Applications are invited for the 2023 Maumaus Independent Study Programme, which will run from January 12 until July 27, 2023. 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 two 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 classes of 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 Ed AtkinsGerry BibbyManthia DiawaraLoretta FahrenholzRenée GreenFlorian HeckerJudith Hopf, Erica Love/João EnxutoUriel Orlow, Christodoulos PanayiotouJoão PenalvaSimon Thompson and Fredrik Værslev; art historians Sabeth BuchmannHelmut DraxlerToni HildebrandtIlse LaferGertrud Sandqvist and Kerstin Stakemeier; philosophers Stefanie BaumannBojana CvejićAlexander García DüttmannMichael MarderAlberto ToscanoSjoerd van Tuinen and Giovanbattista Tusa; sociologists Avery F. Gordon and Marcel Stoetzler; anthropologist Filip De Boeck; writer Alan Read; and social theorists Brenna BhandarRuth Wilson Gilmore and Manuela Ribeiro Sanches
