Curatorial Studies


Curatorial Studies is an intensive one-year postgraduate programme covering key positions, legacies, ideas, and debates important to the curatorial. By drawing on the expertise of a broad network of cultural practitioners and institutions, the course aims to facilitate an environment in which a multiplicity of perspectives and critical discourses can thrive. Established in 1999, the programme is the result of a collaboration between KASK & Conservatorium/ School of Arts of HOGENT and Howest, Ghent University, S.M.A.K. – the contemporary art museum in Ghent, and Kunsthal Gent.


Curatorial Studies stands in solidarity with Palestine, demanding an end to the displacement and violence resulting from Israeli settler colonialism and apartheid. The recent events in Gaza have deeply saddened us, as they have led to a substantial loss of life and unimaginable suffering for the affected families and their loved ones. Our thoughts are with the countless victims and their families.
We call upon the European Union and the Belgian Government to denounce the illegal blockade of Gaza and stop the killings.
