THE MATERIALITY OF THE INVISIBLE
Application deadline: 9 January 2017
The post academic institute Van Eyck in Maastricht (NL) invites artists who have a strong interest in applying archaeology as a method in their own work to apply for a one-year research residency at the Van Eyck. The Heritage department of the Province of Limburg sponsors one place for an artist at the institute in the context of NEARCH (New Scenarios for a Community Involved in Archaeology).
The Materiality of the Invisible is one of several themes touched on by NEARCH. It forms the starting point for research into what it is that connects and distinguishes the work of artists and archaeologists. It presents an opportunity to learn about the respective professions, as well as to exchange knowledge and to debate their fundamental assumptions, in a period of rapid change and shifting cultural positions.
What we are offering:
• One 1-year residency at the Van Eyck • A monthly grant and a working budget • The support of Van Eyck advisors, use of the Labs, and being part of the international multidisciplinary community of the Van Eyck • Participation in the EU project NEARCH • Participation in the exhibition The Materiality of the Invisible spread out over 3 venues in Maastricht
