INDEPENDENT STUDY PROGRAMME

Call 2021

Applications are invited for the 2021 Maumaus Independent Study Programme, which will run from 7 January 2021 until 23 July 2021. The intense Programme runs for 27 weeks (312 hours) and is devised and organised by the art theorist and curator Jürgen Bock (director of the Maumaus School and Residency Programme and its associated exhibition space Lumiar Cité). The Programme is open to a maximum of eighteen participants (artists or art-related researchers or other professionals). The Programme is designed to encourage the participants to analyse and develop their art practice in a stimulating, intellectually rigorous, yet informal environment. The Programme creates a context for the internalisation of comprehension and knowledge through discussion and critical thinking.

Besides regular classes of critical studies and group discussions, seminars, workshops and lectures will offer insights and multiple perspectives on current thinking inside and outside — but always in relation to — the field of art and are devised by a range of internationally renowned artists/film-makers such as Manthia Diawara, Loretta Fahrenholz, Renée Green, Florian Hecker, Judith Hopf, Erica Love/ João Enxuto, Lone Haugaard Madsen, Christodoulos Panayiotou, Simon Thompson, Fredrik Værslev and Emily Wardill; art historians Sabeth Buchmann, Helmut Draxler, Toni Hildebrandt, Elvira Dyangani Ose and Gertrud Sandqvist; philosophers Stefanie Baumann, Bojana Cvejić, Alexander García Düttmann, Michael Marder, Alberto Toscano, Sjoerd van Tuinen and Giovanni Tusa; sociologists Avery F. Gordon and Marcel Stoetzler; anthropologist Filip De Boeck; writer Alan Read; and cultural and political researchers Brenna Bhandar, Ruth Wilson Gilmore and Manuela Ribeiro Sanches. Studio visits will allow the enrolled artists to discuss and develop their work through discussions with Jürgen Bock, Lone Haugaard Madsen, Christodoulos Panayiotou, Simon Thompson, Fredrik Værslev and Emily Wardill.

Applicants should take into consideration:

• Applications should be sent via email to maumaus@maumaus.org (submissions accepted until 20 September 2020).
• Applications should include a motivation letter, a CV and a portfolio documenting examples of work the applicants consider most relevant to their current practice. An interview at the Maumaus office in Lisbon (for international applicants via Skype) will follow and will determine the final selection for acceptance on the Programme.
• The language of the ISP Maumaus is English.
• The administration of the ISP Maumaus provides foreign participants support for finding accommodation and studios in Lisbon, as well as support for obtaining a study visa, if necessary.
• The next edition of the ISP Maumaus starts on 7 January, running until 23 July 2021, with a one-week break at Carnival and a two-week spring break.
• Changes may occur during the course of the Programme.

For further information about the Programme and tuition fees, please contact the ISP office at maumaus@maumaus.org.

Ao descer a escada
Há um degrau p’ra me sentar.
Não há outro degrau
Onde descansar.
Não estou lá em baixo
Nem lá em cima estou.
Estou é na escada
Onde sempre estou.

Ao subir a escada
Não estou em cima, nem em baixo.
Não estou na creche,
Nem mesmo no sopé, acho.
Ideias estranhas começam a girar
Na minha cabeça
Fora do lugar!
