When and where to apply

The deadline for submitting applications for a Mondriaan Fund Residency Grant is at 5:00 PM Central European Time on 2 May 2022.
You must first request an account on the Mondriaan Fund website, which you need to submit any grant application. Keep in mind that following the deadline date, a three-month period is required for processing the applications. No grants are awarded retrospectively.

There are two categories of residencies: residencies in the Netherlands and residencies in other countries. For each of these two categories, you may apply for no more than two residencies. This means that if you wish to apply for residencies in both categories at the same time, you may apply for two in the Netherlands and two in other countries. A separate application must be submitted for each residency you apply for.

This explanation is based on the Mondriaan Fund Residency Grant regulations.

  • You must have been working as a professional visual artist for at least one year and be registered as such with the Kamer van Koophandel; or

  • At the moment you submit your application, you are not receiving other financial support from the Mondriaan Fund that covers the same costs.
  • The resident is expected to contribute 10%, this is settled by the Mondriaan Fund.
  • Mondriaan Fund grants may not be used for or during study. You may not use a Mondriaan Fund grant at the same time that you are following a bachelor, master, graduate, postgraduate or postdoctoral programme at, for example, the Rijksakademie, BAK, de Ateliers, de Jan van Eyck Academie or Sundaymorning@EKWC).
  • An artist may apply for two residencies in the Netherlands and two residencies in other countries in a given application round. A separate application, including the application form and PDF attachments, must be submitted for each location applied for, always with the applicant’s preferred dates and locations clearly indicated.
  • You must have been working for at least one year as a curator or art observer in the field of visual arts or cultural heritage, and be able to demonstrate this with publications, exhibitions, research projects or projects you have initiated.
  • You are artistically active and embedded in the professional visual arts in the Netherlands.

  • You may not use a Mondriaan Fund grant to pay for study. Mondriaan Fund grants may not be used at the same time that you are enrolled in any bachelor, master, graduate, postgraduate or postdoctoral programme.
  • A curator/art observer may apply for no more than two residencies in the Netherlands and two residencies in another country during any application round. For each residency, a separate application form and PDF attachments must be submitted, clearly indicating the applicant’s preferred residency dates and locations.

Some residencies can only be applied for by visual artists or only by curators / observers, others by both. At the bottom of this page, you can read specific information about the characteristics of each residency, the conditions, the workperiod, etc

Assessing the applications

Submitted applications and associated PDF documents are first checked by Mondriaan Fund staff to ensure they are complete. They are then presented to a committee that advises on awarding Residency Grants.

In assessing your application, the advisory committee follows an intital elimination procedure:

  • In the first round of voting, if no member of the committee gives a positive assessment, a negative advisory is given.
  • In the second round of voting, each committee member assesses the artistic functioning and other criteria mentioned above. If this round does not result in a majority of positive assessments, a negative advisory is given.

A Mondriaan Fund Residency Grant can only be awarded if the committee gives a positive advisory. Following the final round of voting, the committee can indicate which applications have their highest priority, as it is unfortunately not always possible to award grants to all applicants who are positively assessed. A meeting between the management of the particular residency and the proposed candidate may also be part of the selection procedure. If the applications fail to produce a suitable candidate, the advisory committee can propose candidates themselves.

What happens with my application?
  • Visual documentation
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Explanation of your work and your artistic and substantive starting points
  • A plan, including a motivation of why you wish to attend the specific residency, including an explanation of how you will reach a suitable audience and bind them to your work.

The advisory committee assesses both the quality and the development of your work, as well as the qualities of your plan and how it connects with the institution or programme where you wish to work out and execute your plan.

The artistic and substantive quality of the work:

  • For artists: is your oeuvre, or can your oeuvre be expected to be of importance for contemporary visual arts in the Netherlands? In this regard, the advisory committee looks at the quality of the work. Of relevance here are the underlying artistic principles and the way in which these are expressed through the work, its power of imagination and the application of the media used.
  • For curators or observers: is the body of work that you have built up of importance, or will it be of importance for contemporary visual arts or cultural heritage in the Netherlands? In its assessment, the committee looks at the cohesion between your substantive and/or theoretical principles and starting points, and the way these are brought to light in the work and your professional activities. Your vision plays a role here, in the way in which you work through that vision, the ambitions expressed by the work and how this relates to historic and contemporary thought in the visual arts and cultural heritage.

Cultural entrepreneurship:
The advisory committee assesses this on the basis of your investigative and/or innovative approach, the manner in which you present yourself to the outside world and engage in finding and binding an audience to your work.

Plans and visibility:
In addition to the quality of the work already completed, expectations about the further development of your work and the envisioned effect of the residency also play a role. The advisory committee therefore considers your plans and motivation of great importance. It is important that you make clear how you wish to use this grant, what plans you have for new work or research and how you believe the working period will contribute to your artistic development and to building up a new network.

This takes place through participation in artistic activities and theoretical debates, through weekly discussions with mentors and presentations that are open to the public. This programme helps artists to develop their work and their professional practices.

ZERO Foundation – Dusseldorf, Germany

For whom: curators, observers not over 35 years of age
For what: 1 six-month working period
When: 1 September 2022 – 28 February 2023
Application deadline: 5:00 PM, 2 May 2022

In collaboration with the ZERO Foundation in Düsseldorf, the Mondriaan Fund offers a six-month residency, specifically focused on curators and art observers who have been professionally active for at least one year and are not over 35 years of age.

For this residency, set up by the Mondriaan Fund in collaboration with the ZERO Foundation in Düsseldorf, arts researchers and independent curators are invited to submit a working plan that engages with contemporary visual arts in a way compatible with the vision of the ZERO Foundation. In the 1950s, a group of young artists came together in their shared search for radically new ways of making art with an optimistic, experimental and innovative attitude. In 1957, Heinz Mack, Günther Uecker and Otto Piene began ZERO. In the Netherlands, for example, it inspired the Nul-group, which included Armando, Jan Henderikse, Henk Peeters, Jan Schoonhoven and Herman de Vries. The results of the ZERO residency are made known by way of a presentation, lecture or other form of public programme. The development of the practice of the researcher or curator is central, while additional interchange between the Netherlands and Nordrhein-Westfalen (NRW), in whatever form that might take, is encouraged.

The state of Nordrhein-Westfalen is Germany’s most densely populated region and, thanks to its industry, one of Germany’s most important innovative and economic driving forces. Including such artistic centres as Kunstsammlung NRW, K21, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Museum Folkwang, Museum Ludwig, Marta Herford, Dortmunder U, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, the Stoschek Collection and the various Kunstverein art associations, NRW boasts an outstanding artistic infrastructure.

Information about ZERO Foundation

For whom

The residency at ZERO can be applied for by curators and art observers who have been professionally active for at least two years and are no more than 35 years old. It is important that the resident has a basic working knowledge of the German language.

During the working period, discussions are organized with artists who live and work in London. Portfolios are discussed with curators and a networking lunch is held every two weeks. Residents are expected to take part in these activities.

Applicants to the Delfina Foundation residencies are not asked to delineate a concrete project proposal in advance, but they do need to submit a clear motivation, explaining why they wish to take part in this programme, what kind of research they wish to conduct during their residency and how this research can contribute to Delfina Foundation’s ongoing programme.

Instituto Buena Bista, Curaçao

Who: visual artists and curators / observers
What: 4 working periods of 4 months each
When:

  • 1 September 2022 – 31 December 2022
  • 1 January 2023 – 30 April 2023
  • 1 May 2023 – 31 August 2023
  • 1 September 2023 – 31 December 2023

Application deadline: 2 May 2022, 5:00 PM Central European Time

Instituto Buena Bista, or IBB, founded by David Bade and Tirzo Martha, is a platform for contemporary arts on Curaçao. The IBB aims to be a source of inspiration for existing art forms and folklore expression on the island, while at the same time revealing new paths that art is taking on the world stage.

The social aspect of the IBB is evident in all its projects, ranging from exhibitions, lectures and art history research to workshops with the local population and with psychiatric patients – an important factor. The context of its location on the grounds of a psychiatric institution makes the profile of the IBB unique. Instituto Buena Bista currently has four studios: one for artists / curators residing in the Netherlands, one for artists from other countries and one for a local artist while the fourth studio is used on an annual basis by a young filmmaker, usually from the Caribbean region.

The Instituto Buena Bista residency is intended to highlight as broad a range of visions as possible on Curaçao. In the first place, the residency offers a working period in which the resident can develop and execute his or her new plans. The resident is asked to contribute to broadening the field of vision, the references and choices of students attending the IBB’s orientation course, annually 25 to 35 young people between the ages of 15 and 25. This can vary from organizing a series of classes, a site-specific project or an intervention in public space, to giving lectures. The IBB might ask a resident to collaborate in an exchange with other artists-in-residence in the Caribbean region. Our Junior-Senior exchanges were initiated in 2012. In close consultation with the resident in question and partner institutes on other islands in the region, a short stay at one of these institutes may prove fruitful for the IBB resident. The IBB selects one or two students to complete a site-specific project at a selected location together with the IBB resident.

Previous IBB residents include Mette Sterre, Karolien Helweg & Ruben la Cruz, Mariëlle Videler, Yasser Ballemans, Frank Koolen, Hadassah Emmerich, Pieter Joost Bruyniks, Jasper de Beijer and Steven Jouwersma.

AIR Berlin Alexanderplatz – Germany

For whom: visual artists and curators or observers
For what: 4 working periods of 4 months each
When:

  • 1 September – 31 December 2022
  • 1 January  – 30 April 2023
  • 1 May  – 31 August 2023

Deadline: 2 May 2022, 5:00 PM Central European Time

AIR Berlin Alexanderplatz, the artist-in-residence location in Berlin, was founded in 2010 by artists Susanne Kriemann and Aleksander Komarov. Having been artists in residence themselves, Kriemann and Komarov discovered that they subsequently missed a platform that stimulates investigative research and offers support in establishing and maintaining contacts in the city. For this reason, AIR Berlin Alexanderplatz (ABA) is a residency that puts extra emphasis on the production of knowledge. They do this for their residents by way of substantive and practical support and by providing direct connections to an extensive and focused network in Berlin.

An essential part of an ABA residency are the ‘salons’, which the residents shape together with the ABA team. The salons offer a foundation for presenting artistic research at widely varying locations in Berlin. Sociological and political themes that relate to the work of the residents are discussed here with specialists from the Berlin arts and culture scene.

Earlier ABA residents include Eric Peter, Igor Sevcuk, Anna Dasovic, Phelim Hoey, Zippora Elders, Ehsan Fardjadniya and artist duos Bik van der Pol and Lonnie van Brummelen/Siebren de Haan.
