Goethe Institut and Haus der Kunst have recently announced a new 
postdoctoral fellowship program, the Goethe-Institut Fellowship at 
Haus der Kunst. The program will award each fellowship for one 
academic year beginning this fall 2012.

Haus der Kunst is a non-collecting public museum and a key global 
center for contemporary art located in Munich. It is dedicated to the 
exploration of the diverse histories of contemporary art based on a 
foundation of focused exhibitions, research, and education. The 
museum's aim is to establish research as an integral cornerstone of 
its vision, and to develop a context for scholarship that allows for 
the interplay of art, culture, politics, and society in the way 
modern and contemporary art are understood on a global level. The 
Goethe-Institut Fellowship is an important building block towards 
this aim.

Haus der Kunst is designed for international emerging scholars whose 
research focuses on global perspectives on modern and contemporary 
art in the second half of the 20th century and 21st century.

comprehensive exhibition project on the global art-historical 
developments of the postwar era. It will be the first of a trilogy 
whose second and third chapters will be devoted to the periods of 
Post-colonialism and Post-communism. One of the main tasks is the 
research and organisation of a series of seminars, colloquia, an 
international symposium in preparation for the project.
