Staircase is a platform that supports
artists in Belgium, founded in 2018 by Enea Derboven. She works as an
independent curator with lesser known, passionate artists to connect with other
artists and organizations. In addition, exhibitions are organized at unique
locations, in collaboration with Urban Trend Consultant MADE Estate and Mokke bier brewery. They make it possible for Staircase to plan events. This creates the opportunity to network,
exhibit own work for an interested audience and build name recognition.
The name Staircase is a reference to Enea's own experience in Brooklyn, New
York. During this trip she discovered that artists can come together in a
natural way and philosophize about life and work. They literally do this by
meeting each other on a staircase in one of the artistic districts, without any
obligation. With Staircase, Enea also
wants to take this a step further by offering not only the stairs where
encounters can arise, but also by providing artists support
at every step they take.
