Schloss Balmoral visual arts fellowships 2015



International call for residential fellowships in 2015 at Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral in Bad Ems, Germany. Residencies are offered to visual artists (referencing Dada) and there is one international curator fellowship.

Residential fellowships in the Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral in Bad Ems, Germany are offered to international visual artists. Furthermore a curator fellowship is awarded to a junior academic graduate (requires mastery of German and English languages).

For international visual artists

The theme for the residential fellowships for 2015 is »Dada«. Since 2013, fellowships are offered in one artistic genre or one theme each year. This offering, which is unique in Germany, is intended to enable deeper mutual creative cross-fertilisation among the resident artists. It will also lead to a more intensive specialist exchange of ideas with external artists, speakers, teachers, curators, etc. For 2015, the Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral is awarding two 3-month residential fellowships and four 9-month residential fellowships.

For international fellows in the humanities

To foster dialogue between artistic work and theoretical reflection, Balmoral awards a residential curator fellowship to a fellow in the humanities (preferably art history). The curator fellowship is awarded to persons whose university degree (at least MA) was completed not more than five years ago. For the curator fellowship, mastery of the German language spoken and in writing as well as good knowledge of English is essential.

The fellowship lasts nine months and begins in June 2015. It is endowed with 1,400 EUR per month and includes free accommodation in the Kuenstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral.
