This Fall Willem de Kooning Academy hosts 39 foreign students from art schools across the globe – partners in WdKA's extensive international network.

These students, now here for an exchange projects, were officially welcomed on September 11, 2007.

We interviewed two of them: Cédric Paquotte from Geneva/Switzerland, and Jordi Ferrando from Barcelona/Spain.

Many of the participants of the MA courses at WdKA's Piet Zwart Institute come from abroad. This goes as well for art historian Vanessa Ohlraun from Berlin/Germany: as of September 1, 2007 she is the new 'course director' of PZI's MA Fine Art.
