Artists, designers and theoreticians are invited to submit proposals for individual or collective research projects for a one-year, two-year or variable research period in the departments of Fine Art, Design and Theory. Candidates can either apply with a topic of their own or for a project formulated by the institute itself.
The Jan van Eyck Akademie is an international post graduate institute for practical experiment and research in the field of visual culture. The academy combines three departments – fine art, design, and theory – as equal partners within a common programme: debate and research on the contemporary cultural condition.
Participants are expected to have an openness towards possiblitities of an active presence in the fluid pattern of society. Translating such openness into an experimental post graduate research is not a matter of working in more than one discipline, context or culture, but rather of letting the experience of thinking in one field play a role in another one. Participants are co-responsible for the department?’s programme.
