The 'life' of Dutch blue paper can be seen as a journey through the Early Modern world, starting in the West Indies, passing through the Amsterdam Rasphuis and paper mills in the Zaanstreek, and finally, landing in the hands of high-brow artists. In her lecture and pop-up exhibition, Judith Noorman, director of ACSEM, rethinks how to study and present history in an inclusive manner.

Amsterdam Centre for Studies in Early Modernity (ACSEM)

ACSEM is formerly knows as Amsterdam Centre for the Study of the Golden Age. The new name comes with a new annual program - the Object Quolloquia Series. The series has the overarching theme: Exploring the World through the Material Turn. All speakers have taken up the challenge of creating a coherent, interdisciplinary program. Thanks to them, it promises to be a year of in-depth discussion and new acquaintances. The full annual program can be found below. 

The Object Quolloquia Series

The Object Colloquia Series explores the world through the material turn. Each interdisciplinary duo of speakers takes one object or product as a point of departure to study and discuss various aspects of Early Modern art, culture, and history. These series are organized by the Amsterdam Centre for Studies in Early Modernity (ACSEM).
