Call for applications for the HISK programme 2014 & 2015
Deadline submission: June 15, 2013
Information and conditions:

The HISK offers a postacademic course in visual and audiovisual art of two years.

Artists who have already obtained a Masters degree in Fine Art or an equivalent qualification are eligible to apply to the HISK. Exceptions can be made for applicants who do not have a Master degree but display a high level of development, motivation and artistic affinity.

The admission committee is composed of international visiting lecturers from a variety of backgrounds. They make a pre-selection from the submitted portfolios, and the candidates who make it through are invited for an interview regarding their motivations and expectations. After a period of evaluation and careful consideration, the committee then makes a decision as to whether the applicant is suitable.

The conceptual and visual qualities in the works submitted by applicants are considered to be more important than style, material or technique. Participants are expected to have a strong commitment to conducting critical research within their respective fields of interest. At the same time, they should aim towards locating their practice within a broader perspective of social and cultural environments. Candidates are also expected to make a contribution to the activities of the HISK as a whole. This interaction is seen to be an important forum of exchange and development.

Each year, 12 artists are admitted.

The postgraduate educational programme of the HISK is a full-time programme and lasts two years, starting on January 1, 2014 and ending on December 31, 2015. The registration fee amounts to 2000 EUR/year (plus a single deposit of 300 EUR). Health insurance is not included in the registration fee. The registration fee (and the deposit) are payable before the start of the working year. The Higher Institute of Fine Arts offers a private workspace and pedagogical guidance. There are no scholarships or residencies available. Living costs are the participants’ own responsibility. Foreign candidate-laureates have to arrange all the necessary administration themselves in order to obtain a visa for study purposes and an official residence permit.
