Advisors and committees

We review every application as carefully, expertly and impartially as possible. Therefore, we work together with independent advisors. These are experts, such as artists, exhibition makers, critics, art historians, museum employees and others who are able to appreciate the developments of visual art and cultural heritage.

The assessment is subject to guidelines and criteria that objectify the personal views that advisors may have. In addition to quality, the most important criterion, applications are assessed for presentation, development, recognition, and professional and public scope. The assessment is established by mutual agreement between the advisors, who are asked to be generous and to look beyond their own preferences.

The Mondriaan Fund has many grant opportunities. When an advisor has submitted an application himself or the organization for which he works or when the adviser is privately or professionally involved in an application from others, an advisor cannot participate in the concerning advisory meeting. In that case, the consultant will not be invited or the invitation will be withdrawn. If there is involvement in an application, the advisor must inform the Mondriaan Fund as soon as possible. This is laid down in a protocol that is signed by all advisors.

For the formation of committees, which follows an open call, diversity is taken into account. In order to safeguard different visions and perspectives on art and heritage, membership of the committees rotates and all members are only temporarily involved with the Mondriaan Fund. In principle, an advisor is appointed for 2 years, with a possible extension of up to 2 years.

To avoid (the impression of) conflicts of interest, a protocol has been formulated that will be signed by advisers. Advisers cannot advise on schemes for which they have themselves submitted an application. In addition, it will be examined whether an adviser has an indirect interest in the applications being processed (for example, as a curator or a member of an institution’s advisory council, or as a relative of the applicant).

Advisory committee per grant

Below you will find an overview of our advisory committees per grant.

Applications for the Acquisition Programs grant are possible once every 2 years. The last application round was in 2021. The next deadline will be in 2023. The composition of the advisory committee will be announced in early 2023.
