2020-2021 Fellowships / Artist Residency “Africa Multiple”
The Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence at the University of Bayreuth (Germany) invites artists from African (continental or diasporic) contexts to apply for fellowships in the Bayreuth Academy of Advanced African Studies.
In the academic year 2020-2021, the Bayreuth Academy offers two fellowships in cooperation with Iwalewahaus. These are designed to enable artists from African continental or diasporic contexts to pursue projects of significance to the Cluster’s intellectual agenda while immersed in a vibrant community of researchers coming from more than fifteen academic disciplines, as well as other artists. Fellows will be in residence for a period ranging from one to six months, during which they will carry out their research in an efficiently managed environment with excellent working conditions.
Should you be interested in applying, please read the information about the Cluster’s theoretical and thematic agendas available at www.africamultiple.uni-bayreuth.de. All proposals should demonstrate the candidate’s commitment to the Cluster’s agenda of reconfiguring African Studies and its core concepts of multiplicity, relationality and reflexivity, convincingly reflecting relevant aspects of gender and diversity, while detailing their intended contributions to one (or possibly more) of the Cluster’s Research Sections. Please also state how aspects of diversity will be interrogated in your artistic project.
The application process is facilitated through an online form (available in early June) that also allows you to upload the required documents: Link will follow shortly
The closing date is June 30, 2020, 23:59 CEST.
Please contact Robert Debusmann, the coordinator of the Bayreuth Academy, for further information and questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
