|Research Lab: Loneliness and the City
15-23 February 2017 | Gallery KABK
In cooperation with the National Council for Health and Society (Raad voor Volksgezondheid en Samenleving, RVS) students from diverse departments of the Royal Academy of Art The Hague investigate 'loneliness' within the Dutch urban context during a Research Lab called 'Loneliness and the City'.
What does it mean to be lonely?
How do people react on loneliness?
Is loneliness increasing in contemporary society?
Within their research, students explore the plurality of loneliness. The results of the project are presented in an exhibition, opening on the 14th of February 2017. On the same day RVS launches a publication on loneliness, entitled‘Wat ik met Kerst mis'.
The exhibition will be on view in the Gallery of the Royal Academy of Art The Hague from the 15th until the 23rd of February.

In order to explore and deepen the research aspects of the programme and the students’ development in artistic research, we organise a number of ‘research labs'. These labs are experimental and, on the whole, research-based interdisciplinary working groups, offered by one or more departments and/or research domains. In the labs, the research aspects of the programmes are explored and deepened by encouraging students to work together on particular themes with students and teachers from other disciplines.
The Research Labs as part of the Individual Study Track plan, an excellent opportunity offered to students at the Royal Academy of Art The Hague in order to customise their studies.
