The OSK section Modern & Contemporary Art, headed by Katja Kwastek (VU) and Ann-Sophie Lehmann (RUG), invites you to a State-of-the-Art-Meeting of our field in the Netherlands. The section meeting offers a great opportunity to meet & greet and form a sense of the national research and teaching infrastructures.  

During the section meeting, departments will present their research programs and future ambitions. Furthermore, current and recently finished PhD students will give a short poster presentation on their project. In addition we will take the chance to welcome the new professor in modern and contemporary art history, Eva-Maria Troelenberg (UU). The section meeting mainly focuses on research at universities, this time, while the final statement of Centraal Museum-director Bart Rutten should be seen as a ‘teaser’ for a future meeting focusing on research in museums and research institutes.  


Preliminary program:

12:30-13:00: Welcome with coffee and tea, and the opportunity to see the PhD posters.

13:00-14:00: Research on Modern and Contemporary Art at Dutch Universities: brief statements by members of the respective departments.
