Call for applications:

Goethe-Institut Fellowship at the documenta Institute

Application deadline: September 7, 2020

The Goethe-Institut, the documenta archiv and the 
Kunsthochschule Kassel (University of the Arts 
Kassel) / University of Kassel are launching 
their joint fellowship program for international 
young scientists and researching artists and 
curators at the documenta Institute. Twice a 
year, starting in October 2020, one fellowship 
holder each-preferably from non-European 
countries or European countries comparatively 
underrepresented in the art context-will be 
invited to Kassel for a period of six months to 
conduct their research in relation to documenta. 
International fellows will benefit from a wealth 
of materials on documenta history and on modern 
and contemporary art stored at the documenta 
archiv, as well as from the exchange with the 
teams of the documenta archiv, the documenta 
Institute under development, the Kunsthochschule 
Kassel, the University of Kassel and their 
academic environment. Public events or 
publications in Kassel and, if possible, 
preferably also in the fellows' countries of 
origin, will lend visibility to the fellows' 
research and perspective.

The Goethe-Institut Fellowship at the documenta 
Institute enables to examine diverse 
interdisciplinary and international references to 
the documenta exhibitions in art and contemporary 
history and to gain new insights with regards to 
art production and the networks emerged 
therefrom. It aims to contribute to further 
breaking open a Western European/North American 
dominated art historical canon and to expand it 
by new perspectives.

The program runs from October 1, 2020 to 
September 30, 2023; the research stay for the 
first fellow should, if possible, begin on 
October 1, 2020 and last until March 31, 2021. 
The residency will be located in Kassel. The 
scholarship is endowed with 2,000¤ per month. The 
applicant should ideally have prior experience in 
archival research, critical exhibition research 
and German language skills, at least reading 
comprehension at B1/B2 level. The application 
deadline for the first cycle is September 7.
