Tina Lenz

Tina Lenz is a Design Anthropologist living and working in the Netherland.

Design anthropology is an approach that explores global forces and enables forms of participatory engagement. In this emerging field of artistic and human centered inquiry Tina Lenz creates zones of improvisation and invites people into a design process. Existing conditions, places and rituals are collectively mapped, visualized and reimagined to discover possible alternative futures. Tina is a German design researcher based in Amsterdam. In 1996 she graduated BFA in Graphic Design from Academy of Fine Art & Design St.Joost, Breda and completed in 1999 her MFA Design at Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam.
