Postgraduate Courses at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts (HISK)

The Higher Institute of Fine Arts (HISK) organises postgraduate education in Flanders in the field of the visual arts. It provides some thirty young artists from Belgium and abroad with a studio of their own, for a duration of two years.

At the HISK the emphasis lies mainly on individual practise, with an international focus. The visiting lecturers are crucial. Artists, curators, critics and theoreticians pay individual studio visits at regular intervals. There are also frequent visits to significant art events, and readings, master classes, seminars and workshops are organised. Thanks to the unique HISK concept the participants are given every opportunity to seriously invest in the critical research of their work, and to situate it within a broader artistic, cultural and societal context.

At the end of the two-year working period, the participant receives the certificate of 'Laureate of the HISK'.
