Fellowship

Sinds 2017 organiseert BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht een postacademisch Fellowship-programma met als kern onderzoek naar het herdefiniëren en opnieuw nadenken over de hedendaagse stand van zaken door middel van gepolitiseerde kunstproductie- en onderzoek. Het Fellowship-programma duurt 10 maanden en biedt 10 onderzoeksposities per jaar (september-juni) aan Nederlandse en internationale beoefenaars werkende op het snijvlak van kunst, theorie en sociale actie. Het Fellowship-programma ontwikkelt talent en kritische praktijken gerelateerd aan de publieke projecten van BAK. Daarbij wordt het idee van kunst als publiek domein en politieke ruimte bevorderd. Het BAK Fellowship is low-residential. De Fellows komen regelmatig bijeen bij BAK voor Fellow Intensives met kunstenaars, wetenschappers en andere culturele beoefenaars als gast.

Het Fellowship-programma is gewijd aan het faciliteren van collectieve, intergenerationele praktijk en het betrekken van een kritische groep. Daarom moedigen we aanmeldingen aan van personen met praktijken die vaak buiten de canon vallen, personen die gemarginaliseerde identiteiten en ervaringen hebben en personen van verschillende leeftijden.
