Humanities Matter

In this age of globalisation, mutual understanding is more important than ever. If we want to work and live together, it is crucial that we understand one another. Knowledge of the Humanities provides the insight that is required to achieve this.

About the competition

Creative students, staff and alumni of the Humanities Faculty have translated the concept of 'Humanities Matter' into poems, paintings, installations and performances. They take part in the art competition 'Humanities Matter' and pay tribute to the Humanities.

The first prize is awarded by an independent jury and amounts to the fine price of €444,-! Some smaller prizes will also be awarded to other exciting and interesting artworks.

About the jury

  • Rosalien van der Poel, institute manager at the Academy of Creative and Performing Arts (ACPA)
  • Olivier Fajgenblat, student member of the faculty board of the Faculty of Humanities
  • Barthel Brussee, visual artist, Alumnus from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague
  • Alexander Dencher, lecturer at the Centre for the Arts in Society and Junior Curator of Decorative Arts at the Rijksmuseum
