The fellowship programme hosts international practitioners and researchers in the fields of architecture, design, and digital culture. Proposals are invited through an international open call and selected by an international jury of renowned curators, academics, and leaders in the creative fields. Fellows are supported with 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.
On March 18, Het Nieuwe Instituut launches its yearly Open Call for three research fellows to work in residence from September 2019 to February 2020. With the title: BURN-OUT. Exhaustion on a planetary scale, this year’s theme addresses exploitative, multi scalar structures, and aims to instigate other forms of coexistence, sensibility and care for larger, multispecies, collective bodies. Through its annual Call for Fellows, Het Nieuwe Instituut’s Research Department acknowledges and gives visibility to research projects offering departures from established modes of thinking and practice. Applications are open from March 18 to April 22, 2019.
