Heidi Vogels is an Amsterdam based artist, filmmaker and organiser. Since her graduation at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2000, she has applied photography, film and other forms of research in her work and projects. Since several years, she explores heterotopic spaces, specifically the garden, in a film project in the Medina of Fez, and in the oases of Tighmert in Morocco. Currently she developed Garden Collectives, a collaborative program through which she explores ‘other spaces’ in the city together with colleagues and participants in Amsterdam Nieuw-West. A city district home to art space Bureau Postjesweg, an initiative she co-initiated and developed which opened its doors last year. 
Next to this Heidi was also part of the development of Cracking the Frame Presents, an irregular program of screenings, talks and events in Amsterdam, investigating the connections between documentary film and visual arts.
Her film projects have been presented at Quartair in The Hague, Jut Art Museum in Taipei, Appartement 22 in Rabat, Institut Francais in Fez, LE18 in Marrakech, PuntWG and Bureau Postjesweg in Amsterdam.

Recently her work was presented in exhibitions at le18 in Marrakech, Quartair in The Hague and Jut Art Museum in Taipei.
