Extra Academy organizes an open program of lectures, performances, workshops and screenings around artistic practice, reflection and research.
Extra Academy is an alliance between the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, Sint Lucas School of Arts and Het Bos, and is curated by Nico Dockx (Academy), Teun Verbruggen (Conservatoire) and Helen Mauli Dowling (Sint Lucas).
The platform that they offer, is one where participants become acquainted with practices and visions that are hardly or not at all addressed in the media or art education. In this way they aspire to create a much broader picture of the stratification and rich complexity of what contemporary artistic practice can mean in dialogue with, among other things, art-historical, socio-political, philosophical and economic implications.
Extra Academy is being held at Het Bos, Ankerrui 5-7, 2000 Antwerpen.
More than 70 Extra Academies have already taken place, since 2011 at Kunsthal Extra City and since 2018 at Het Bos.
