06/11/2013 - On the occasion of the 350th birthday of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, a two-day symposium is being organised to reflect on the past, present, and future as well as the facts and myths of post- secondary art teaching. Artists and academics discuss, reflect on, and debate a variety of topics. Not so much a traditional academic symposium, but more a happening that offers scope for reflection, artistic statements, public debate, discussion, and performance. On Thursday November 7th the official language will be Dutch, on Friday November 8th all lectures and debates will be in English
