Application Rijksakademie residency 2021

It is no longer possible to apply for residency year 2021. The deadline of 1 February 2020 has now expired.

The selection procedure consists of a number of rounds which normally take place from March until June.

Because of the corona control measures we had to postpone the rounds to October until December. The artists that signed up have been notified of this.
In the different rounds the jury will look at the quality of the work and the application, possibilities for further development of work and thinking within the specific context of the Rijksakademie, and willingness and capacity to play an active role in a critical artist’ community from around the world. The jury (consisting of artists and theoreticians affiliated to the Rijksakademie as advisor) invites a number of candidates for an interview in December, as the final round of the selection procedure.
An application consists of:
- online application form: all required fields must be completed (in English)
- documentation of work: please follow instructions to upload material
- A non-refundable application fee of 50 euro is charged, with an exception for artists living in the following countries (more information in the application form).

Please note that all correspondence relating to the selection process is in English.
