On 20 February at 16:00 we are organizing a tour to Mediville, the medical workspace of general practitioner Jeu van Sint Fiet.
Jeu van Sint Fiet is a general practitioner whose entire office has been designed by artist Joep van Lieshout. Van Sint Fiet is an art collector, and part of his collection is on view at his office. He feels that the art works contribute to the healing process of his patients as well as improve his communication with them.
Limited availability. If you would like to join the tour, please register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Language of the tour: Dutch
Project Art & Medicine
Based on their mutual curiosity and interest in the human and human body, both art and medicine once held a very strong bond. With many societal and technological changes and developments, these two worlds began opposing each other, with the discipline of medicine representing objectivity, and the art world symbolizing subjectivity. Recently, however, we have been able to see these two domains moving towards each other with a new fascination for one another. In a series of Open Courses, the Jan van Eyck Academie zooms in on what happens when these two domains meet. Together with the public and by stimulating a dialogue between the arts and medicine, we wish to discover what the added value of this connection could be.
The Tour is the first event in this series. More information about the second event can be found here.
Open Courses: Art & Medicine is an initiative of the Hubert van Eyck Academie (institute for Research & Education of the Jan van Eyck Academie)
