Sanneke Stigter, assistant professor in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage has been appointed guest lecturer for the postgraduate programme Curatorial Studies at KASK & Conservatory Ghent. Stigter’s appointment paves the way for a more long-term collaboration, specifically between Ghent’s Curatorial Studies programme and the UvA’s Contemporary Art specialisation, which is part of the Master’s in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage.

The Ghent programme in Curatorial Studies is leading in Europe in this discipline and features a broad range of skills related to curating, conservation, exhibition history and theory, and building collections. Stigter will be teaching the module Conservation: Curatorial Aspects. She explains that the practices of conservation and curating converge during the installation of complex works of art. Thus, it is crucial for the conservation and identity of works of art that these two intertwined museum practices share a mutual understanding. The new collaboration between the UvA’s Contemporary Art specialisation and Ghent’s Curatorial Studies programme will allow students to get to know each other’s work and research at an early stage.
