In her larger research into smellscapes in galleries, libraries, archives and museums, PhD student Victoria-Anne Michel has been inspired by the Library in recent weeks. The research is part of the Odeuropa project in which a multidisciplinary team is researching Europe's scent heritage. During her Mens in Residence, residency time at the Library, Victoria-Anne Michel took several smell walks. Now, at the end of the residency period, the results are presented in a multi-sensory presentation around the smellscape of our Library.

Mens in Residence

Mens in Residence is a residence stay in the Library where our guest can be inspired by the collection, the building, the locations, the people or other elements of the Library during  a month. Guests are artists, scientists, students, local residents and people. During the residency, we will work towards a final presentation. This presentation can be an activity or event, but also a work of art, article, column or other form of expression.
