Maya Rasker turned her ambition to writing essays, theatre, and scenario after a career as producer in the film industry. Since her prize-winning debut Unknown Destination (2000), her work has been published in the Netherlands, the United States, Spain, Russia, Germany, Hungary and Turkey. In 2012 she completed her Master in Artistic Research (Universiteit van Amsterdam) with a thesis on the position of the author after publication of the work. She was appointed Research Coordinator for the School of Media at the University of the Arts Utrecht from 2015-2017. As lecturer at various MA and BA art institutes, she designs and teaches courses on writing and (artistic) research, on the transformation of the autobiography, and on the notion of 'beginning' in art production and research.
