The Festival Belluard Bollwerk International in Fribourg, Switzerland and Migros Culture Percentage are looking for new or nascent artistic projects on the subject „Fortress Europe“ to show in the festival’s main venue, a medieval fortress. Any form of artistic expression is admitted, the more interdisciplinary, the better.

An international jury will select the projects that will receive a production grant of 5.000 CHF to 10.000 CHF and will be produced in the frame of Belluard Festival (June 25th to July 4th 2015) in Fribourg, Switzerland.

Applications can be sent in by artists or practitioners from other fields working interdisciplinary; from Fribourg or the rest of the world; individuals or groups; with performative or installative projects or interventions connected to the thematic.

Read more about the theme: Fortress Europe

Belluard Bollwerk International is a contemporary arts festival. Since 1983 it has been creating open and creative spaces during 10 days at the beginning of summer for artists and audiences, for newcomers and established ones, for people from Fribourg and guests from all over the world.

The two main venues are the medieval bulwark, which gave the festival its name, and the Ancienne Gare. Here, as well as in other various places all over town, artistic projects of all genres and disciplines are presented. The basic rule is: the more it’s interdisciplinary, the Belluard!

The festival is producer and host alike. New creations from Fribourg are just as important as the presentation of selected guest productions. Each year, a call for artistic projects on a given topic is launched, with an international jury selecting projects to be produced within the frame of the festival.

Deadline: December 15 2014

Call for Papers on the theme: Religion, Network and Identity: The Chinese community in Vietnam for an academic research workshop to be held in Ho Chi Minh City on 26 December 2014. Selected researchers will be invited to join a Vietnam ethnographic research team on a 5 year project led by the National University of Singapore and the Max Planck Institute.

This workshop invites researchers whose work helps us to understand the pattern of connection between Chinese communities in Vietnam with China and how these connections have changed over the last century. How did a sequence of historical events such as the process of decolonization and state building, the division of North and South Vietnam, the Vietnam War, and especially the 1979 Sino-Vietnamese Border War affect these connections? How do the transformations in the religious life, and in local and transnational networks, change the way people of Chinese ethnic background in Vietnam identified themselves with the country as well as with China, their cultural homeland. How did different processes of identification in return influence their religious life and their connection within and beyond Vietnam?

This workshop aims to identify and select potential members for the Vietnam research team that will conduct ethnographic research over five years in sites across Vietnam. The workshop shall be held in Ho Chi Minh City on 26 December 2014. The application would consist of a CV and a brief paper (5-10 pages, on the topic of the project).

Deadline: 1 December 2014, to be sent to vanderveer@mmg.mpg.de

If your application is acceptable we would like you to prepare a 20 minute presentation at the workshop. After the workshop, presenters are invited to apply for research funding or full-time post-doctoral fellowship at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity in Göttingen to further their research in the topic. Their researches will be connected to a larger research project on the revitalization and transformation of religious networks of Overseas Chinese communities in Southeast Asia led by professor Kenneth Dean at National University of Singapore and Professor Peter van der Veer at Max Planck Institute.

The research team will meet in annual workshops, leading to final interdisciplinary conferences, in which new research findings and new theoretical insights will be developed into monographs and edited volumes. GIS maps of the network, with linked image databases and textual information, will be developed into an open, public, interactive and searchable website to allow stakeholders and the interested public to access information on the network. The project will reveal an unexpectedly complex and heterogeneous dimension of China’s interaction with Southeast Asia, beyond simplistic and nationalistic models of the spread of Chinese “soft power”.

maxplanckinst

Vietnam is one of the earliest areas of settlement of Chinese people in Southeast Asia. Migration flows have continued for centuries until over thirty years ago. Due to the country’s proximity with China, Chinese communities in different locales in Vietnam have maintained intimate relationship with their sending communities. There are however limited scholarly knowledge about these relationships and their transformations over the last few century.

The Fondation Galeries Lafayette is currently recruiting for the post of associate curator for a set period of three years, starting in February–March 2015. The Fondation Galeries Lafayette, the first institution dedicated to the production of contemporary art, design and fashion in France, will open in autumn 2016 in the heart of Paris, in a 19th-century building renovated by the architecture practice OMA.

Initiated by Guillaume Houzé, the Foundation will be a place for research, production, exhibition and discussion, working closely with international practitioners engaged with issues relevant to the world we live in. Until its launch, and since October 2013, the Foundation accompanies the production of artistic projects and develops an ambitious public programme in a temporary space located in the Marais neighbourhood.

Profile
The associate curator will join the Foundation’s curatorial platform, set up to valorise collective thinking. She or he will have significant knowledge of two of the three following fields—contemporary art, design and fashion—as well as of their international networks and current discourses. The candidate will have acquired relevant experience of working at the crossroads between these fields, and a capacity to generate interdisciplinary encounters via media including exhibitions, events, publications and the web. She or he will further demonstrate an ability to work in close dialogue with a team of curators and producers, as well as autonomously. The candidate will be an international curator based outside of France.

Deadline for applications: December 1 2014

Missions
In collaboration with the curatorial team and the Director, the associate curator will develop a world-class programme, conceiving group and monographic exhibitions, as well as curatorial projects which respond to the Foundation’s vision while investigating new territories. The candidate will also develop experimental forms and tools of engagement between artists and audiences, including young people. She or he will produce writing and compile and commission content for the Foundation’s publications and online resource, an important feature of the future institution. The associate curator will further contribute to carving a space for the Foundation on the international institutional and critical landscape, while making the institution relevant nationally and locally. She or he will seek and build partnerships with institutions internationally.

Practical
The associate curator will travel to Paris at regular intervals, working with the team onsite the equivalent of one week a month, in addition to the work carried out for the Foundation from her or his own city. Being part-time, the position enables the associate curator to continue with other part-time commitments. Speaking French isn’t a requirement, however the candidate should be fluent in English.

Candidates must send a cover letter and CV by Monday 1 December, 12pm, to Laurence Perrillat,lperrillat@galerieslafayette.com. Please write “Associate Curator Position” in the subject line.

The cover letter (maximum two sides of A4) should outline the applicant’s engagement with art, design and/or fashion, and how it has manifested in their work to date. Details of relevant experience are also required, alongside a description of the applicant’s current activities.

For further information on the Foundation, the role and how to apply, please visit www.fondationgalerieslafayette.com or contact the Foundation’s administrator Laurence Perrillat:
