Jan van Eyck Academie: Call for applications

Apologies for cross-posting

Jan van Eyck Academie
Post-academic Institute for Research and Production
Fine Art, Design, Theory

Call for applications
Deadline: Friday 13 April 2007

Artists, designers and theoreticians are invited to submit research
and production proposals to become a researcher at the Jan van Eyck
Academie. Candidates can either apply with a topic of their own or
for a project formulated by the institute itself. In order to realise
these projects, the Jan van Eyck offers the necessary made-to-measure
artistic, technical and auxiliary preconditions.

The Jan van Eyck Academie is 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 challenging environment that is the Jan
van Eyck. The institute is not led by predetermined leitmotivs.
Artists, designers and theoreticians can submit independently
formulated proposals for research and/or production in the Fine Art,
Design and Theory department or candidates can apply for collective
research projects formulated by the Jan van Eyck (see below). The
miscellaneous nature of these research projects and productions makes
the Jan van Eyck into a multi-disciplinary institute. This also shows
in the programme of the institute. Researchers, departments and the
institute organise various weekly activities, to which special
speakers are invited: lectures, seminars, workshops, screenings,
exhibitions, discussions
