The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

New exhibition: Wilhelm Freddie in Copenhagen

If you find yourself in the area, you might like to check out 'Wilhelm Freddie: Stick the Fork in Your Eye!' at the Statens Museum fur Kunst in Copenhagen.  Our very own Mette Houlberg Rung took some time off from her PhD to work on the exhibition which takes a comprehensive view of the work of Danish radical artist Wilhelm Freddie 1909-1995).

For more information about the exhibition click here (in Danish) or here (in English).
