On the 24th of June the Research Master: Arts of the Netherlands will host their end-of-the-year symposium at VOX-POP. During this day the Master students will present their final works.
As of the academic year 2020-2021, the Master’s programme Arts of the Netherlands will be integrated into the Dual Master's programme Curating Art and Cultures. This two-year programme is designed to train the curators and (museum) researchers of the future. Within the programme, you have the opportunity to specialise in Curating Art and Cultures or Arts of the Netherlands.
Arts of the Netherlands takes a historical and object-oriented approach and aims to teach students how to carry out cutting-edge research on Netherlandish art in an international context. Students will develop academic research methods both in the classroom and during a seven-month internship. This provides unmatched opportunities for examining and investigating the physical objects of our studies and for exploring the academic approach to art-historical research within the museum. The programme is committed to the study of painting, prints, drawings, sculpture and applied arts.
During this symposium eleven Arts of the Netherlands' students will present the research results from their internship or master. The presentations will cover a broad area of topics, ranging from the clothing of (possible) nuns to the American copyists in the Frans Hals Museum.
