Starting today at the Vrije Academie in Den Haag a 4-lesson course on the meaning of art in the XXI century.
Topic of today: the importance of the concept of beauty, not just in art but in the wider cultural context of society. Upcoming topics of the following weeks: the philosophy of art and the music as artistic expression.
It starts at 14.00 and it's in Dutch: a good chance to practice your Nederlands.
On a more general scale, celestial I'd dare say, today it's the last chance to get a good view of Mercury crossing our winter sky. Apparently, it's one of the main stargazing events of this year and we are lucky enough to have a clear sky, for a change.
