A selection of 25 years of HISK

Fiat Lux takes a look at the Enlightenment of which the Vrije Universiteit Brussel is a child. Willem Elias selected 28 alumni of the Higher Institute of Fine Arts (HISK) whom he got to know as chairman and continued to meet afterwards. The work they present approaches “Enlightenment” in the broadest sense of the term. From an ode to free thought to questioning rational thinking: the artworks offer insight into the dialectic between darkness and enlightenment. “Du choc des idées jaillit la lumière!” Fiat Lux creates a context for aesthetic wonder and stimulates the critical mind.
