LINZ FM[Ai]R 21 – Open Call for Artist-in-Residence Entries 2021 (Austria)

LINZ FMR – Art in Digital Contexts and Public Spaces is a biennial festival and platform for artistic processes and positions which reflects the ephemeral nature of our digital and connected present. The ever-advancing digitalisation of everyday life implies an intense overlapping and layering of familiar physical, but also finely interwoven digital spaces. LINZ FMR focuses on the shifts, distortions and rifts that arise in this process and presents current artistic positions in this context.

To deal with all these topics more intensively, LINZ FM[Ai]R 21 invites artists or art collectives to spend one month creating a new work, or further developing an existing project. During the residency, LINZ FMR will provide space, resources and facilities for productive experimentation, dialogue, and collaboration. The work developed during the residency will be presented within the framework of the festival in the form of a group exhibition, performance, or another mode of presentation, and complemented by discursive formats. The artist will also be given the option to be part of an artist talk.

The residency will last one month, and take place in either February or March 2021. The exhibition of LINZ FMR 21 will open on 1 June 2021. For the realisation of more complex works, the artists presence and support during the days before the exhibition is expected (exact timing to be negotiated).

Support offered:

  • 800 Euro artist grant.

  • Up to 1000 Euro production budget (reimbursement based on receipts/invoices).

  • Up to 450 Euros travel expenses (reimbursement based on receipts/invoices).

  • Free use of a studio and free accommodation in one of the flats of Atelierhaus Salzamt for your one month stay.

  • Free access to your host’s facilities and various workshops of the Art University.

  • A professional presentation, exhibition and artist talk (optional) during the Festival LINZ FMR 21.

  • Curatorial support during the residency.

Artists of any age, sex, gender, race or nationality can apply.

Deadline: 30 August 2020
