ENSBA Postgraduate Art Programme 2015-2016

The Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Lyon (ENSBA) offers a one-year postgraduate programme for five international artists who have acquired a Master's degree (or DNSEP). It aims at creating the conditions to enact and support a position in the contemporary art field for emerging artists. It stimulates the articulation of practice, research, discourse, critical reflection, and socialisation through individual and collective practices. Promoting transmission rather than education, the postgraduate programme based at the School of Fine Arts, Lyon, invites young artists from different geographical backgrounds who are already actively engaged in the art practice.

The 15th session 2015-2016 will focus on The Theater of Conflicts, a one-year collaboration with Den Danske Scenekunstskole, the Danish School for Performing Arts in Copenhagen. This project will revolve around the political and aesthetic legacy of documentary theatre, and its enactment in contemporary times. It will involve the contribution of international artists, directors, actors, theoreticians and activists, and will aim at producing a collective work.

Conditions for admission to the postgraduate course:

  • Applicants must hold a higher diploma (Master's degree) from a recognized national or international school of art, architecture, etc;
  • A shortlist will be drawn up on the basis of the applications;
  • Admission consists of an interview with a jury composed of the school director, the programme supervisor, and two international artists and curators;
  • Knowledge of French and English is mandatory.

Deadline for the reception of applications is 29 May 2015.

Information on the programme, applications and the admission procedure is available directly from the school or at its website www.ensba-lyon.fr
