We provide interuniversity education for research master students and PhD candidates

We also act as a network hub at the intersection of academic and museum practice, bringing together scholars and curators from major institutions around the Netherlands. Currently based at the University of Amsterdam, the OSK aims to serve as a national forum for the discipline, encouraging research into, and debate around, art objects in their historical and present-day contexts.
