The Institute of Art History at Freie Universität Berlin invites applications for one full-time post-doctoral position and two doctoral positions (65%) for the duration of five years within the ERC research project “Art Academies in China: Global Histories and Institutional Practices” (CHINACADEMY), funded through a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council.

The project investigates art academies, their global histories and institutional practices as the most significant actors in modern Chinese art. It aims at a new understanding of the aesthetic, social, and political conditions of artistic creation in modern and contemporary China. Tracing the transnational connections to Japan, France, the Soviet Union, and other regions, it shows how institutional structures and artistic practices were adapted to the requirements of Chinese society in acts of cultural translation. Three academies will serve as case studies: The Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, and the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts. The integration of ink painting into the academic system will be the subject of a fourth case study.
