WHO: individuals whose work advances the discourse on art and politics.
WHAT: the Vera List Center for Art and Politics invites applications for the 2011-2013 Vera List Center Fellowships. Two fellowships will be awarded, each spanning ten months and tied to the Vera List Center's focus theme for 2011-2013.
The fellowships provide the opportunity to further develop such work drawing from the resources of The New School, to expand on it in collaboration with students and classes, and to bring it to the public through the Vera List Center's interdisciplinary public programs.
The center's initiatives evolve around focus themes of particular urgency and broad resonance. In the face of virtual realities, social media and disembodied existences, the center in 2011-2013 will examine the nature of our material world under the heading of "thingness." It will focus on the material conditions of our lives, and call for a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between objects and people, that may provoke more responsible, ethical and ecologically sound politics. Over the course of four semesters, thingness will be dissected and thematic program clusters will be formed around topics such as forensics, ecology, speculative materialism, and biology. The Vera List Center Fellows contribute to the intellectual foundation of the center, and through their fellowship projects advance the understanding of the focus theme.
WHEN: 2011 - 2013.
PAYMENTS: the fellowship is part-time, non-residential, and carries a US$10,000 stipend. Fellows have access to the libraries of The New School and New York University as well as to a wide range of activities throughout the university. Meetings and informal gatherings with New School faculty and other constituencies are organized throughout the year.
