CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR THE HISK PROGRAMME 2018 & 2019

HISK - Hoger Instituut voor Schone Kunsten / Higher Institute for Fine Arts Advanced Studies & Practice-based Research in Audiovisual and Visual Arts

The HISK offers a post-academic course in audiovisual and visual art. The institute provides young artists from Belgium and abroad with a work space of their own for a duration of two years.

The emphasis at the institute lies on individual practice. The programme aims to achieve a practical balance between study in the studio, discussions with visiting lecturers, workshops, reading groups, field trips and public presentations. The international and culturally diverse composition of the group of participating artists stimulates cross-pollination and dialogue. The diversity of the international visiting lecturers (artists, curators, critics, theoreticians...) provides a framework in which the participating artists learn to adopt a critical approach towards their own work.

The unique HISK concept allows participants every opportunity to invest in critical researchfor their work within broader artistic, cultural and societal contexts. At the end of the two years, the participating artists receive a certificate as a 'Laureate of the Higher Institute for Fine Arts'. 243 laureates have graduated from the institute since 1997. The majority of them are now pursuing successful professional careers in the international art world.

The HISK is recognized by decree of the Flemish Ministry of Education, financed by the Flemish Community and supported by the city of Gent.

Deadline submission: June 20, 2017 (postmark & online submission)
