The Groeningemuseum and the Public Library of Bruges are in the full process of organising the interdisciplinary exhibition Haute lecture. Colard Mansion and the Dawn of Printing. This collaborative project is scheduled to take place from 1 March 2018 to 3 June 2018 in the Groeningemuseum in Bruges. The exposition focuses on the transition from manuscript to printed book on the basis of the oeuvre of Bruges librarian Colard Mansion (active c. 1457-1484), who produced manuscripts as well as printed books. Because Mansion has been experimenting with the incorporation of engraved illustrations in a printed book, his manuscripts and incunables will be approached from a broader scope of artistic production in Bruges and the Burgundian Netherlands at the time, especially early printmaking.
The Groeningemuseum is looking for an intern for the practical organization of the exhibition. The intern supports the curators of the exhibition in loan administration, editing of the catalogue, collaborating with the architect and developing an educational program.
The Groeningemuseum offers a fulltime internship for a maximum of 60 working days for this project, from February 1st until April 30st 2017. These dates can be adjusted in consultation. Send a motivation letter and cv before 1 November 2016 to firstname.lastname@example.org
