The Fellowship Programme hosts international practitioners and researchers in the areas of architecture, design and digital culture. Proposals are invited through an international open call and selected by an international jury of curators, academics and leaders in the creative fields. Fellows are supported by mentorship, archival resources, working spaces and a stipend, and their research can evolve into public events, exhibitions, films or publications in collaboration with Het Nieuwe Instituut.


Call For Fellows 2022: Testing Grounds

Since its foundation in 2013, Het Nieuwe Instituut has carried out and supported research in architecture, design and digital culture. Exhibitions, lectures, archival investigations and publications have served as outputs of research, but more importantly as active platforms for its development. Het Nieuwe Instituut’s Fellowship Programme has a fundamental role in these platforms. Intended as a means of supporting and learning from a variety of research initiatives and methodologies, the fellowship is ultimately an opportunity to rehearse other modes of thinking and doing. For this year's theme, the Research department proposes Testing Grounds as the focus for the 2022 Open Call.
