Hester Aardse

Hester Aardse is an art historian specialised in the redevelopment of industrial sites and urban planning. Together with Astrid Alben (née van Baalen), she founded the arts and science initiative PARS at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten from 2006-2008. PARS invites artists and scientists to share their most beautiful and mind-boggling thoughts and research around particular topics. These got published in the "Findings on.." publication series and were shared at events that are a mixture of art, theatre and scientific experiments.
