This four-week course is offered in collaboration with the Freie Universität in Berlin. By combining studies from Utrecht and Berlin, you will be able to get a glimpse of different centuries of art history in Northern Europe, compare differences and similarities between the two locations, and join museum visits. You will have the chance to explore the art scenes of these two vibrant cities, both from a past and present perspective.
Discover more than 1,000 years of European Art and European Art History this summer. Learn about the Golden Age in the Netherlands and the many social, historical, religious and cultural factors that influenced art production during that time. Find out how life shaped art and how the arts shaped life in Utrecht during the 16th century. Then join our classes from Berlin and go back further in time to medieval times. Learn about the varying circumstances that shaped the production and reception of German art from the Middle Ages through the twenty-first century. The notions of a national identity and its connections to artistic expressions will be an important element of this course and introduce you to political art and the politics of art.
The course is open to participants (graduates and non-graduates) from all disciplines with a keen interest in Art History. No experience required.
The final payment deadline for registrations is May 22, 2022. After May 22, 2022, this course will only be available without housing in Berlin, i.e. participants who register and are confirmed after that date will then have to find their own housing in Berlin. In case of cancellation by the participant after May 23, 2022, the service fee (100 EUR) as well as the fee for accommodation at Ju-Li Hostel in Berlin (400 EUR) amounting to a total of 500 EUR cannot be refunded. The remaining amount will be refunded according to our regular cancellation policy.
The transfer from Utrecht to Berlin is included in the course fee. Students are responsible for their travel from their home country to Utrecht and from Berlin to their home country. Because Utrecht Summer School arranges travel between the two locations, housing is mandatory.
