Open Call | BAK Fellowships 2019/2020, Netherlands

Application deadline: 14 March.

Since 2017, BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht conducts a post-academic Fellowship Program with, at its center, research on reframing and rethinking conditions of the contemporary through politically driven art-making and inquiry. The 10-month Fellowship Program offers 10 research positions per year (September–June) to Netherlands- and internationally-based practitioners at the intersection of art, theory, and social action. The Fellowship Program develops talent and critical practice in concert with the public projects of BAK, advancing the notion of art as a public sphere and a political space. The BAK Fellowships is low-residential. The Fellows regularly gather at BAK for Fellows Intensives with visiting artists, scholars, as well as other cultural practitioners.

The Fellowship Program is dedicated to facilitating collective, intergenerational practice, and is committed to engaging a critical group. They therefore encourage people with uncanonized practices, of marginalized identities and experiences, and of a variety of ages to apply.
