Haarlem/Amsterdam 2016 (Workshop & Keynote Lecture)

Transhistoric exhibitions and collection-arrangements are an important theme at the Frans Hals Museum. Not only do we stage these kinds of presentations, we also consider the topic carefully. Together with M – Museum in Leuven, we initiated the international research project The Transhistorical Museum: Objects, Narratives and Temporalities in 2015. In this context, two conferences, a workshop and a lecture have already taken place.

On 24 and 25 November 2016 the workshop The Transhistorical Museum took place in the Frans Hals Museum, and a Breakfast lecture by Jean-Hubert Martin was held at the ‘Oude Kerk’ in Amsterdam, titled On Transhistorical Curating.
