Open Call: residency Van Doesburghuis 2021 in Paris
In the studio house that Theo van Doesburg designed for himself and his wife Nelly in the late 1920s, makers and intermediaries – ranging from a director, curator, screenwriter, researcher, architect to a maker of digital culture – can carry out research, develop ideas or create new work in the fields of film, design and digital culture.
Makers and intermediaries in the disciplines of film, design and digital culture can submit a proposal. It is possible to apply as an individual applicant or as a duo (two makers, or a maker and an observer, who make work together on a structural basis). Partnerships can be considered as a duo, if they submit a joint plan for the working period that leads to a single result. In line with Theo and Nelly's interdisciplinary practice and multifaceted artistic expression, a collaboration with an applicant from another discipline is also possible. At least one maker or observer in the duo works within the film, design and/or digital culture sector. Please note that when applying as a duo or partnership, both must complete a form separately. Deadline for application is 7 August 2021.
Since 2017, by means of open calls, the Creative Industries Fund NL, the Netherlands Film Fund, the Performing Arts Fund, the Mondriaan Fund and the Dutch Foundation for Literature have jointly offered a residency at the Van Doesburghuis in Meudon-Val-Fleury just outside Paris, where makers can further develop their artistic practice. The Mondriaan Fund acts as the coordinator of the application procedure.
This call offers two working periods of four months. The periods of residence on offer are 7 November 2021 to 1 March 2022 or 6 March to 26 June 2022. Applications can be submitted until 7 August 2021.
