Lieven Gevaert Centre

The Lieven Gevaert Research Centre for Photography, Art and Visual Culture was founded by Jan Baetens and Hilde Van Gelder in 2004. In 2008, Alexander Streitberger and Hilde Van Gelder became its directors. Since then, the LGC is a joint collaboration between KU Leuven and UCLouvain. The centre is based both in the Faculty of Arts at KU Leuven and in the Institute of Research in Culture (INCAL) at UCLouvain. Prominent international senior and junior fellows are affiliated to our centre. We also closely collaborate with the research entities deep histories fragile memories (directed by Wendy Morris and Laurens Dhaenens), Photography Expanded (directed by Liesbeth Decan) and Exhibition Culture: Dialogues in the Making (directed by Nicola Setari) at LUCA School of arts. For more topical information about the projects of our fellows, check out our blog page.
