BAK Fellowship Program
Since 2017, BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht conducts a post-academic Fellowship Program with, at its center, research on reframing and rethinking conditions of the contemporary through politically driven art-making and inquiry. The 10-month Fellowship Program offers 10 research positions per year (September–June) to Netherlands- and internationally-based practitioners at the intersection of art, theory, and social action. The Fellowship Program develops talent and critical practice in concert with the public projects of BAK, advancing the notion of art as a public sphere and a political space.

The realization of this project has been made possible through financial contributions by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and the City Council, Utrecht.

BAK’s main partner in the field of education and research is HKU University of the Arts Utrecht.
