Open Call: Two Junior Fellowships at the University of Art and Design Linz
The University of Art and Design Linz
in Austria has issued a call for applications to two Junior Fellowships, open to PhD candidates at the VALIE EXPORT Center.
The VALIE EXPORT Center at the University of Art and Design Linz processes, researches, contextualizes, and mediates VALIE EXPORT’s premortem bequest. As an internationally oriented research center, it promotes an artistic and scientific confrontation with media art and performance art.
The planned doctoral thesis of the chosen applicants to the Junior Fellowships must deal with one of the two thematic fields:
1. In the context of a research focus on “art and language in artistic practice”
, linguistic-structuralist aspects in medial works should be studied on the basis of VALIE EXPORT’s oeuvre.
2. The relationship of art and science
should be examined based on the implementation of new technologies in artistic practice and their diverse possible applications in the field of artistic-scientific research. Starting point for this is VALIE EXPORT’s extensive oeuvre.
The fellowships are endowed with €1,200 per month each and will be initially awarded for twelve months, but can be extended for a maximum of an additional twenty-four months on the basis of a positive evaluation.
Applications deadline: 1 September 2019
