Applications are invited for the 2022 Maumaus Independent Study Programme, which will run from January 6 until July 22, 2022.

The intense programme runs for 27 weeks (312 contact hours) and is devised and organised by the art theorist and curator Jürgen Bock (director of the Maumaus School and Residency Programme and its associated exhibition space Lumiar Cité).

The programme is open to a maximum of twenty participants (artists or art-related researchers or other professionals). The programme is designed to encourage the participants to analyse and develop their art practice in a stimulating, intellectually rigorous, yet informal environment. The programme creates a context for the internalisation of comprehension and knowledge through discussion and critical thinking.

Besides regular critical studies and group discussions, seminars, workshops and lectures will offer insights and multiple perspectives on current thinking inside and outside—but always in relation to—the field of art and are devised by a range of internationally renowned artists/film-makers such as Gerry Bibby, Manthia Diawara, Erica Love / João Enxuto, Loretta Fahrenholz, Renée Green, Florian Hecker, Judith Hopf, Christodoulos Panayiotou, João Penalva, Simon Thompson, Fredrik Værslev and Emily Wardill; art historians Sabeth Buchmann, Helmut Draxler, Toni Hildebrandt, Ilse Lafer, Elvira Dyangani Ose and Gertrud Sandqvist; philosophers Stefanie Baumann, Marcia Cavalcante Schuback, Bojana Cvejić, Alexander García Düttmann, Michael Marder, Alberto Toscano, Sjoerd van Tuinen and Giovanbattista Tusa; sociologists Avery F. Gordon and Marcel Stoetzler; anthropologist Filip De Boeck; writer Alan Read; and social theorists Brenna Bhandar, Ruth Wilson Gilmore and Manuela Ribeiro Sanches.

Studio visits will allow the enrolled practitioners to develop their work through discussions with Gerry Bibby, Jürgen Bock, Judith Hopf, Christodoulos Panayiotou, João Penalva, Simon Thompson, Fredrik Værslev and Emily Wardill.

Applicants should take into consideration:
–Applications should be sent via email to maumaus [​at​] (submissions accepted until September 20, 2021).
–Applications should include a motivation letter, a CV and a portfolio documenting examples of work the applicants consider most relevant to their current practice.

–The language of the ISP Maumaus is English.
–The administration of the ISP Maumaus provides foreign participants support for finding accommodation and studios in Lisbon, as well as support for obtaining a study visa, if necessary.
–The next edition of the ISP Maumaus starts on January 6, running until July 22, 2022, with a one-week break at Carnival and a two-week spring break.
–Changes may occur during the course of the Programme.
