TitelICI Fellowships 2009/10
BeschreibungThe ICI Berlin announces the following fellowships for 2009-10 as part of its inaugural core project Tension/Spannung:

3-5 fellowships which can be either regular (10 months) or short term (3 months, especially intended for curators and artists).

The Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry (ICI) is an independent centre dedicated to bringing diverse cultures and discourses into productive confrontation. The ICI formulates core projects that run over several years and form a starting point for resident fellows to work through common, focused questions.

The ICI's inaugural core project is called Tension/Spannung. The expression ‘tension’ appears in manifold contexts with diverse
meanings. We speak of social, religious, electrical, sexual, and creative tension. In all these cases, tension refers to a static but unstable state. Such a state is on the verge of a dynamic process that may be destructive as well as productive. Tension provides the condition for transformations, but determines neither their beginning nor outcome. As a state of undecided potentiality, tension promises us agency and demands our involvement, while also captivating us aesthetically. By exploring the critical role of tension, the ICI’s inaugural project also seeks to reflect upon the Institute’s mission.

The ICI invites scholars, curators and artists from all disciplines to link their individual projects to the topic of Tension/Spannung and to engage in a joint exploration with other fellows at the institute.

The productive exchange between fellows is a central aim of the ICI. The fellowships are therefore aimed at scholars, artists and curators interested in reflecting upon the conceptual and intellectual basis of their projects and discussing them with fellows from various academic disciplines. In particular, fellows will be expected to participate in the activities of the ICI and to be resident in Berlin for the duration of the fellowship.

Regular fellowships are for ten months beginning 14 September 2009 and may be renewable for one additional year. Short-term fellowships are for three months beginning 14 September 2009, 11 January 2010 or 26 April 2010. Depending on the degree held, stipends range from EUR 1100 to 1650 per month.

Applicants from all disciplines holding a university degree are welcome. There is no age limit, but due to German fellowship
regulations fellows must have completed their education (BA, MA, PhD, or Habil) within ten years of the date of appointment.

Interested applicants should consult the application instructions at and send their application by e-mail only to the address indicated there.

Application deadline: February 22, 2009
