Artist/Theorist in Residence – Open Call Spring 2015

We cordially invite all interested artists and theorists to apply for our upcoming artists in residence period in spring 2015, in cooperation with Kunsthalle Wien’s project “Destination Wien 2015”.

AIR Sping 2015 – Open Call 

Since spring 2013, studio das weisse haus offers residencies for young international artists, curators and theorists who work and/or have academic experience in the fields of fine art, photography or media art. This call is addressed to artists and theorists that want to conduct research on topics related  to our call during the spring residency. As we want the group of residents to be as diverse in terms of employed media as possible, we also encourage artists who work in performance and conceptual art as well as artists who use strategies of net art to apply for the program. Nevertheless, we want to emphasize that we do not favour one medium over another. studio das weisse haus will offer four spots for Artists in Residence and one spot for a Theorist in Residence.

As studio das weisse haus noticed that the applicants for our residency programs are often interested in the specific geopolitical and cultural coordinates of Vienna, we would like the residents of our spring residency period to elaborate on projects that concern themselves with Vienna’s geopolitical positioning and role, as well as questions of living together in Vienna.
studio das weisse haus publishes this call on the occasion of Kunsthalle Wien’s project “Destination Wien 2015 EXTENDED”, an exhibition project that is devoted to Vienna as a site of artistic production, and to Vienna as a very specific place, where people, disciplines and various approaches get confronted with each other, get in dialogue with each other and need to mediate one another.

studio das weisse haus has no organizational interconnections with the open call of Kunsthalle Wien for their project “Destination Wien 2015”, so an application for the residency at studio das weisse haus will not interfere with an application for the open call for “Destination Wien 2015”. 

Call Outline:

  • The residency will take place from March 1 to April 26, 2015.
  • Application deadline: January 12, 2015 (all entries that arrive at our postal address by January 12 will be considered for the residency – out of experience we recommend a postmark at least two weeks prior to the deadline.)
  • The results of the Open Call will be announced until the end of January 2015.

For more information and details about the residency (also in terms of subject matter) and the application process, please download the APPLICATION FACT SHEET, or have a look at our FAQs. In case of any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We`re looking forward to your applications!
