(Museum Wormianum and the first half of the early modern collecting culture
My thesis is a literature research on the relationship between the Museum Wormianum of Danish polymath Ole Worm and the collection model of the European Kunst- und Wunderkammern from the second half of the sixteenth to the first half of the seventeenth century.
I also designed an art and cultural module for secondary education based on the results of my research: Musaeum l Wunderkammer: van 1655 tot 2020 (Musaeum l Wunderkammer: from 1655 to 2020).
