Photography Research Fellowships at the Rijksmuseum

Hans Rooseboom writes... On behalf of Mattie Boom I would like to bring your attention to our current research opportunities within the Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme – in particular the new Terra Foundation Fellowship in American Photography.

Currently, we are preparing a major exhibition of American photographs—from the birth of the medium in 1839 to the present—in a wider context. Candidates are invited to submit a research proposal that links to the themes that were chosen for the upcoming exhibition: American landscapes, portraits, the private use of photographs, the application of photography in advertisement, fashion, politics, (decorative) utensils, and a number of social themes – from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement and from poverty to the experience of wars in the Homeland, as well as the relation of photography to modern art (especially after World War II).

We would be very grateful if you could forward the call for applications to potential candidates who, in your opinion, would be excellent candidates for this opportunity. The deadline for applications is 19 January 2020, and all Fellowships will start on 1 September 2020.
