Application period: January 1-February 1, 2019

This is an open call, but what does it mean to be open?

The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten invites applications from 
artists to develop their work over one or two-year periods in 

The Rijksakademie's artist community has a unique ecology, which is 
highly international, multi-disciplinary, experimental and critically 
engaged. Artists are supported with a studio, a stipend, by a wide 
range of artistic and technical advisors, including artists, curators 
and thinkers, and have access to well-equipped workshops, a library 
and discursive engagement. We have a commitment to diversity, to 
working with a global perspective and with sensitivity to the local.

As an artist, you are ready to make the most of these resources. You 
are open to challenging yourself, to working alongside positions that 
are vastly different from one another, and to engaging with wider 
social and discursive programmes. We are also interested in practices 
that maximise the social and transformative power of art.

Selected artists usually have finished a BA/MA education and have a 
few years of independent professional practice before starting a 
residency at the Rijksakademie, but there is no prerequisite to have 
undertaken a formal art education.

Every year, about 22 places become available. We are seeking 
residents for the period beginning January-December 2020, with the 
possibility of staying one year more. You can apply by completing the 
online application form on the website between January 1-February 1,
