Drempelvrees is een initiatief van Rogier Brom.
Als docent en onderzoeker in de kunstgeschiedenis werk ik bij verschillende instellingen. Mijn werkzaamheden lopen uiteen van het vormgeven en uitvoeren van lezingen en cursussen tot het doen van onderzoek en het publiceren en presenteren hiervan. Daarnaast verricht ik al langere tijd meerdere organisatorische en PR-gerelateerde werkzaamheden bij culturele instellingen.
CV Rogier Brom
Researcher and project coordinator at Boekman Foundation (March 2017 – present)
The Boekman Foundation collects and disseminates knowledge and information about the arts and culture in both policy and practice. It stimulates research and the development of opinion on the production, distribution and take-up of the arts and on national and international policy on the arts and culture.
Co-writer and -editor of Being Public. How Art Creates the Public (Valiz, 2017)
Being Public investigates, from different perspectives, the notion of ‘public’. ‘Public’ is one of the most issued categories in current debates on culture, yet the notion itself remains largely un-reflected. The meaning of both ‘art publics’ and ‘public space’ have become complex in a time where boundaries between public and private are shifting, and where ‘the public’ actually comprises different groups of changing composition and identity. What does it mean to be public today? And what is the role of art in constituting both ‘public space’ as well as ‘a public’?
Researcher project Jaap van der Meij (April 2016 – March 2017)
Tresoar, Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam, Minerva Academy Groningen, RCE
This project sets out to approach art in public space from a variety of perspectives, headed by Tresoar, a heritage foundation in the Friesland province. In the part of the project I’m involved with, researchers from the Rietveld Academy, Minerva Academy and the RCE (the state’s Cultural Heritage foundation) attempt to develop meaningful methods for estimating the value of art works in public space.

LAPS stimulates research and theoretical reflection on the role of art and design in the public domain. The Lectoraat is the result of a partnership between the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (GRA), the Sandberg Instituut (SI), the Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA), Foundation for Art in Public Domain (SKOR) and the Virtueel Museum Zuidas (VMZ).
