The cluster 'Arts & Health' seeks to bring together artists, scientists and humanities scholars of various fields who investigate what a healthy life and disease might mean in today’s world. Rather than focus exclusively on the utilitarian function of interacting with art or partaking in artistic practices for improving people’s health, researchers within this cluster view art and medicine as practices that may intersect in unexpected and meaningful ways with the potential to shed light on how we demarcate and define these fields, and what it means to be a cognitive and embodied human being in the twenty-first century. As the only city in the Netherlands with two academic hospitals and broadest base of art schools in the country, Amsterdam is the ideal location to explore the mutual interconnectedness of health and culture.
