Visual Literacy

This line of research traces the development, function and importance of visual literacy. The emphasis is on its didactic and pedagogical aspects and its connection with other forms of literacy (literary, media, social). This knowledge is acquired through cross-disciplinary (inter)national projects and collaborations.

The focus on visual literary fits in with a broader, active promotion of the discipline of drawing and illustration through projects such as 'De Prentfabriek', the travelling exhibition 'Houtsnede' (Woodcut) (in collaboration with Saskia de Bodt), and collaborative projects with the Accademia di Belli Arti Bologna and the Maastricht Academy of Art, Design and Technology.
