Ausschreibung der Niederländischen Reichsakademie der Bildenden Künste
Herewith I would like to inform you about our call for applications for the new residency year of 2019 at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten.
The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam (founded in 1870) offers a two-year residency hosting approximately 50 international artists every year. We select exceptionally talented artists and offer them technical and theoretical facilities of the highest quality, giving them the chance to accelerate their professional development and to become part of an international network of art professionals. The Rijksakademie is among the world’s best known artist residencies and is positioned next to scientific research centers like the MIT in Boston and the Max Planck Institutes worldwide. A residency at the Rijksakademie often leads to the international breakthrough of the artist. The work of alumni is to be found in well-known galleries, museum collections, biennales and art manifestations.
Art as envisioned and endorsed by the Rijksakademie is an engaged practice, that reaches and contributes to current urgencies and themes within a global society. With the influx of residents from all over the world, different standpoints and insights accumulate, are transmitted and tuned in productive and relevant ways. Accordingly we aim to spread the call for applications as widely as possible.
We hope to receive many applications from Germany! I would kindly want to ask whether you can help us in the process. If you would be able to place the call on your website and/or forward it in your network we would very much appreciate it. Attached you find the call for applications. Applications for the 2019 residency can be completed online by filling in the application form. The applications can be submitted between January 1st until February 1st 2018.
