Call for Applications for the 2009 Residency
The Künstlerhäuser Worpswede are one of the largest residencies in the Federal Republic of Germany.
Among former grant holders are many well-known international artists such as Emmett Williams, Koeken Ergun, Yuri Leiderman, Dan Perjovschi, Katharina Sieverding or Egill Saebjoernsson.
The Künstlerhäuser Worpswede are supported by the Barkenhoff Stiftung, Worpswede, and the private initiative Atelierhaus e. V., which collectively make the studios available. Besides the regular presentation of works produced in the studios both within and outside Worpswede, there are also, on a discursive level, artists discussions, workshops and symposia on artists support, which take place at the Barkenhoff.
The grant body is also supported by the state of Lower Saxony through the award of a monthly grant of 1.400 Euro.
A restriction concerning age or nationality does not exist.
Selection is made by a specialised jury in the fine arts and sound art respectively.
Applications for the 2009 residencies in the fields of fine arts and sound art for a duration of up to 6 months are requested as of now. The deadline is July 10th 2008 (date of postmark).
