CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR THE HISK PROGRAMME 2016 & 2017
Deadline submission: June 15, 2015
Information and conditions: www.hisk.edu
The HISK (Hoger Instituut voor Schone Kunsten / Higher Institute for Fine Arts) offers a two-year post academic course in visual and audio-visual art. The institute provides 26 young artists from Belgium and abroad with a work space of their own. 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 candidate laureate group makes for cross-pollination and dialogue. The diversity of the international visiting lecturers (artists, curators, critics, theoreticians...) provides a framework within which the candidate laureates learn to view their own work with a critical eye. The unique HISK concept allows participants every opportunity to invest in critical research for their work within a broader artistic, cultural and societal context. At the end of the two years, the artist receives a 'Laureate of the Higher Institute for Fine Arts' certificate. Since 1997, 217 laureates have graduated from the institute. The majority of them are now pursuing successful professional careers in the international art world.
The HISK is officially recognized as a higher educational institute and is financed by the Flemish Community (the Ministry of Education) and supported by the City of Gent.
