Angelique Campens

Angelique Campens is an independent art historian, writer, educator and curator whose work focuses on interactions between sculpture and architecture in the twentieth and twenty-first century, the integration of sculpture in public space, and sculptural concrete (béton brut). Born in Belgium, she has worked for international museums and public art spaces including the Whitney Museum, Kulturprojekte Berlin, Fondazione Sandretto, Bozar and Wiels. She has written for various catalogue and magazines including Taschen’s Art Now Vol. 4, Abitare, Domus, Sculpture Journal and Aspect. In 2007-2008, she was a Curatorial Fellow at the International Study Program (ISP) at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. In 2010 she published her first monograph about the architecture of the Belgian Modernist Juliaan Lampens. She teaches at KASK Ghent and recently published a monograph on the artist and architect Jacques Moeschal (1913-2004) and curated the accompanying project at Bozar Brussels. 

In 2022 she obtained her PhD in art history from Ghent University, where she wrote about the legacy of André Bloc, who proved to be the central figure of a global network of architects, artists, critics and theorists prominent within the architecture-sculpture debate.
