On this site, you will find everything you need to know about PROJECTART/PROJECTKUNST.
This open call is a combined initiative of the Research Centre on Technology Driven Art (TDA, Peter Missotten) and the Research Centre for Arts, Autonomy, and the Public Sphere (AOK, Ruth Benschop).
Technologydrivenart.org explores artistic strategies in dealing with the driving force of technology in art creation. The research group stimulates both the use of new technologies in art creation, as critical attitudes towards this.
Engagement and artistic research are the themes of the Research Centre AOK. We develop artistic research as an experimental, intimate ethnography in which systematic sensitivity for the world is fundamental. We stimulate work that explores the riches hidden between opposing clichés about art, society, politics, academia and research. The centre thus functions as an ordinary ánd a contrary part of the Faculty of Arts of Zuyd University.
Both research centres give you - the students - the possibility of developing an art-research project. The aim is to stimulate a researching attitude within artistic creation. Projectkunst.org wants to stimulate collaborations of students on artistic research projects. These collaborations have a priority.
Students can propose an artistic project (in any form) in which research plays a crucial part. There are no deadlines. You can enter your project at any moment in Dutch or English.
We will co-finance your project for up to 1.500 euro. Each year, we will support up to 5 projects. You can submit in any form…
All students can apply here online. You will receive an answer within a month.
In the proposal, you should make clear how you want to use the extra financial support for the artistic research in your project. You could for instance use it to hire expertise or coaching, to finance the publication of your research and - to some extend - to buy research materials. Make sure you still have time (at least 12 months before graduating) to do the research associated with your project. This support is not meant to finance the regular activities of your final project.
The jury consists of the two heads of the research centres of the Faculty of Arts Zuyd.
All entries will be assessed for substance, originality and diversity of the approach. Also, the heads will assess to what extent the proposals fit the research focus of their research centres. Collaborations between students (and academies) are looked upon favourably.
The projects that receive financial support, are coached by the research centres to strengthen the research approach of the projects. During the project, the initiators will meet regularly with a member of the supervising research centre to discuss the progress of the project. After the project is finalized, a documentation of the project will be published by the supervising research centre (online, or perhaps materially as part of a collection of research reports and theses)
