QKunst was formed in 2004 by art historian Véronique Baar. She brings together a team of independent professionals. Together we make it our mission to make room for art in your organisation or in public space. We work independently, on project- or secondment-basis and always offer tailored advice and work.


The core of our team consists of art professionals experienced in collection management and/or commissioned art. We also house expertise concerning building, strategic and financial issues, communication and photography. We work together with professional art movers, art handlers, restorers, frame-makers, appraisers and auction houses.
