The Future of European Independent Art Spaces in a Period of Socially Engaged Art – FEINART

FEINART is a University of Wolverhampton coordinated Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN (Innovative Training Network) Early Stage Reseachers’ (ESRs) programme (grant number 860306; project value, €3,046,837.32), which will start in March 2020. This major project is an extensive collaboration between degree-awarding research-centres in political philosophy, art theory/practice and curatorial studies/arts management, and the independent European art sector, as the basis for the first interdisciplinary and holistic investigation of the democratic role and function of socially engaged art in Europe. In this it will train 11 ESRs in order to provide the relevant academic and non-academic skills to engage with the challenges of this new artistic and cultural landscape.

The Competition will run from 09:00 (UK time) on 16 December 2019 (Opening Date) to 23:59 (UK time) on 31 January 2019 (Closing Date) inclusive.

The prize is an Amazon voucher of the value of £200.

  1. The competition
  • The title of the competition is FEINART Project – Logo Design Competition (Competition)
  • The logo should reflect on the three key components of the project: firstly and crucially, the production, reception and funding of socially engaged art in relation to the European independent art sector; secondly, its pan European dimension (UK, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Poland, Netherlands, Romania, Sweden, Greece); thirdly, its interdisciplinary character across subject areas (political philosophy, art practice/theory, and curating/art administration). For further details please see below.

FEINART (The Future of European Independent Art Spaces in a Period of Socially Engaged Art) is a University of Wolverhampton coordinated Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN (Innovative Training Network) Early Stage Reseachers’ (ESRs) programme (grant number 860306; project value, €3,046,837.32). The project is an extensive collaboration between degree-awarding research-centres in political philosophy, art theory/practice and curatorial studies/arts management, and the independent European art sector, as the basis for the first interdisciplinary and holistic investigation of the democratic role and function of socially engaged art in Europe. In this it will train 11 ESRs in order to provide the relevant academic and non-academic skills to engage with the challenges of this new artistic and cultural landscape. The 11 ESRs will be spread across four academic Beneficiaries (University of Wolverhampton, University of Iceland, University of Edinburgh, Zeppelin University, Germany) and 7 Partner Organizations (Tensta Konstall, Sweden; BAK, Netherlands; State of Concept, Greece; W-Est, Italy; Tranzit.ro, Romania; Biennale Warsawa, Poland, and the Iceland University of the Arts, Iceland). The training programme will provide invaluable data about the distribution, impact, and role of socially engaged art as a future contribution to funding policy recommendations on state support of art beyond the museum’s traditional functions, and debates on art and public culture.
