A position at KIND known as ‘the Artist in Residence’ will be offered annually to an artist with an outstanding reputation. The Artist-in-Residence fellowship offers a talented international artist working in the fields of conceptual art, visual art, photography, music, design, dance, film, or theatre an opportunity to work on a project within the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft.
He/she will be invited to come to KIND for a period of about 3 months, in which he/she will have the opportunity to closely interact with the scientists at the institute, join in work discussions, experience lab work, and the like. The expectation is that the Artist-in-Residence fellowship will result in a piece of art that relates to the nanoscience at KIND.
