Anke Coumans – The Artistic Attitude
|Anke Coumans; Hans van Driel
|Jap Sam Books
Anke Coumans (1962) is Professor Image in Context at the Research Centre Art and Society of the Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen in the Netherlands and affiliated with Minerva Art Academy’s undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Within her professorship, she develops projects – with fellow researchers comprising students, tutors, artists and citizens – in which art practices lead to new ways of shaping the community. Central to her research are questions concerning the added value of artists and designers, the qualities they bring to the table, the shareability of artistic attitudes and how art schools can equip their students to play a catalytic role in social contexts.
