Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten

Supporting promising talent

Developing talent at the highest level. KPN fully supports this mission of the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten (National academy of fine arts). That’s why we contribute to a program that helps up-and-coming artists and we organize a biennial art prize.

As a sponsor, KPN offers talented artists the opportunity to work at the Rijksakademie. In 2012, we chose Roderick Hietbrink, who made an impression with, amongst other things, his video ‘The Living Room’. In subsequent years, he was followed by artists Mascha Ru and Kate Cooper.

About the Rijksakademie

The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam focuses on developing talent in the visual arts. It selects and facilitates top talent and offers the chosen artists a platform for further development and strengthening of their work. For many former fellows, a residency at the Rijksakademie led to an international breakthrough.
