From the shadows

02 July 2014

The University of Groningen owns a great deal of art. Wherever you are in the University buildings, whichever office you enter, on every landing and in every courtyard, you will come across art. Many of these works of art are now on show in the University Museum. It is beautiful, special or simply interesting art that has come 'From the shadows'.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
