Minouche Wardenaar studied Arts and Culture: Art History (MA) at the University of Amsterdam. She focussed her studies on museums and globalisation. This interest has resulted in her MA thesis Intercultural collecting policy in art museums. White monoculture and intercultural assessment criteria in Dutch art museums (UvA, 2015).
During her studies she wrote for the online magazine CLEEFT.nl (formerly CultuurBewust.nl) and worked as online editor at the art magazine Kunstbeeld.
