The European Investment Bank (EIB) Institute is pleased to announce the 2023 edition of its Artists Development Programme (ADP) in collaboration with Cité internationale des arts (Paris), for which it is looking for TWO visual artist (born after 1 January 1988) from an EU Member State to work on the theme “Disruption: The Imprint of Man”.
“Disruption: The Imprint of Man” aims to offer a unique vantage point on the Anthropocene. Building on the past residency theme “Anthropocene — The Imprint of Man” (2014-2017), “Disruption” broadens the focus beyond the environment to include topical social issues in the European Union: the decline of solidarity and respect as values, generational clashes, and the meaning of intra and international relations. Artists are invited to meditate on human behaviour and its consequences. “Disruption” is therefore understood not only in its physical sense, but also as a social, cultural and behavioural phenomenon.
The ADP offers a three-month residency (September 4–November 27) at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris, enabling them to develop their practice and create a new (body of) work(s). In 2023, the recipients will be mentored by acclaimed Franco-Italian artist Tatiana Trouvé.
Born after 1 January 1988 (in the case of an artist duo, both members must be aged 35 or under)
EU nationals (in the case of an artist duo, both members must be EU nationals)

Budget and duration
The EIB Institute will cover the artist’s travel costs to and from Paris. The artist will receive an 80 EUR flat-rate daily allowance to cover their living costs during the residency and all or part of the production costs, and will be provided with a live-in studio space. In addition, the artist will be granted a contribution towards production of 500 EUR and a success fee of 1,000 EUR. Upon completion of the residency, the EIB may consider acquiring an artwork produced on-site by the artist.
