Vrije Academie has officially settled in het Cromhouthuis, a monumental canal house on the Herengracht in Amsterdam! Every month, we provide an interesting lunch lecture in English. We offer various topics: from art history, to fashion, photography, architecture, and philosophy: all will be included! The lectures take place in the beautiful Jacob de Witzaal and can be booked as seperate classes. When will you visit? Pick your favorite topic from the following dates:
November 8 - Oene Dijk: Superdutch Learn how Dutch architecture conquered the world! In the 1990s, a group of leading Dutch architectural firms emerged and then went on to conquer the world with their architecture. The name comes from the book of the same name, published in 2000, by Bart Lootsma. Oene Dijk first outlines the conditions and circumstances in which Superdutch was able to flourish and then shows a selection of the extraordinary architecture of the Superdutch architects.
December 12 - Wouter Maas: Michaelina Wautier Portraits, a still life, maybe the odd landscape. Those are pretty much the subjects of painting that those rare women artists of the early modern period were allowed to practice. Or at least, that is what we think. In seventeenth-century Brussels, the Baroque painter Michaelina Wautier seems to have defied the rules of convention, dictated by the male dominated art scene. Talented and successful, she dared to depict what seemed impossible for any other woman: the male nude.
We also provide a weekly lunch lecture in Dutch on Thursdays.
