Program Description

Within an international group of fellow practitioners, each participant can further develop their artistic practice in depth, experiment, collaborate, and exchange. All selected participants will have access to a private studio, a monthly stipend and working budget, expert guidance from staff and (guest) advisers, a chance to shape the institute's public programme of events, access to all academy labs, departments, and facilities: the Library, departments – Art & Society, Nature Research, Research & Education, and labs – Photography & Audiovisual, Material Matters, Food, Printing & Publishing, and Future Materials. The Jan van Eyck Academie is committed to exploring the agency, roles, and civic significance of art, design, and other creative practices in relation to the climate crisis, environmental breakdown, and their manifold effects. This institutional focus aims at creating a common ground that embraces a diversity of practices and allows for a multitude of voices.
