Jan van Eyck Academie Researcher
Artists, designers and theoreticians are invited to submit research and production proposals to become a researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academie, an institute for research and production in the fields of fine art, design and theory. Every year, 48 international researchers realise their individual or collective projects in the artistic and critical environment of Jan van Eyck. In doing so, they are advised by a team of artists, designers and theoreticians who have won their spurs globally. Artists, designers and theoreticians at the Jan van Eyck Academie work alongside each other and establish cross-disciplinary exchange. The research projects, miscellaneous in nature, make the Jan van Eyck a multi-disciplinary institute.
Researchers, departments and the institute organise various weekly activities, to which special speakers are invited: lectures, seminars, workshops, screenings, exhibitions, discussions. The result is a dynamic and critical exchange between the different agents from within and outside of the Jan van Eyck.
Candidates applying for Fine Art, Design or Theory are asked to propose an individual research project. They can also indicate their interest in participating in one of the projects that are offered by the department of their choice. Research candidates can apply for a one-year or two-year research period starting annually on 1 January. It is also possible to apply to do research for a different period and with a different starting date. The application deadline is 15 April 2010 (rolling admissions).
