The Big Leftist Art Trip: The Hague

3 July 2018

Dear members,

The Arts and Culture Committee is well aware of the tribulations that the right-wing establishment called the Erasmus University has – in all its swiftly exhausted wisdom – decided to exact upon you: exams. To ensure your full convalescence after this trying period, we have organised an artsy-fartsy excursion to The Hague (the residence of another most abominable Tory bastion: the Dutch government) so that you might reconnect to your artistic, quinoa- and avocado-eating self. After all, we of course know that you secretly would have liked to attend the Willem de Kooning Academy. 

To fully restore your inner batteries with green energy, we will visit no less than three musea: oh, the bliss! We will discover the mindboggling geometries and tessellations of M.C. Escher in Escher in het Paleis. After a luncheon at Dudok provided for by the committee, we will get a glimpse of what a Dutch beach looks like when the sun is shining (which of course rarely happens) through the works of Mesdag, one of the principal representatives of the Haagse School (Israëls, Maris, Roelofs, etc.), in the Mesdag Collectie and the Panorama Mesdag.

When: July 3rd

What: Art Trip to the Hague
