Call for Proposals: Christian Gottlieb Priber Travel Grant
In connection with the exhibition With Criminal Energy – Art and Crime in the 21st Century the art centre HALLE 14 in the Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei is announcing a call for proposals for the Christian Gottlieb Priber Travel Grant.
The travel grant offers the opportunity from August through November to follow in the footsteps of the Saxon Utopian and early Socialist Christian Gottlieb Priber (1697-1745) and discover his places of residence in Zittau (Germany), London (U.K.), Savannah, Charleston, the former Cherokee region in Tennessee and Fort Frederica on St. Simon's Island (USA).
From the impressions and discoveries, artists can create a project, which may subsequently be presented in Leipzig and Weimar. A total of 5000 Euros are available for this project.
Artists from throughout the world are called on to apply by sending the completed application form and a letter of motivation, which includes a proposed idea for the project and a time plan for the travel grant.
A three-person expert jury will meet at the end of June 2012 to select the fellowship recipient from the applications, which must arrive at HALLE 14 by the application deadline.
Application Deadline: June 22, 2012
