KIOSK is always considering and bringing to light the most up-to-date and relevant positions in the arts. Together with its partners, KIOSK can place and research current artistic positions in the arts in a global, cultural and socio-economic context.
The activities and operation of KIOSK are developed in an international context. Within that international perspective, a conscious effort is made to devote generous attention to non-Western positions. Space is made available for artistic projects that deal with socio-economic and geopolitical themes.
KIOSK focuses attention on the reflexive, investigative moment in the artistic process, making this visible to the public, an audience that is both broad and specialized, ranging from students at KASK & Conservatory to professionals in the arts from around the world. KIOSK allows this public to become acquainted with innovative artistic tendencies from within Belgium and around the world, and thereby contributes to an international reference framework for KASK & Conservatory and for artists in Belgium.
