Goethe Institut and Haus der Kunst have established a post-doctoral fellowship program at Haus Der Kunst. The program was inaugurated in August 2013 and awards each fellowship for one academic year. The third fellowship is to start in August 2015.

Haus der Kunst is a non-collecting public museum and a key global center for contemporary art located in Munich, Germany. It is dedicated to the exploration of the diverse histories of contemporary art based on a foundation of focused exhibitions, research, and education. The museum’s aim is to further establish research as an integral cornerstone of its vision, and to develop a context for scholarship that allows for the interplay of art, culture, politics, and society in the way modern and contemporary art are understood on a global level. The Goethe-Institut Fellowship is an important building block towards this aim.

Supported by the Goethe-Institut, the Goethe-Institut Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Haus der Kunst is designed for international emerging scholars whose research focuses on global perspectives on modern and contemporary art in the second half of the 20th century and the 21st century.

The fellowship shall concentrate on the research for a comprehensive exhibition project on the global art historical developments of the post-war era. The post-war project is substantially supported by the German Federal Cultural Foundation and the first of a trilogy whose second and third chapters will be devoted to the periods of post-colonialism and post-communism. One of the main tasks is the research and organisation of a series of seminars and colloquia in preparation for the project that will be presented at Haus der Kunst in 2016.
