Michel van der Aa has been selected to be an inaugural member of a prestigious new Academy of Arts in the Netherlands.

A new initiative supported by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, the Academy forms part of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, and has been established to study the relationship between science and art, and to act as an independent sounding board for politicians and policy-makers.

Van der Aa will be part of a board made up of nineteen of the Netherlands’ leading artists, musicans and writers, including the photographer and film-maker Anton Corbijn, the architect Francine Houben and the violinist Janine Jansen.
