Jan van Eyck Academie : CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
Artists are invited to submit proposals for research projects for the coming year in the Fine Art department of the Jan van Eyck Academie.
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 critical environment that is the Jan van Eyck. In doing so, they are advised by a team of artists, designers and theorists who have won their spurs globally. The researchers can also avail themselves of facilities that support their projects from first concept to public presentation. All in all, the Jan van Eyck offers artists, designers and theoreticians time and space to do research and realise productions, either about topics of their own choosing or as part of a project formulated by the institute itself.
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 researchers and advising researchers, according to their interests.

Researchers are advised by a team of artists, designers and theorists who have won their spurs globally. They receive their own studio and a stipend.

They can also get assistance with their print work, the editing and distribution of publications and the publicity of events.
