Moniek Toebosch is a multidisciplinary artist: she is a performer, singer, actress, painter, who not only studied fashion graphics at St Joost (art academy) in Breda, but also singing and guitar at the Brabant conservatory in Tilburg. Since the late 1960s, she has appeared regularly in Frans Swartjes’ films. Moreover, she often performs in the fields of music and the theatre. Her installations are almost always based on (stage) performances and are seldom independent works.
