“‘Blessed are the poor in spirit’, but at the age of 48 I’m no longer so blessed with that quality.” David Claerbout

Having trained as a painter at the Nationaal Hoger Instituut voor Schone Kunsten in Antwerp, Belgian artist David Claerbout has become better known for his work with photography and moving images.

Ecce Homo in Antwerp: Empowering Women Through the Work of Male Artists?

Internationally, the art world is well aware that it has a problem with under-representation of female artists, but it seems the jury is still very much out when it comes to addressing that problem. A study by the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin recently looked at this problem in the German context, finding that women comprised 48% of the cultural workforce in Germany, but held only 21% of the top management positions. Most alarmingly, two thirds of those studying arts and humanities subjects at Universities were female. Clearly there is no lack of desire amongst the female population to engage with the art world.
