Call for Papers Sculptuur Studies

Museum Beelden aan Zee is unique in the Netherlands for its focus on modern and contemporary sculpture. Museum Beelden aan Zee is the host for Sculptuur Instituut. Sculptuur Instituut is the in-house research institute, containing a research library on the subject of modern and contemporary sculpture of about 14000 books. It is led by the director Jan Teeuwisse, professor of modern and contemporary sculpture at Leiden University. Three of the curators are currently working on PhD-theses, on subjects covering sculpture from the nineteenth century till now.

Sculptuur Insituut's publishing outlets are divided between two series: The series Monografieën van het Sculptuur Instituut [Monographs of the Sculptuur Instituut] and the series Sculptuur Studies [Sculpture studies]. This last series is the main focus of this call for papers.

In this series, Sculptuur Instituut wishes to invite young researchers to submit any text, as long as its related to sculpture and the period 1800-now. No geographical limits are imposed. As a guidance, we intend to ask for a maximum of 5000 words in the body text, but this word count is negotiable.
We intend to publish a sound research text on our website ( We intend to review your text and to edit and design in our style; we intend to have qualitative and interesting texts on sculpture in our publication.

Sculptuur Studies will not be printed in paper.
