Boomgaard also directs the research group Art & Public Space (Lectoraat Kunst en Publieke Ruimte), a partnership between the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, the Sandberg Instituut, the Universiteit van Amsterdam, and the Virtueel Museum Zuidas (or VMZ), which stimulates research and theoretical reflection on the role of art and design in the public domain.

In 2008 he edited a collection of essays on art in public space, High Rise - Common Ground, Art and the Amsterdam Zuidas Area.
