Fine Art Research Projects

Call for Applications

The Jan van Eyck Academie in the Netherlands, an institute for research and production in the fields of fine art, design and theory, offers artists, designers and theorists time and space to do research and realize productions, either about topics of their own choosing or as part of a project formulated by the institute itself. Every year, 48 international researchers realize their individual or collective projects in the artistic and critical environment of the Jan van Eyck Academie. In doing so, they are advised by a team of artists, designers and theorists who have gained their reputation by working globally.

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 limitations regarding form, content and media. Artists are invited to submit proposals for research projects for the coming year in the Fine Art Department of the Jan van Eyck Academie. Deadline for submissions is 1 October 2011.
