Our partner The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten from the Education from Below project announced their call for applications for 2022 and invites applications from artists to develop their work over one or two-year periods in Amsterdam.
The Rijksakademie houses a highly international, multi-disciplinary, experimental and critically engaged artist community. Residents are supported with a studio, a work budget and a stipend and benefit from an array of opportunities for exchange, including peer-to-peer dialogue and visits from a wide range of leading art professionals. They have access to technical workshops as well as an extensive library and a historical collection. There is guidance by technical specialists, who foster hands-on, innovative and collaborative approaches to production.
As an artist, you are ready to make the most of these resources. You are open to challenging yourself, and to working alongside positions that are vastly different from your own. Spending up to two years in residence, you enter into an open-ended process where you can deepen your practices, and explore new territories, in and beyond the art field. Selected artists usually have finished a BA/MA education, and must have at least 2-3 years of independent professional practice before starting a residency at the Rijksakademie.
Every year, about 22 places become available. The Rijksakademie is seeking residents for the period September 2022–August 2023, with the possibility of staying one more year. You can apply by completing the online application form on the website between September 1, 12am–October 1, 11:59pm, 2021. For any further questions email contact is available.
