Delfina Foundation (UK) > European ArtEast Foundation research grants

European ArtEast Foundation (EAEF), in collaboration with Delfina Foundation, is inviting proposals for grants for research focused on Eastern European artists working in the region in the 1950s and 1960s. The purpose of these grants is to give art historians and curators the opportunity to carry out ambitious research projects that will make a significant contribution to the field of art history in Eastern Europe. EAEF’s goal is to stimulate a nuanced understanding of the history and legacy of modernism in Eastern Europe and to bring attention to overlooked artists who were important in their time but had no international exposure due to the specific political context.

The call is primarily to academic researchers in art history and curators, although artists or researchers from other disciplines can apply where they can demonstrate that the proposal contributes to an art historical context. The organisers are keen to encourage fresh ideas from new researchers and appropriate proposals are welcomed from those with limited research experience.

The applicant can be based anywhere.

Doctoral and post-doctoral researchers are eligible to apply as are researchers applying on behalf of cultural or academic institutions.

EAEF will award up to three research grants of between £3000 and £6000.

Proposals should outline how the grant will be spent; eligible expenses include researcher fees / salary costs, travel and subsistence.

Deadline: 4 June 2018
