. From the start the party has had healthy mix of people from various backgrounds and sexual orientations. The nights where always developed with an underlying theme, which is enlarged through satire. We love to see our guests as playful children and their artistic efforts are highly appreciated.
M.U.L.T.I.S.E.X.I. had his last night at the 4th of June 2011 with the theme: "M.U.L.T.I.S.E.X.I. FOREVER”. In 2017 we made a reappearance at the closing night of the discotheque. Shaking the club one last time to ground.
