ENSAPC seeks a Visiting professor

Einreichfrist: 06. Mai 2018
A public institution offering postsecondary education in art under the supervision of the French Ministry of Culture, the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Paris-Cergy (ENSAPC) trains creative artists, authors, directors, and performers for active careers on the international scene.
ENSAPC offers 3- and 5-year degrees (bachelor and master), as well as postgraduate programs, offered in collaboration with institutional partners in the United States and Canada as well as the Triennale SUD and the Doual’art centre in Cameroon. A doctoral program in artistic practice is being developed in partnership with components of the Université Paris Seine (www.universiteparisseine.fr).
Fully embracing transversality in experience, field, style, and medium, ENSAPC’s student-centred approach to teaching covers a wide range of disciplines spanning the visual arts, writing, the performing arts, film, and critical theory in collaboration with partners in France and abroad. To encourage a critical approach to contemporary challenges, ENSAPC is mobile, responsive, questioning, and attentive to new fields of knowledge that enable exploration of new territory.
Openness to the world, intercultural dialogue, and international cooperation are part of ENSAPC’s institutional policy. Each year the school welcomes students and faculty from around the world (nearly a quarter of ENSAPC’s students are from outside France) and organizes numerous individual and joint projects in France and abroad that involve members of the ENSAPC faculty in research and curriculum development, often jointly with other institutions.

The visiting professor will join the 27-member ENSAPC faculty for a contractual period of 9 months, beginning in October 2018. He or she will interact with students enrolled in the first through fifth years in workshops, studio sessions, seminars, and other learning events in close cooperation with the rest of the faculty. He or she will participate in assessment seminars conducted by coordination teams responsible for monitoring and facilitating student progress. He or she may become involved in ENSAPC’s research programmes.

The successful candidate will be a recognized, creative visual artist, curator and/or theorist with an active record of research in the field of artistic creativity. Candidates will have exhibited or presented their work in internationally recognized contemporary art settings. They must speak and may teach in English. Mastery of French is not required.
ENSAPC wishes to take advantage of the qualities that balanced gender distribution and cultural diversity bring to its activities and welcomes applicants who can contribute to that balance.
