Andrée van de Kerckhove is an independent researcher, curator and adviser. Her main focus has become the importance of conserving artistic thought processes. In addition, collaboration is a key topic in her work. As a teacher at the ArtEZ Fine Arts department , she emphasizes dialogue and cooperation in art.
Van de Kerckhove studied Fine Art and Conservation in Ghent (Belgium). Her research was accomplished in close alliance with the Ghent Museum. She gained further expertise in this field in the Van Abbe Museum and the Kröller-Muller Museum in the Netherlands. The program ‘Artist Interviews’ (SBMK Amsterdam) inspired her to focus on the importance of preserving the body of thought behind an artwork. That led to exhibitions focused on the development of this aspect in art production. As freelancer, she also initiated an Artist-in-Residence program in Nijmegen, and has been a member of various advisory boards.
