In the last decades, Jewish Studies have been subject to fundamental changes. The various subjects in Jewish Studies have drawn from developments in individual disciplines such as transnational history, comparative literature, social sciences, etc., but also from transdisciplinary developments such as the various "turns," specifically linguistic and cultural turns. Entangled histories and interpretations, the perception and conception of spaces and the construction of identity, to name just a few, have shaped the way we look at Jewish and non-Jewish relations today.

The exhibition Pieter Pourbus and the forgotten masters (Groeningemuseum, Bruges, 12.10.2017 – 21.01.2018) focuses on painting in Bruges during the 16th century. For Bruges art this was a stimulating period. Talented painters such as Pieter Pourbus, Marcus Gerards and the Claeissens family were able to reconcile artistic tradition and innovation through devising a personal style. At the same time, they developed dynamic strategies to present answers to the declining economy. Nevertheless, these artists were often “forgotten”.
