If then is now - Vera Gulikers

11-07-2020 t/m 24-08-2021

Entree: gratis

Category: Visual arts

Audience: Adults

Vera Gulikers, whose work is in SCHUNCK’s collection, will be painting wall paintings in the school of music from 11 July till 24 August 2020.

To do this she studied the representation of musicians in the history of painting and music. She noticed that female figures nearly always play a secondary role in these depictions, for example as ‘carer’ or ‘enchantress’. In her wall paintings Gulikers chooses to give women in the history of art and music no longer a secondary role, but the leading act in which they are placed centre stage in their own right.
