KNIR Research Dialogues

In the spring of 2021, we started with the KNIR Research Dialogues. This is a series of lectures during which international scientists present remarkable results of recent research. Their research is in line with the core themes of the research at the KNIR.
The KNIR Research Dialogues take place once a month on Wednesdays between 17:00 and 18:00. Presently we are welcoming guest speakers again live at the KNIR and you are invited to join us at the Institute or via Zoom.

KAD “On Observing Plants and Exploring Imagination in Art and Science: De Onkruidenier and Marjo Postma on their work in Rome”

Artists and scientists have always found each other in the exploration and investigation of the natural world. The activities of Renaissance artists were sometimes even indistinguishable of those of naturalists. For contemporary Dutch artists Jonmar van Vlijmen, Rosanne van Wijk, Ronald de Boer – who together form the collective de Onkruidenier – and Marjo Postma, the study of and experimentation with nature remain fundamental parts of their work. In this first KNIR Art Dialogue, de Onkruidenier and Postma, who are current and past KNIR Artists in Residence, respectively, will reflect on their own and each other’s work, and discuss themes related to the art-science relationship with the audience.
