Hoeven, Rutger van der

Rutger van der Hoeven, born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in 1974. M.A. from the University of Amsterdam. Journalist at De Groene Amsterdammer and Lecturer at Utrecht University.

Journalist-in-Residence (1 September 2012 – 31 January 2013)


During my stay at NIAS, I was able to write over 60.000 words of a book manuscript on photography, photojournalism and the globalisation of images. About a quarter of this text was intended to feature as well in my forthcoming dissertation, and was edited at NIAS. I also designed a global survey on photography recognition, and ran a test survey in which hundreds of Dutch university students took part. Throughout my stay at NIAS, I benefited from the atmosphere, the opportunity for long-term concentration, the library and other support services, and the interaction, ideas and input of the others fellows.
