In November 2019, Z33 will open a completely renovated exhibition building where the existing building will be renovated and expanded with a new exhibition wing designed by the Italian architect Francesca Torzo. The design completes the beguinage site where, in the coming years, the Master programmes and an international research institute of the Architecture faculty of Hasselt University will also move in, creating a very interesting dynamic at the site around Z33.

The realization of this new building marks both the capstone of an intense, successful pioneering phase, led by artistic director Jan Boelen, and the start of a whole new phase with great ambitions in which the acquired position must be strengthened and serve as a steppingstone for recognition as a Flemish Art Institute. From Hasselt and Genk, Z33 wants to be the international reference point for all of Flanders and the connector for contemporary art, design and architecture in the coming years.

The Board is looking for an artistic director who can write this new and innovative chapter together with a driven team of 25 employees. View the document here.

You must send your application with CV and a text essay with a vision about the future role of Z33 as an arts center for Contemporary Art, Design and Architecture by Friday, September 13, 2019 at the latest to the attention of the Chairman of the non-profit association Gilbert Van Baelen via susy.fagard [​at​]

A first selection will be made based on the submitted applications. Selected candidates will be invited to present themselves and their vision for the future to a selection committee.

Questions about the position and the procedure can be asked via the same e-mail address.
