About HISK
HISK offers a post-academic course in audiovisual and visual art. The institute provides 24 young artists from Belgium and abroad each individually with a studio for two years. The emphasis at the institute lies on individual practice. The program 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 crosspollination and dialogue. The diversity of the international visiting lecturers (such as artists, curators, critics, theoreticians) provides a framework within which the candidate laureates learn to examine their own work with a critical eye. The unique concept of HISK allows participants a wide range of opportunities to invest in critical research for their work within a broader artistic, cultural and societal context. At the end of a two years cycle, the candidates receive a Laureate of the Higher Institute for Fine Arts certificate. Since 1997, 196 laureates have graduated from the institute. The majority of them are now pursuing successful professional careers in the international art world.

HISK is recognized by decree of the Flemish Ministry of Education, financed by the Flemish Community and supported by the City of Gent. HISK is sponsored by Vedett and Levis. The work of Sara Bjarland is supported by Mondriaan Fund. The work of Suat Öğüt is supported by SAHA, İstanbul.
