Art at the IAS

At the IAS, we exhibit artwork of UvA researchers. Are you creative in science and arts? Have you always wanted to publicly display your art? Then this is your chance!

Pieter Adriaans

Personal website

Over the years Pieter Adriaans has built up an impressive unusually broad oeuvre that varies from paintings and sculptures to installations, books, papers and musical compositions. This achievement is remarkable given the fact that Adriaans also has a masters in philosophy, a PhD in theoretical computer science and has founded a very successful computer company.

Adriaans: "I see no fundamental difference between my work as a philosopher, as a scientist or as an artist. It all has to do with creating new insights and understanding yourself and the world around you."

Sander Bais

Emeritus professor of Theoretical Physics at the UvA.
