OSK/Vereniging Rembrandt ResMA Summer School 2018-2019
‘Forms of display: presenting the Dutch public art collections and their exhibitions to the public’
Enrolment is possible until 30 November 2018
More than most visitors (and academics) might realize, the rhetoric of display is of great importance for the ways in which we get to know and experience a collection or the story an exhibition wants to tell. In this course, some recent displays will be analyzed, curators will be interviewed, and reviews of exhibitions discussed. As a preparation, the group will also visit and discuss For the Love of Art, the exhibition on ten years of acquisitions for the Dutch public art collections supported by the Rembrandt Association, which is curated by Peter Hecht. It is on display in the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo until 3 February 2019.
The course will be taught as a seminar with (subsidized) excursions. There will be a preparatory briefing. Furthermore, students will be required to give small presentations during the seminar. They will also write an essay of approximately 3000-3500 words, to be handed in after the course.
Preparatory meeting: t.b.a.
Course: 8-12 July 2019
