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: Logo Parc, Tomorrow book studio, Traces of autism, After 1968. What is the political?, Circle for Lacanian Idelogy Critique and The pensive image.

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 … External interested parties are welcome to attend these activities. The result is a dynamic and critical exchange between the different agents from within and outside of the Jan van Eyck.


Researchers are advised by a team of artists, designers and theoreticians who have won their spurs globally: Orla Barry, Aglaia Korad, Hinrich Sachs, Imogen Stidworthy; Wim Cuyvers, Will Holder, Daniel van der Velden; Norman Bryson, Katja Diefenbach, Hanneke Grootenboer, Dominiek Hoens.

Researchers receive their own studio and a stipend. Furthermore, researchers can make use of all kinds of facilities which support their projects, from first concept to public presentation: the library, the documentation centre and various workshops (wood and other materials; graphic productions and photography; digital text & image processing and editing; time-based media). They can also get assistance with their print work, the editing and distribution of publications and the publicity of events.


Candidates can apply to a department or a collective research project. The academic year runs from 1 January to 31 December. Research candidates can apply for a one-year or two-year research period starting annually on 1 January. It is also possible to apply to do research for a different period and with a different starting date.
