Jan van Eyck Academie Calls for Applications
The Jan van Eyck Academie has positions available in the Fine Art and Design Departments for the next academic year, starting on 1 January 2011. Artists are invited to submit proposals for individual research projects, while designers can apply for one of the projects formulated by the department.
The Fine Art Department offers a unique space for experimentation, production, reflection and debate. Researchers conduct their artistic research in an environment that encourages questioning of the assumptions, forms, meanings and contexts that are tied to the practice of making art today. The Fine Art Department welcomes artists, individuals and groups, without stipulating conditions regarding form, content and media.
Artistic practice is supported by a programme of events and sustained conversations organised by the (advising) researchers. The academy offers expertise in all media and production areas, in-house or in cooperation with partner organisations, and encourages publishing through the Jan van Eyck publication series.
Application deadline is 1 October 2010.
