Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen (Austria) > Open call for applications

Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen invites visual and media artists, art critics, theorists, and curators to apply for a fellowship in 2018–2019 (1 October 2018–2 June 2019). Candidates can apply for a five-month fellowship.

Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen is a post-graduate center for production, research and exchange in the fields of visual arts and art theory. Within the framework of the Fellowship Program for Art and Theory, the Künstlerhaus provides a platform that facilitates the development and production of artistic and art-theoretical projects in a critical context. At the same time, it offers a forum for direct exchange between professionals—artists, theoreticians, critics, and curators—from the region and abroad, as well as a point of interaction with local, interested audiences. Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen is affiliated with the Tiroler Künstler*schaft (the Tyrolean Artists’ Association), the major association of visual artists from the region.

Büchsenhausen brings together two programs under one roof. On the one hand, it is the site of the Fellowship Program for Art and Theory. On the other hand, it is the location of several studios for artists based in Tyrol who are looking for a working space in a professionally interesting environment. Four apartment studios are used by the participants in the fellowship program. The other six studios are available to artists based in Tyrol. The project and presentation space is equipped with multimedia facilities and is at the fellows’ disposal.

With its Fellowship Program for Art and Theory, Büchsenhausen promotes internationally relevant artistic production, research, and discussion in the region of Tyrol. The program is based on the idea of generating and maintaining a context for production and discussion, in which artists and theorists can connect and reflect on international art and societal discourses in relation to local topics and issues. At the same time, it affords the opportunity for an artistic laboratory of experimentation, where new artistic practices and strategies may be tried out.
