Soup Sessions are monthly gatherings for, by and between researchers of the Academy

Every session is hosted by one of our research groups. One or more researchers enter into dialogue about each others’ practice, to generate exchange and to learn from each other, while sharing insights and involving peers into an interactive talk.

Due to the current corona measurements, the Soup Sessions are temporarily without soup.
