Terms and conditions

  • The artist, curator, art critic or art observer must have received an invitation from an internationally renowned contemporary visual art institution, platform, festival or symposium held abroad.
  • If you are applying as a curator, art critic, or art observer, the activity for which you are applying must be part of your independent practice.
  • It must be clear from the invitation that the institution, platform, festival or symposium is offering the artist, curator, art critic or art observer a fair remuneration for the lecture, workshop, performance or panel participation.
  • The contribution cannot be used for research trips linked to (the preparation of) an exhibition or presentation, nor can the contribution be used for activities associated with a commercial gallery or an art institution, platform, festival or symposium that is primarily focused on sales.
  • The contribution cannot be used for expenses for which an alternative Mondriaan Fund scheme is available.

Assessment

The submitted application and appendices will be checked for completeness. A simplified assessment procedure is used for applications for the Voucher International contribution. Applications will be assessed based upon:

  • The relevance of the lecture, performance, workshop or panel participation for the field.
  • The quality of the internationally renowned contemporary visual art institution, platform, festival or symposium.
  • The quality of the applicant’s artistic work.
  • Motivation: does the applicant’s lecture, workshop, performance, etc. help raise the visibility and international appreciation of relevant contemporary visual arts from the Netherlands and/or the Caribbean part of the Kingdom (does the activity transcend the personal interest of the applicant).

We also acknowledge the vital importance of distribution, and can therefore not accept all applications for the same event. The Voucher International contribution is granted following approval from the Mondriaan Fund Board. Whether the contribution is awarded or not has no further consequences for other applications to the Mondriaan Fund.
