Meral Maas – webdesign

Meral Maas (1995) is a fourth year Art History student at the University of Utrecht. With a big heart for Utrecht, modern art and everything related to food (see Keukenmuze). Her broad interests in varied subjects makes for an open and curious attitude towards new ways of thinking and experiences. That makes the minor Journalistiek en Kritiek (UvA) a right fit for her. FAAM matches Meral’s interests as well because of the active collaboration and involvement between Art History students and HKU students.

Rosalie Woudman – Social Media

Rosalie Woudman – Social Media

Rosalie Woudman (1999) studied Art History at the University of Utrecht in the college year of 2018-2019, but decided to quit, because she did not only want to be busy with analysing art, but also wanted to put more energie in making art. This, for her, was the main reason to start studying Fine Arts and design in Education at the HKU. A happy decision so far. The connection between making and researching art is very important to her as well as interests her greatly. As a board member of FAAM, she hopes to actively contribute to the connection between practice and theory (University and HBO). Besides this she enjoys festivals, good music, long sunny (summer)days, animals and experimenting with vegetarian cooking. When life gets her down she can always be cheered up by a glass of white, red or rose wine.

Nina Nijenhuis – Secretary

Nina Nijenhuis (1994) finished her bachelor of Art History at the University of Utrecht and the master Art, Culture and Politics at the University of Amsterdam. Her love for art is immense, which is why she loves to visit interesting exhibitions. The (social) value of art is an important theme for Nina, also in her work. If Nina is not working or watching art, she enjoys doing yoga, cooking or reading books. Besides this she is a secretive (not so secretive) fervent collector, which makes her room a place in which there is always something new to discover.

Annette Knol – Chairman

Annette Knol – Chairman

Annette Knol (1994) studied Art History at Utrecht University, specializing in modern and contemporary art and architecture. She is very interested in making connections between different parties and disciplines within the art world. Because of that, she obtained her Master’s degree in Book Studies at the University of Amsterdam, focusing on the connection between word and image. Why do painters sometimes start writing and why do so many writers choose fine art as a subject for their texts? What influence has an illustrator on a written text? It is this exciting exchange between disciplines which Annette is looking for by FAAM Utrecht. Stepping outside your comfortable room, out into someone else’s world: that always works refreshing!
