Advanced Studies & Practice-based Research in Audiovisual and Visual Arts
The HISK is a post-graduate institute that combines art residency and individualized support with thorough advanced studies in the arts. The HISK provides young artists from Belgium and abroad with a workspace and pedagogical guidance for a duration of two years. The strength of the HISK is its unique model of cross-fertilisation of visiting lectureships, studio visits, exhibitions, Open Studios, seminars, master classes, public lectures, technical workshops, study trips within Belgium and abroad, etc. that are devised to respond to the artists’ needs. The HISK provides a safe haven for experiment and research with a flexible structure. 

The HISK programme 2021 & 2022 starts on January 1, 2021 and ends on December 31, 2022.

Visual artists from all countries working with any medium are welcome to apply for the programme. Artist duos are accepted. 

Artists who have already obtained a Master in Fine Arts or an equivalent qualification are eligible to apply to the HISK. Exceptions can be made for applicants who do not have a master’s degree but whose artistic trajectory evidences a high level of development, motivation and artistic affinity. 

Applicants are expected to show a strong commitment to conducting critical research within their respective fields of interest. 

Artists who are interested in theory, scientific research and in future development of a PhD in the arts are also welcome to apply.

The selected artists are expected to fully commit to the programme, be present and participate in the activities offered by the HISK. This interaction is seen as an important forum of exchange and development. 

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