Lecture (3/13) - Hollandse Meesters (Dutch Masters) is a series in which renowned filmmakers make a portrait of important contemporary artists in a fifteen minute documentary. The music for these short documentaries is made by renowned composers. To this day, a hundred portraits have been made. The documentaries are shown by AVRO and local broadcasters. At Studium Generale we will present a selection of these documentaries, curated and hosted by Michiel van Nieuwkerk, initiator and producer of Hollandse Meesters.
