BEAR - Base for Experiment, Art & Research in Arnhem

Part of ArtEZ University of the Arts, BEAR is a unique BA Fine Art program. The course was founded in 2013 based on an unshakeable belief that the power of art lies in imagination, experiment and the coexistence of different perspectives. Today’s art is as complex and diverse as the world we live in. In this world, art stands out because it does not conform to the prevailing models, but questions and researches them. At the same time, art connects with the world: it is part of it, comments on it and intervenes in it. In a history still being written, BEAR has taken position amongst the most forward looking Fine Art BA programs and built a formidable reputation for its commitment to socially engaged practices. At BEAR we put a strong emphasis on community and forms of collective practice and learning. This is manifest both within the way we function together as faculty and the research projects we choose to take on as a department. 


The closing date for applications is the 21st of November 2021. The interview round takes place on November 25th.
