In the runup to the eleventh open-air exhibition Beelden op de Berg in summer 2018, three artists will be setting to work on Wageningen campus. This is clear from the prospectus which the foundation organizing the exhibition presented to executive board chair Louise Fresco this week, describing an extensive art and education programme on campus prior to the exhibition.

The collaboration between Beelden op de Berg and Wageningen University & Research is in honour of the 100th anniversary of higher education in Wageningen. The theme of the exhibition in Belmonte Arboretum – ‘for ever young’ – fits the bill precisely.
Of the 11 artists who will be exhibiting in the arboretum, three will be making their works on campus. Over a period of two months they will be linking their artistic research with scientific research. The results will be exhibited as they go along.
Studium General will be devoting five sessions to Beelden op de Berg, with lectures, scientific or otherwise, performances, music and film.
The on-campus activities will include an educational programme for children from primary and secondary schools.
