studio das weisse haus is pleased to announce the residence program 2016 for young international artists who work and / or have academic experiences in the fields of fine arts, photography, installation, sound- and video- or performance art.
We offer two residence periods for three months, available to three artists each:
Period 1 is going to take place from April 5 until July 31, 2016.
Period 2 is going to take place from September 5 until November 30, 2016.
The aim of our program is to link the selected artists to the Viennese art scene and provide them with an insight into the local institutional environment. Therefore we will arrange studio visits, guided tours through current exhibitions and collections, field trips and other events.
During a residence period we organize an Open Studio Day, to give our guest artists the opportunity to present their ongoing projects as well as former works to the public. Local artist, curators and critics are invited to these events.
At the end of each residence period, the Artists in Residence are invited to introduce their project within the context of a public event. The form of presentation may be a workshop, a talk, a lecture performance, a screening, an exhibition or any other form of presentation.
Each Artist in Residence will receive
a monthly allowance of EUR 300,- to cover basic living costs. We do recommend to the candidates to look for additional funding.
a one time contribution of EUR 100,- to cover a part of the production costs for the proposed project.
a one time contribution to the travel expenses: EUR 200,- are assigned to residents coming from a country within Europe, whereas EUR 400,- are assigned to residents coming from a country outside of Europe.
