Amsterdam Creative City: Media, Art and Urban Culture
The Application deadline for this Summer School has passed.
Exploring Amsterdam with a critical eye
This intensive summer course uses Amsterdam as a living laboratory to explore the relationship between creativity, cities and globalization. It combines theoretical readings and discussion-based seminars with extensive fieldwork in key locations across the city, ranging from the canal and museum districts in the historic city centre to more experimental or marginal sites like art incubators, squats and urban planning projects in the outskirts. The course looks at the ways in which global practices in art, media, and urban redevelopment are taking shape in a European city that has long functioned as a centre of cultural exchange. In particular, it uses Amsterdam as a stimulating case study to critically examine the notion of the ‘creative city'.
