Two exhibitions about medicine and art at UNS 50

Two exhibitions about medicine and art at UNS 50

Once, art had a strong bond with medical science because an artist was able to portray the human body as true to nature. Doctors, scientists and artists learned from each other. Over the centuries the focus has been reduced to everyone’s own domain. Around the lecture hall (blauwe zaal) at the UNS 50 two exhibitions have been set up that bring these two worlds closer together:

La linea della bellezza
Second-year medical students could follow the elective course 'Does experience art make you a better doctor' for the first time in 2017. Mieke Derickx, initiator of the elective and curator of the Art and Heritage Committee of the University of Maastricht, has set up an exhibition including a photo report of art photographer Romy Finke, field notes and drawings of the students. The elective course is again offered to second-year students this year (in period 6.)


A branch of learning; body knowledge
This exhibition presents a selection of works of art from the permanent collection of Maastricht University. With these works of art, ways of looking at people and the human body are highlighted. The works of art shown challenge you as a student or scientist once again to tread in the steps of an artist. This is also a branch of learning. At the same time, the works of art emphasize topics such as perception, styles of art, technology and use of materials.


You can visit both exhibitions at level 0, Universiteitsingel 50.
