Marieke Schoenmakers, the director of the Royal Academy of Visual Arts (KABK), is resigning after a critical report on the corporate culture at the Hague school.
The way of leadership of Schoenmakers, who has been director since 2014, is described as distant in the report of the consultancy firm Bezemer & Schubad, writes NRC.
The agency questioned 168 people for the report. The respondents state, among other things, that under the leadership of Schoenmakers, there was “too little connection in vision, in interaction with each other, in ideas about good education, didactic approach, in professionalism and in cooperation”.
The cause of the investigation was an article in NRC from late last year about a former student of the KABK who is accused by several men and women of rape and sexual assault. Those events are briefly mentioned in the report.
