Angelique Campens, teacher

Angelique Campens is an independent art historian, writer, educator, and curator whose work focuses on interactions between sculpture and architecture in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, the integration of sculpture in public spaces, and sculptural concrete (béton brut). Born in Belgium, she has worked for international museums and public art spaces including the Whitney Museum, Kulturprojekte Berlin, Fondazione Sandretto, Bozar, and Wiels. She has written for various catalogues and magazines including Taschen’s Art Now Vol. 4, Abitare, Domus, Sculpture Journal, and Aspect. In 2007-2008, she was a Curatorial Fellow at the International Study Program (ISP) at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.

In 2010, she published her first monograph on the architecture of the Belgian Modernist Juliaan Lampens. She teaches at KASK & Conservatorium and recently published a monograph on the artist and architect Jacques Moeschal (1913-2004), and curated the accompanying project at Bozar Brussels. In 2022, she obtained her PhD in art history from Ghent University, where she wrote about the legacy of André Bloc, who proved to be a key figure in a network of architects, artists, critics, and theorists at the center of the architecture-sculpture debate
