Center for Experimental Museology
Call for research projects
February 25-April 21, 2017


Center for Experimental Museology (CEM) is calling for research projects.

CEM is a self-organized non-profit organization. It derives from 
issues such as innovations of soviet avant-garde museology, the 
history of experimental exhibition design and speculation about the 
possible impact of the museum and art in the development of humankind 
according to Russian Cosmism. We aim to dig deep and gather data, 
information and knowledge related to the museum as a medium, an 
institution, and an agent. Through historical or futuristic 
perspectives, through fiction or fact, we strive to reflect on the 
many multidisciplinary intersections within the body and nature of a 
museum, to collect the findings and to create a network of 
contributors to the topic.

More in our <http://redmuseum.church>blog.

One of the projects CEM is currently working on is the exhibition 
Moscow diaries, a collaboration with the Museum of American Art in 
Berlin. The exhibition is dedicated to the Kazemir Malevich room in 
the Cubism and Abstract Art show at MoMA, curated by Alfred Barr, and 
a Moscow display of the artist's works at Tretyakov Gallery in 1920s 
by Alexey Fedorov-Davydov.

We call for researchers in all fields of humanities internationally.

We offer financial and administrative support, which can be aimed at 
those willing to conduct research in Russia or abroad within the 
period April 21, 2017-April 21, 2018. Offered financial support 
depends on the required budget for each project and includes travel 
and accommodation expenses. Administrative support includes help with 
Russian-language related issues (making appointments and conducting 
correspondence, etc.).

Deadline: April 21, 2017

Please submit (in English or in Russian and in a single PDF format) 
at <mailto:cem at redmuseum.church>cem at redmuseum.church:

Project proposals will be reviewed by members of CEM and selected 
projects will be announced by May 1, 2017.

As an outcome of the research project, we will ask you to contribute 
to a publication with an essay (20 pages min) on the topic of 
research conducted.

CEM is produced by V-A-C Foundation.
