INDEPENDENT STUDY PROGRAMME

Call 2023

Applications are invited for the 2023 Maumaus Independent Study Programme, which will run from 12 January until 27 July 2023.

The intense Programme runs for 27 weeks (312 contact 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 twenty two 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 Ed Atkins, Gerry Bibby, Manthia Diawara, Loretta Fahrenholz, Renée Green, Florian Hecker, Judith Hopf, Erica Love/João Enxuto, Uriel Orlow, Christodoulos Panayiotou, João Penalva, Simon Thompson and Fredrik Værslev; art historians Sabeth Buchmann, Helmut Draxler, Toni Hildebrandt, Ilse Lafer, Gertrud Sandqvist and Kerstin Stakemeier; philosophers Stefanie Baumann, Bojana Cvejić, Alexander García Düttmann, Michael Marder, Alberto Toscano, Sjoerd van Tuinen and Giovanbattista Tusa; sociologists Avery F. Gordon and Marcel Stoetzler; anthropologist Filip De Boeck; writer Alan Read; and social theorists Brenna Bhandar, Ruth Wilson Gilmore and Manuela Ribeiro Sanches. Studio visits will allow the practitioners to develop their work through discussions with Gerry Bibby, Jürgen Bock, Judith Hopf, Uriel Orlow, Christodoulos Panayiotou, João Penalva, Simon Thompson and Fredrik Værslev.

Applicants should take into consideration:
• Applications should be sent via email to maumaus@maumaus.org (submissions accepted until 4 September 2022).
• 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 (online for international applicants) 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 12 January, running until 27 July 2023, 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
