Extra Academy organizes an open program of lectures, performances, workshops and screenings around artistic practice, reflection and research, curated by Nico Dockx and Steve Van den Bosch. [language: English]
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 an alliance between the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, Sint Lucas School of Arts and Het Bos, curated by artists Nico Dockx and Steve Van den Bosch.
