Open call for projects 2017

Perspektive – Fund for Contemporary Art and Architecture, initiated by the Bureau for Visual Arts of the Institut français Germany, aims to support projects happening between France and Germany. It is funded by the French Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Culture, the Institut français and the Goethe-Institut and it is supported by the Deutsche Bank to reinforce the cultural cooperation between the two countries.

The call for projects by Perspektive runs from October 1 until December 1, 2016.

In February 2017 the artistic expert committee will announce the projects that shall receive funding for implementation in the same year.

Under the guidance of Adeline Blanchard (Head of the Bureau for Visual Arts), the independent German-French expert committee includes:

Eike Becker, architect, Berlin
Jacques Ferrier, architect and urbanist, Paris

Perspektive supports projects that focus on exchange and collaboration with artists, architects and intermediaries between Germany and France.

Only proposals that contribute to the dissemination of ideas and competences will be funded: projects including concept and research labs, panel discussions, workshops, symposia, conferences or performances.

Perspektive is aimed at public and private institutions. These include museums, art centers, architecture centers, Kunstvereins, galleries, architecture agencies, project spaces, artist-run spaces, alternative exhibition venues.
