Grants & Gifts

We are pleased to consider requests and applications for grants from people and groups involved with critical research projects in our 3 areas of interest, especially especially "unprofitable" projects centered on archives, documentation, bibliographic and "open access" online database issues. In general we prefer slow, patient, ongoing, critical but quiet projects as opposed to noisy ones. Normally we only offer matching grants. Note we do not provide grants for art exhibitions or artist's projects. For more information please contact us at




To date -we have only just begun- we have provided "seed" money and/or gifts to the following projects:


- Primary Information, New York ( Primary Information was formed in 2006 by Miriam Katzeff and James Hoff to foster inter-generational dialogue through the publication of artists’ books and writings, with an emphasis on the conceptual practice begun in the mid sixties and the strategy of using publications as an extension of this practice. For more information click here.


- Kunstverein, Amsterdam ( is a non-profit curatorial office that offers presentations, lectures, screenings and independent publishing. Its purpose is to create a critical pool of ideas which explores public-private relationships in the art world by reflecting on current art practices and alternative methods of presentation, hosting and exhibition making. For more information click here.


- The contemporary culture index, the ccindex (, is an open-access multidisciplinary bibliographical database indexing international journals and periodicals. Its aim is to cover the growing need for specialized information not limited to any academic category nor to a geographical or linguistic area, especially concerning architecture, art, cinema, cultural studies, design, literature, music, philosophy, photography and social sciences. Aware that complete coverage is impossible, ccindex has opted for a rigorous selection based on research quality; important aims are to bring together materials that are seldom juxtaposed in order to favor new research approaches, and to index small and influential publications that are no longer published, especially those originating from artists or cultural producers rather than solely from conventional academic processes. For more information click here


- The Museum of Modern Art, New York ( Seth Siegelaub and the Stichting Egress Foundation have donated the Seth Siegelaub Archives to the Library & Archives Department of the museum (for more information  click here), and 4 early major art works of Robert Barry, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Kosuth and Lawrence Weiner to the museum's art collection (for more information click here)
