    Personal information

    Caro Verbeek is an embedded researcher of olfactory heritage at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Rijksmuseum and International Flavours & Fragrances. Trained as an art historian she specialises in sensory art and education in museums, art academies and universities. She has 10+ years of experience curating exhibitions and conserving collections (prints, drawings and scents).

    Verbeek creates olfactory tours and interventions for museums (Rijksmuseum, Van Abbemuseum, Bijbels Museum, Amsterdam Museum) and is determined to alter the way we think about and document ephemeral history and to create a language and sensory skills to do so.

    Her PhD project "In Search of Lost Scents - Reconstructing the Aromatic Heritage of the Avant-garde' was widely discussed in (international) media during the exhibition "Aromatic Art (Re-)constructed" dd. 23.02.2017 - 23.05.2017 where people were able to smell the Battle of Waterloo, an 18th century canal house, medieval prayer nuts (all created by IFF), and Futurist and Surrealist olfactory works of art.

     

    She also teaches the course 'The Other Senses'at the Royal Academy of Arts The Hague and is the curator in chief of the olfactory culture program 'Odorama' at Mediamatic Amsterdam.

    Finally she is an advisor for immaterial heritage projects at Mondriaan Fonds.
