Royal visits to TU/e
On 19 September 1957 the Dutch royal couple, H.M. Queen Juliana and H.R.H. Prince Bernhard, visited Eindhoven for the official opening of Eindhoven University of Technology. By signing the charter of foundation the queen officially confirmed the establishment of the new university a year earlier. During the following decades members of the royal house visited TU/e regularly. For example to mark foundation days or the opening of new buildings. Also when the city of Eindhoven as a whole was the destination of royal visitors, TU/e contributed to giving them a worthy reception. This could be in the form of presenting important research results or remarkable innovations. These visits were laid down in an extensive photographic record. This selection shows part of all those images. Most of them are on display also in an exhibition in the university library in spring and summer of 2022.
On the threshold of the 21st Century; photography by Bram Saeys
During the nineteen nineties and around the turn of the century photographer Bram Saeys fulfilled many assignments from Cursor, the TU/e university news journal. In early 2021 he transferred the extensive image archive that resulted from this work to TU/e Data Management and Library. Digitized files from this largely still analog record will in time be added to TU/e in the Picture. Presented in this special is a first selection.
New Films in TU/e in the Picture
Some interesting film material can now be seen in TU/e in the Picture about life and work of the makers of some top items in the TU/e art collection. These artists are Gerrit van Bakel, Panamarenko and Shinkichi Tajiri. Van Bakel and Panamarenko are respectively the creators of the Tarim Machine and the Umbilly I 'aeroplane'. Seed No.4, a sculpture located between buildings Vertigo and the 'Zwarte Doos', is a work by Tajiri.
