Study the art of the present

Arts & Culture: Contemporary Art History

In selecting the specialization Contemporary Art History, you devote your attention to what is at stake now – to artworks that take on the challenges of the globalized information society, and of living in the Anthropocene.

You do so from a firm basis in an established discipline that has much to offer but also continuously adapts in keeping up with the art of the present.

Contemporary Art History is one of the tracks of the master's programme in Arts & Culture. Find more information about the other tracks here.

This specialization is unique in the Netherlands in allowing students to focus on the fascinating field of contemporary art – from installation art to artistic research, from photography to digital art, performance art, or artistic activism.

The Netherlands, and Amsterdam especially, is pioneering in contemporary art. Next to museums and exhibitions, you can profit from archives and digital collections, and attend festivals to experience site-specific, performative, and time-based projects first-hand.
