From Print to Paint: Histories and Methods of Artistic Production

when 5 August 2019 - 16 August 2019
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 3 EC
fee EUR 1280

The course is interactive and has a firm hands-on component. It integrates methods typical for the humanities and historical disciplines with work in the studio or lab. At one moment you may find yourself decoding a recipe for paint in a historical manuscript; at another moment you might be introduced to the practicalities of the printing press. There will also be visits to museum collections to observe the artworks on display and apply what you will learn to discuss the exhibits. Upon completion, you will have deepened you knowledge about art and museums with insights from recent developments in technical art history and heritage studies.
You will benefit from Utrecht University’s Kunstlab, the relevant art and cultural heritage collections in Utrecht, and other infrastructure (see https://artechne.wp.hum.uu.nl/ ). Lab materials, travel, and entrance to museums are all included in the course fee.
