Award 2013, Eindhoven

The recipient of the 2013 Visible Award is The Silent University, an autonomous knowledge exchange platform by and for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants. It is led by a group of lecturers, consultants, and research fellows. Each group contributes to the program in different ways, which include course development, specific research on key themes as well as personal reflections on what it means to be a refugee and asylum seeker. This platform will be presented using the format of an academic program. To know more about the project, go here.



On occasion of its second edition, the Visible Award evolves its project and seeks an innovative approach that passes through a more transparent methodology around its jury session which takes form during a public event at the museum.

The ten projects discussed during the public jury session have been shortlisted among a list of 34 art projects nominated by the 2013 Visible advisory board and the 48 projects received, for the first time, through an open call.

On December 14, the prestigious, interdisciplinary jury, chaired by Charles Esche, gathered together at the Vanabbemuseum to assess the merits of the 10 shortlisted projects and select the recipient of the 2013 Visible Award. Next, to the five invited jury members, the audience of the event represents the sixth member of the jury and will be able to put in a public vote.
