KUNST NU is a crash course contemporary art organized by Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art and De Appel, and will start in September. Topics this year are 'Art and Activism’, 'Art and Ecology’ and more. The speakers include, among others, Nathalie Hartjes, Quinsy Gario and Ingrid Commandeur.

KUNST NU will have you gain insight into the history and context of the visual arts in an accessible and factual way. The course provides clear information and many storylines and anecdotes framing current trends in contemporary art. The approach is not chronological but thematic: the course is based on current concepts and questions in contemporary art and exhibition practice.

The speakers are professionals - artists, art critics and exhibition makers - and therefore don't consider art from a distance, but are part of the art wold. They monitor new artistic developments and make you part of their insights, preferences and insider knowledge. Participating in KUNST NU does not require prior knowledge of the subject matter. KUNST NU is open to all who want to find out what’s happening in art today.

Price: € 250,- (€ 40,- discount for Club Witte de With members)
