Studio das Weiss Haus (Austria) > Artist in Residence 2019

This call is addressed to international artists who work in the field of installation in combination with sound, video and performance art. The main selection criteria will be the proposed exhibition concept. 

The initial concept for the circular exhibition space in das weisse haus should focus on the idea of a vivid space that changes throughout the duration of the exhibition. Therefore the presentation may also have a discursive, site-specific and/or participatory format. In addition, the exhibition should relate to current topics, addressing socio-political issues, questioning curatorial practices, or dealing with participatory processes.

Please take into consideration that the set-up of the installation will start right after the arrival on April 03, 2019. The opening of the exhibition is scheduled on April 09, 2019, 7 pm. Parallel to this presentation, the exhibition “Parallex Trading – contemporary art practices in Austria and Japan” will be on display in das weisse haus, which is organized on the occasion of 150 years of diplomatic relations between Austria and Japan.
