Research Station

The place where research is made visible

The Research Station is the place within the Willem de Kooning Academy where research activities, education, sources, students, teachers, researchers, and other enthusiasts meet. It is a node within a vibrant research culture that stretches throughout the WdKA and the Piet Zwart Institute, both offline and online. The Circle of Doing Research structures our activities and education.

We shape, connect, and make visible research and research education through:

  • station skills, consultations, and trainings for students and tutors;
  • the collection of the media library and online sources;
  • research of research in arts and design; what it is, does, and can be, resulting in publications and other forms of making public;
  • an events programme;
  • practical and strategic support in all research-related matters.
