Philippine Hoegen

Research Group: Cultural and Creative Industries

‘Performance is about engaging with versions of the self, stretching the gaze to see what others see when they look at you.’

Philippine Hoegen was a researcher within the Cultural and Creative Industries research group from 2016 until 2020. In that period, she also was a tutor at St. Joost School of Art & Design and the Master Institute of Visual Cultures. Currently Philippine works as an independent artist and researcher.

Philippine Hoegen is a visual artist living in Brussels. Recent activities include a research residency and series of presentations at Kunsthal Gent titled What is Work? (03/2021-04/2022); the publication In these circumstances: On collaboration, performativity, self-organisation and transdisciplinarity in research-based practices (editor: launch May 2022) by/about a.pass Brussels; and the presentation of her book ANOTHER VERSION: Thinking Through Performing (publisher Onomatopee, Eindhoven) at the Beursschouwburg in Brussels (01/2020). She is currently a researcher at the Professorship Performative Creative Processes, HKU, Utrecht, and Caradt, Avans University, Breda, with the project Performing Workingarrow. Working mostly with performance, Hoegen explores the ways in which we continuously create versions of ourselves and what their existence means for our understanding of ‘self’.

She works in an international environment and publishes and teaches in Dutch and English.

Performing Working

“I’m still me! Even if I can no longer perform the job,” said a former doctor who is now unable to work because of chronic illness. “But when I open my wardrobe, I still see, and can step into, all the roles I played in my work”.

Research Group: Cultural and Creative Industries

The research group Cultural and Creative Industries investigates the role of artists and designers as creative innovators and drivers of social and economic change. Affiliated researchers analyse the cultural and creative industries from a critical point of view and examine the conditions under which timely forms of aesthetic expression and social connectedness can actually take place within the precarious reality of this field. What economic models are required by artists and designers to create a meaningful practice within the aesthetic, social, and economic intentions of the cultural and creative industries? What skills sets are required for those artists and designers who don’t just want to follow movements, but actually shape novel social and economic models of the future?
