Juncal Ballestín International Research Grant 2023

From: Tuesday, 13 December 2022

To: Tuesday, 31 January 2023

The Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basque Country, Artium Museoa, announces the Juncal Ballestín International Research Grant to support research projects on the historiography of feminist art and on women artists linked to the museum’s collection.

Affiliated to the Research and Documentation Centre for Basque Women Artists, Feminist Artistic Practices and Art Theories, the aim of this call is to select a research project that contributes meaningful content to the historiography of feminist art within the context of both the Basque Country and internationally and/or that analyses the production of women artists and thinkers linked to the museum’s programme and its collection. The terms and conditions for participation can be found on Artium Museoa’s website.
The call is open to researchers of any nationality, regardless of age, either individually or as members of a group submitting a joint application. Applicants must present an unpublished research project to be developed during the period covered by the grant, which will be nine consecutive months from the date of acceptance.

The maximum amount allocated for conducting the research is 7,000 euros, which is intended to cover the fees of the researchers and the expenses arising from developing the research. The deadline for applications is 31 January 2023. The selection committee will take into account the interest of the project, the professional background of the applicant and the suitability of the research proposal with regard to Artium Museoa’s objectives.

Visit Artium Museoa’s website or send an email to ikerketa_investigacion@artium.eus for more information and to consult the terms and conditions of the call.

The Research and Documentation Centre for Basque Women Artists, Feminist Artistic Practices and Art Theories stems from the museum’s commitment to the present and the history of art, as well as to its mission of including more women artists and feminist theorists in the narratives of this discipline in a crosscutting manner through its fields of action.

Some of the centre’s objectives are to collect, preserve and disseminate documentation and archives of Basque women artists and women artists and thinkers linked to the museum’s collection and its programmes, as well as to identify and disseminate bibliographical and documentary sources that contribute to research on feminist artistic practice and thought.

This international research grant organised by Artium Museoa is named after the artist Juncal Ballestín (Vitoria-Gasteiz, 1953-2015). Ballestín’s life was marked by her feminist commitment, developing a body of work that was characterised by the variety of materials, media and techniques she used: painting, drawing, installation, video, graphic work and so on. In 2021, the museum received a donation of the artist’s work and archive from the Anesvad NGO, heir to her legacy. In that same year, the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basque Country created the research grant that bears her name to commemorate her and for which a new call for applications has now been announced.
