About the speaker

Carel Huydecoper talks about art. He studied Art History and Iconology in Utrecht and after working for several museums started his own company: Lokroep Art.

He offers a different perspective on the history we already know. He combines his knowledge with wit and humour and entertains his audiences with stories, often during historically themed dinners his company organises.

The theme this month is time so he will talk about historical time. How time has been viewed throughout the ages. Oddly enough, time has not been a constant through history. In its own peculiar way, time is relative. Calendars have changed but so has our understanding of time - and all of this is reflected in art.

Carel is also the historian and guide of the Paushuize and it’s collection here in Utrecht.
