ERSTE Foundation residencies in Vienna - open to artists from Central, East, Southeast Europe
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS 2020 now open for the Artists-in-Residence programme of ERSTE Foundation, tranzit, Igor Zabel Association and Kontakt Collection at Q21/MuseumsQuartier in Vienna (Q21/MQ AIR) which is open to artists, curators and theoreticians from Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia and Croatia working in the field of contemporary art.
The programme is part of ERSTE Foundation’s long-termed endeavour to support contemporary art and to strengthen the situation of its creators, especially in the region of Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. The Q21/MQ AIR program is realized together with tranzit, Igor Zabel Association (IZA) and Kontakt Collection. Kontakt will collaborate with the Zagreb based WHW Akademija.
The residencies are designed for artists, curators and theoreticians from Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia and Croatia working in the field of contemporary art to do research in their respective area. The research character of the residence should make it possible to take a break from the everyday strenuous production pressure and find time to concentrate on a specific interest. The participants are given the opportunity to live and work for the period of two months in one of the Q21 studios at MuseumsQuartier right in the heart of Vienna. The apartments offer both living and working space, but do not provide room for large-scale artistic works.
During the stay various meeting possibilities are offered to the participants. Each residence grants a monthly stipend of EUR 1.050,-.
Artists, curators or theoreticians from Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovak Republic and Slovenia are invited to take part in the open call.
The participants from Croatia will be selected through a closed call in collaboration with WHW Akademija/Zagreb.
Together with its long-time project partners from tranzit.cz, tranzit.hu, tranzit.ro, tranzit.sk, Igor Zabel Association and Kontakt Collection, ERSTE Foundation forms the jury to select the participants.
Deadline for applications: September 22, 2019
