Joint residency Kunsthuis SYB and the Centre for Philosophy and the Visual Arts

Kunsthuis SYB and The Centre for Philosophy and Visual Arts, are proud to announce a continuation of their joint residency programme. This two-stage residency is an exciting opportunity for artists with an existing interest or curiosity in philosophy to be included in university life, attend the lecture series they applied for, and develop their research, after which they will be awarded time in Kunsthuis SYB to develop (a) new piece(s) of work.

Visual artists working in any discipline or media are invited write a proposal in response to a topic discussed one of two lecture series. The Search For Meaning, led by Christopher Hamilton, discusses the human condition in light of philosophical and literatury sources. The Ethics of Migration, by Sarah Fine, offers an overview of key debates about the ethics of migration in contemporary political philosophy.

For more information about what this residency offers, please download the info pack. To apply, please email us a completed application form, along with a CV and up to 5 images, by midnight on Friday the 3rd of November. We will aim to make our final selection by the 1st of December.
