Hanging On: Artistic Research in, on and for the Public Domain

Goodbye symposium for Jeroen Boomgaard

13 October 2022


Jeroen Boomgaard has led LAPS (Research Institute for Art and Public Space) for 19 years of its existence and has established a strong foundation for artistic research at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and Sandberg Instituut. For over 19 years he has facilitated and strengthened countless relationships between (international) educational institutions, artists, researchers, commissioners and developers, operating in the realms of artistic research and art in public space. 

To commemorate Jeroen's achievements, we will say farewell with a symposium on some of the topics he has pursued throughout his career.

Following the symposium, we will celebrate with a drink and music facilitated by Theo Tegelaers. In addition, Anastasija Pandilovska and Jouke Kleerebezem will exhibit work highlighting the findings of their LAPS research.
