She is a lecturer at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp and artistic coordinator of MaxLab, she is a facilitator of various master projects and master classes and organizes international collaborative projects (Aalto University Helsinki, Ringling college Sarasota Florida, PJWSTK Warsaw, ESAD Porto, ISA Havana).
Beck has contributed to national and international exhibitions and new media concepts, including exhibitions for Europalia, the world expo in Aichi, the book ‘Stadsgedichten’ by Tom Lanoye, some mapping projections for the Belgian Embassy in Cuba, the Museo de Bellas Artes in Havana and recently live performance in Fabrica de Arte Cubano.
