> ___________
> Profile
> The Jan van Eyck Academie is an institute for research and  
> production in the fields of fine art, design and theory. Every  
> year, 48 international researchers realise their individual or  
> collective projects in the artistic and challenging environment  
> that is the Jan van Eyck. The institute is not led by predetermined  
> leitmotivs. Artists, designers and theoreticians can submit  
> independently formulated proposals for research and/or production  
> in the Fine Art, Design and Theory department or candidates can  
> apply for collective research projects formulated by the Jan van  
> Eyck (see below). The miscellaneous nature of these research  
> projects and productions makes the Jan van Eyck into a multi- 
> disciplinary institute. This also shows in the programme of the  
> institute. Researchers, departments and the institute organise  
> various weekly activities, to which special speakers are invited:  
> lectures, seminars, workshops, screenings, exhibitions,  
> discussions,… 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.
> Facilities
> Researchers are advised by a team of artists, designers and  
> theoreticians who have won their spurs globally. They receive their  
> own studio and a stipend. Furthermore, researchers can make use of  
> all kinds of facilities which support their projects from first  
> concept to public presentation: 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, pr and  
> distribution).
> Application
> Candidates can apply for a department or a collective research  
> project as listed below. The one- or two-year research period at a  
> department starts in January 2007. The start and duration of

> Departments
> ___________
> Fine Art department
> The Fine Art department encourages both personal and discursive  
> exchange amongst its researchers in order to establish a context of  
> practice-oriented discussion; a context that considers issue- 
> orientation alongside other artistic approaches, as well as being  
> driven by processing, producing, organizing and going public.
> Advising researchers: Orla Barry, Aglaia Konrad, John Murphy,  
> Hinrich Sachs
> More information: http://janvaneyck.nl/4_0_departments/

> Design department
> The Design department focuses on design as research, design as  
> discourse, design as publishing. It initiates and supports research  
> projects in the areas of cultural and corporate identity, mapping,  
> print and new media publishing, urban and regional identity, and  
> book design. Coming from a focus on graphic and communication  
> design, the department is widening its scope to include spatial,  
> product and service design.
> Advising researchers: Wim Cuyvers, Will Holder, Jouke Kleerebezem,  
> Filiep Tacq, DaniŽl van der Velden

> Theory department
> The Theory department offers a stimulating environment for critical  
> inquiry and intense debate to explore alternative ways of shaping  
> intellectual horizons. The department welcomes researchers who  
> pursue their artistic and/or intellectual vision anywhere on the  
> interface of critical theory, philosophy, aesthetics, and  
> psychoanalysis with the visual arts.
> Advising researchers: Norman Bryson, Sabeth Buchmann, Helmut  
> Draxler, Stephan Geene, Hanneke Grootenboer, Marc De Kesel

> Traces of autism. Wander-research in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine
> This research project concerns the making of an inventory of public  
> space in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine, based on journeys made through  
> the area and following a number of strict parameters. During the  
> research the inner borders of the Euregio will function as a  
> reference line and a kind of reading axis. Gypsies, refugees,  
> migrants, drug addicts can possibly function as indicators,  
> although other indicators may come to the fore in the Euregio. The  
> emphasis will be on maps: on the one hand, existing maps will be  
> collected, on the other, new maps will be developed. During the  
> entire research period, the French pedagogue Fernand Deligny  
> (1913-1996) will be considered a supporter, someone who walks in  
> the footsteps of the researchers, as he did for thirty years:  
> following autistic patients, without intervention, only  
> registering, not even wanting to ‘learn’ anything.
> Advising researcher: Wim Cuyvers

> Logo Parc. Challenging the aesthetics of economy
> Logo Parc is a design research project for public space. Its main  
> focus of interest is the Zuidas (South Axis) in Amsterdam; a  
> prestigious area of high-rise office blocks, residential and  
> cultural facilities on both sides of the A10 motorway. The Zuidas  
> is considered a new typology of city, dedicated to the symbolic  
> representation of economy, information, knowledge and mobility.  
> Logo Parc is driven by a critical interest in the representation of  
> power and economy; both to deconstruct it, and to create it. As a  
> machine for comments, ideas and visions for the Zuidas, the project  
> aims to fuel discussion as well as trigger actual design issues,  
> operating freely in an area in between architectural, spatial and  
> communication design.
> Logo Parc is a joint project of Jan van Eyck Academie, Lectoraat  
> Kunst en Publieke Ruimte, Gerrit Rietveld Academy / Amsterdam  
> University, and Premsela Dutch Design Foundation.
> Advising researcher: DaniŽl van der Velden

> The tomorrow book
> The research project The tomorrow book intends to query the future  
> of the book from a multi-disciplinary standpoint. In doing so, the  
> following aspects will be treated: editing, typography, book  
> design, publishing and distribution. Convinced of the fact that the  
> book will never cease to exist, The tomorrow book focuses on the  
> specific qualities of the book as a medium. The umbrella theme of  
> the project The tomorrow book is navigation to, within and beyond  
> the book.
> The tomorrow book is a joint research project of the Jan van Eyck  
> Academie and the Charles Nypels Foundation.
> Advising researchers: Will Holder, Filiep Tacq

> UbiScribe
> The research project and on-line publication platform UbiScribe  
> researches into the explosive development of many forms of multi- 
> medial and multi-disciplinary chronicles such as weblogs, blogs,  
> vlogs and photologs. It focuses on new modes of authoring and of on- 
> line and off-line publishing, in which networked information and  
> communication support the conception, production and distribution  
> of original publishing formats in whatever media. Apart from  
> stimulating research on personal(ised) publishing (hardware,  
> software and content), UbiScribe investigates so-called ‘content  
> management systems’ and how they are applied in artistic production.
> Advising researcher: Jouke Kleerebezem

> The pensive image
> The pensive image is a research project on thinking images. This  
> project studies the extent to which images (painting, photography,  
> cinema etc.) are able to philosophize on the status of their own  
> representation, and on the nature of vision. The project is based  
> on the hypothesis that monocular models of vision such as  
> perspective and the camera have shaped our binocular perception of  
> the world. Following Hubert Damisch, W.J.T. Mitchell, among others,  
> The pensive image aims at formulating a theory as to how images  
> ‘think’ about vision through a study of images that ‘look  
> back’ at us, viewers.
> Advising researcher: Hanneke Grootenboer

> Circle for Lacanian ideology Critique
> The Jan van Eyck Circle for Lacanian Ideology Critique (CLiC)  
> gathers researchers who are interested in Lacanian theory and  
> consider it an open set of tools that enable researchers to  
> critically consider contemporary (post-)modern culture. CLiC  
> intends to activate the psychoanalytical – and especially  
> Lacanian – background of many current philosophers and critics,  
> such as Agamben, Badiou, Jameson, Laclau, Mouffe, Negri, Derrida,  
> Nancy, Rancière, Žižek and Zupancic. Insight into the Lacanian  
> background of these theories is indispensable to discover the very  
> core of their critical potentialities, which is why a confrontation  
> with and a reading of the Lacanian text is one of CLiC’s main  
> objectives.
> Advising researcher: Marc De Kesel

> Citygraphy. 19th century and 21st century topographic photography  
> in Maastricht
> Citygraphy examines the role of 19th century photography in the  
> consciousness and perception of the European city as a historic  
> focal point – a fulcrum subject to the powers of modernization.  
> Contrasts between urban centres and expanding suburbs, between  
> handicraft and industrial production, between transport by water  
> and over land, between conservation and redevelopment, between  
> restoration as both a form of protection and of rebuilding, between  
> the interests of residents and those of visitors all determine the  
> overall politics of life. What role did the visual image play in  
> all of this, and in particular, what was the role of photography?
> The research project Citygraphy is a commission for a photographer/ 
> researcher. The commission concerns the development of a personal  
> photographic vision of 21st century Maastricht, taking the 19th  
> century city images of Maastricht as a starting point.
> Citygraphy is a joint project of the Jan van Eyck Academie and  
> Hogeschool St. Lukas Brussel and is subsidized by Stichting Werner  
> Mantz.
