Cursusdoelen
  • To speak and write intelligently about the new approach of Global Art History in relation to the art of the Netherlands from the early modern period to the present.
  • Familiarity with key artworks, media, materials, and written sources related to the theme. Insight into how contemporary globalization theories may be relevant for understanding globalizing trends from the early modern period onwards.
  • Familiarity with the historical and contemporary terms and concepts, relevant to understand the development of Netherlandish art in a global context.
  • To critically evaluate current trends in the historiography of Netherlandish art and imagine new possibilities for the field.
Inhoud
The course looks at processes of artistic encounter and exchange from the early modern period to the present day through the lens of the new approach of “Global Art History”. It will take its cue from the Netherlands and their relation to the world, both in a historical and a contemporary perspective.
 
In the first half of the course, participants will set out to explore the ways in which Netherlandish art testifies to the increased interconnectivity of the Early Modern world. The Low Countries were an essential node during “First Globalization”: Antwerp and Amsterdam became global capitals while the ‘world’s first multinational’, the Dutch East India Company, heralded the age of classical capitalism. Fortuitous factors, including successful mercantile logistics, the geographical reach of the Jesuit mission, and the thriving publishing and translation industry made the area a crucible of cultural exchange. Everyday lives changed as foreign luxuries, and local copies, became widely available. Eventually, Dutch imitations of Chinese porcelain found their way to colonists in Surinam.

In the second half of the course the time line will be extended to the global art world of the 20th-21st centuries and contemporary approaches of global art history. Themes that will play a role are, amongst others, global versus local; the agency of material culture; Orientalism and the exotic; cultural appropriation and hybridity; and cross-mediality.

The entrance requirements for Exchange Students will be checked by the International Office and the Programme coordinator. Acceptance is not self-evident.
