Rijksakademie Research Residency call for entries – deadline 1 February 2008

Rijksakademie Research Residency


The Rijksakademie Research Residency in Amsterdam is an international research and production place for talented, professional artists from all over the world. The Rijksakademie is more than a residency. It has extensive technical facilities, a library, artists’ documentation and art collections. In addition the Rijksakademie offers material basic facilities such as a studio, a work budget, mediation with accommodation and grants.

There are some fifty studios where resident artists work for one to two years on research, experiments, projects and production.
Confrontation with diverse cultures and advice by renowned international artists, exhibition makers, theoreticians and technical specialists promote the deepening, expansion and acceleration of artistic practice. Practical experience has revealed that a work period at the Rijksakademie has the greatest effect three to five years after graduation.

Resident artists pursue every medium and technique: painting, drawing, graphics, photography, sculpture, video, film, sound and
digital media. Links with other areas are also explored such as architecture and public space, theatre, music, literature and diverse
scientific disciplines.

Each year approximately twenty-five artists are invited for a residency. Artists can apply for a residency from January to December 2009 by using the online application form. The deadline for application is 1 February 2008.
