Call for Entries Rijksakademie Residency 2013

The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam (est. 1870) aims to develop top talent in the international visual art world and promotes the position of art and artists in today’s society. 
By offering artistic, theoretical and technical support the Rijksakademie creates an environment in which about 50 emerging professional artists from all over the world can, for a maximum of two years, work on deepening, broadening and accelerating their profession – individually and socially.
In addition to facilities like a studio, work budget and a stipend, the residents can request feedback and support from internationally acclaimed artists and theorists, who are connected to the Rijksakademie as advisors. In professionally equipped workshops technicians collaborate with the artists in finding solutions to create their work. The presence of different media makes inter-disciplinary projects possible. Furthermore, the Rijksakademie hosts (historical) art collections, an extensive library and artists’ documentation.
