Summer course Once Upon a Time… The Collection Now

12/08/2014 - 14/08/2014
10:00 - 16:00

Three-day course (in Dutch)

In a short but intensive three-day course you are introduced to art from 1900 on the basis of the collection of the Van Abbemuseum. On these days you will be presented with a varied programme. We will look at and discuss works of art and art movements in the gallery, ask you to perform short tasks yourselves and provide background information. We also devote attention to how an exhibition is compiled and supervised. There is plenty of room to exchange ideas on the experiences which you can have, both in and outside the museum.

In consultation with the participants on the course a simple lunch will be  organised in addition to the shorter tea or coffee break (outside if the weather is good). 

The course will be held from 12 to 14 August, from 10.00 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Tuesday 12 August - Modernism (1900-1960)
Wednesday 13 August - Conceptual art and postmodernism (1960-1990)
Thursday 14 August - Art worldwide (after 1990)
