'Summer Course for the Study of the Arts in Flanders: Belgian Fin de Siècle 1880-1914' Coordinated by the Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Mu.ZEE Ostend and the Flemish Art Collection
June 24 - July 4, 2018
In the summer of 2018, several Flemish research centres, universities and art museums will collaboratively organise the fourth edition of the Summer Course for the Study of the Arts in Flanders. This edition zooms in on Belgian Fin de Siècle Art between 1880 and 1914. The target group are master and PhD-students in (art)history from all over the world.
The aim of the summer course is to bring to Flanders, annually, a select group of 20 national and international, highly qualified young researchers and to present them with an intensive 11-day programme of lectures, discussions, and on-site visits. The theme varies annually, with a focus on a different art-historical period each year. The aim is to provide the participants with a clear insight into the Flemish art collections from the period at hand, as well as into the available and most suited research methods, the state of the research and the research needs. After the course, the candidates will be ambassadors for the Flemish arts abroad.
The fourth edition of the summer course is titled Belgian Fin de Siècle 1880-1914 and will take place from June 24 through July 4, 2018. Its content is coordinated by the Museum of Fine Arts Ghent, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp, Mu.ZEE Ostend and the Flemish Art Collection. This edition includes excursions to Ghent, Bruges, Ostend, Brussels, Paris, Namur and Antwerp. The language of the Summer Course is English. Some lectures may be in French.
The deadline has been extended. You may apply now through January 7, 2018 [extended deadline].
