HISK offers a postacademic course in audiovisual and visual art. The institute provides young artists from Belgium and abroad with a studio of their own for two years.
Artists who have already obtained a Masters degree in Fine Art or an equivalent qualification are eligible to apply to the HISK. Exceptions can be made for applicants who do not have a Master degree but whose artistic trajectory evidences a high level of development, motivation and artistic affinity. The conceptual and visual qualities of the works submitted by the applicants are considered more important than their style, utilised material or technique.
Participants are expected to show a strong commitment to conducting critical research within their respective fields of interest. At the same time, they should aim to situate their practice within a broader social and cultural context. Candidates are also expected to contribute in or to the activities of the HISK as a whole. This interaction is seen as an important forum of exchange and development.
The postgraduate educational programme of the HISK is a two-year, full-time programme, which starts on January 1, 2017 and ends on December 31, 2018.
