Goethe Institute Fellowship | Documenta Institute

Deadline September 07, 2020


The Goethe Institute, the Documenta Archive, and the Kunsthochschule Kassel (University of the Arts Kassel) /University of Kassel are launching their joint fellowship program for international scientists, researching artists, and curators at the Documenta Institute. 

Twice a year, starting in October 2020, one fellowship holder each–preferably from non-European countries or European countries comparatively underrepresented in the art context–will be invited to Kassel for a period of six months to conduct their research in relation to Documenta. International fellows will benefit from a wealth of materials on Documenta history and on modern and contemporary art stored at the Documenta Archive, as well as from the exchange with the teams of the Documenta archive, the Documenta Institute (under development), the Kunsthochschule Kassel, the University of Kassel, and their academic environments. Public events or publications in Kassel and–if possible–also in the fellows' countries of origin, will lend visibility to the fellows' research and perspective.
