Artist in Residence 2019 w Wiedniu i Salzburgu - 50 programów rezydencyjnych dla artystek i artystów różnych dziedzin sztuki

Call for Applications for the Artist-in-Residence-Programme 2019

In co-operation with KulturKontakt Austria, the Austrian Federal Chancellery makes
available 50 residencies in Austria (Vienna and Salzburg) for the year 2019. Foreign
artists can apply for this grant programme electronically via the www.artists-inresidence-
austria.at platform.

The residency is designed to offer an opportunity to familiarise oneself with the
Austrian art scene and cultural environment and to make contact with Austrian artists.
Residents are expected to complete a project during their stay. In the field of cultural
education, the stay is primarily designed to foster exchanges and networking and not
the realisation of a project.
During their stay, the artists in residence will be made familiar with the art scene and
cultural environment. Activities on offer include visits at galleries, studios and
museums, contacts to the literature and publishing sector, as well as access to
Vienna’s music life. Whenever possible, the residents will receive free tickets for art
and book fairs, the international ImPuls Tanz dance festival and other events.
During their stay in Salzburg, the artists in residence will be taken care of by
Kunstverein Salzburg. Residencies in Salzburg are only available for artists from the
fields of the visual arts, artistic photography and media art.
There is the possibility of participating actively in the Artists-in-Residence-go-to-
School-Programme of KulturKontakt Austria (the programme includes workshops at
Austrian schools).
This call is open to foreign artists whose permanent place of residence is outside of
Austria and who have completed their training. Austrian citizens cannot apply for this
programme.
A high level of proficiency in English or German is required in order to enable
participants to engage in a creative dialogue in an international context.
Participants are obliged to submit a final report about their stay.
The age limit for applicants is 40 years, i.e. the applicants’ date of birth has to be
after December 31, 1978. If an application is submitted by a duo at least one of the
artists has to be born after December 31, 1978, and the artistic career of both
individuals must be presented.

Artists who have already participated in artist-in-residence-programmes organised by
KulturKontakt Austria, the Austrian Federal Chancellery or the Austrian Federal
Ministry of Education, the Arts and Culture are not eligible for participation.
The artists in residence will be selected by sector-specific expert juries.
When submitting an application, applicants agree to parts of their application file (CV
and examples of work) being forwarded to third parties for the purpose of organising
exhibitions, readings, concerts, lectures etc.
