     Call for applications
     Deadline: 15 April 2005
     Our apologies for cross-listing.
     The Jan van Eyck Academie is an institute for research and
     production in the fields of Fine Art, Design and Theory, based in
     Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands. The academy invites
     artists, designers and theoreticians to submit research or
     production proposals. In order to realise these projects, the
     academy offers the necessary made-to-measure artistic, technical
     and auxiliary preconditions and develops contacts with external
     Research, production, presentation, discussion
     The Jan van Eyck Academie offers space and time to let go of
     predetermined processes and to explore new inroads which may lead
     to unexpected results: unconventional productions, such as
     temporary projects in the public arena, fictional designs or
     speculative thought experiments. This experimental attitude towards
     research and production implies that the academy is not led by
     predetermined leitmotivs. The subject matters of the various
     research projects of its international artists, designers and
     theoreticians are heterogeneous (see examples below).
     These miscellaneous projects form the basis for several events
     which are organized each week: presentations, discussions,
     lectures, seminars, screenings, exhibitions,
 External interested
     parties are welcome to attend these activities. The result is a
     dynamic and critical exchange between the different agents from
     within and outside of the Jan van Eyck.
     Artists, designers and theoreticians who submitted a project
     proposal and were subsequently selected become researchers at the
     Jan van Eyck. In order to realise their projects researchers have
     their own studios, receive a grant and can make use of the
     facilities: the library, the documentation centre, various
     workshops (wood and other materials; graphic techniques;
     photography; digital text and image processing and editing;
     time-based media) and the production bureau (assistance with print
     work, editing and all other productions). They can also appeal to
     the institute for pr assistance relating to their projects or for
     the distribution of their productions.
     The researchers can furthermore call upon the support of artistic
     advisors: the advising researchers. The following advising
     researchers are active in the Jan van Eyck Academie: Orla Barry,
     Norman Bryson, Sabeth Buchmann, Wim Cuyvers, Helmut Draxler,
     Stephan Geene, Marc De Kesel, Jouke Kleerebezem, Aglaia Konrad, Eva
     Meyer, John Murphy, Hinrich Sachs, Filiep Tacq, Daniël van der
     Velden and Annelys de Vet.
     Artists, designers and theoreticians who wish to apply for a one or
     two year research period, starting in January 2006, can send in
     their research proposal before 15 April 2005. See for application
