From 1 to 6 September 2013 the Rijksmuseum and the RKD (Netherlands Institute for Art History) will organize a 6-day course: The New Rijksmuseum and the RKD (Netherlands Institute for Art History): Presenting and Researching Seventeenth-Century Dutch Art and History. Registration is possible until 1 July
The aim of this 6-day course is to give an in-depth introduction on the newly re-opened Rijksmuseum, the RKD (Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistorische Documentatie/Netherlands Institute for Art History), as well as research facilities and tools.
A series of lectures, presentations, workshops and excursions with prominent scholars and museum professionals will provide a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in presenting Dutch art and history, research and exhibition projects, as well as methodologies. A number of the sessions have been designed to encourage interactive discussion between the speakers and the course participants. There will be ample opportunity for discussion in front of the original works of art. Moreover, the participants are offered the possibility to build up a network of contacts with scholars and curators in The Netherlands.
