studio das weisse haus: Residency for a Curator Focusing on Photography (Austria)

Call for submissions for international curators with a focus on photography.

studio das weisse haus is announcing a three to four weeks residency for one international curator with a focus on photography. The goal of the programme is to realise a presentation in combination with two Open Studio Days on 24 and 25 June with the Studio Artists of studio das weisse haus’ programme as part of FOTO WIEN festival (1-30 June 2023).

Currently, eight Vienna-based artists work in studio das weisse haus’ space located at Hegelgasse 14. While some use photography to document their performances or drawing processes, others employ it as a field for experimentation, such as cyanotype. Some of the artists portray people or record urban changes. However, all of the artists share photos of their works and installation views on their website and social media. Photography is omnipresent in the daily life of an artist, it is impossible to get around without it. Following this year’s theme of the festival (Photography Lies), this residency programme would like to question where the truth ends and the lie of photography begins.

The residency includes:

  • A grant of 800 euros.
  • A travel voucher of up to 200 euros for travelling green within a radius of 1000 kilometres.
  • A living voucher of 500 euros.
  • A working space free of charge.
  • The organisation of a presentation as well as two open studios with the studio artists during the festival FOTO WIEN. Therefore, a production budget of up to 500 euros is available.
  • Technical support from the team of studio das weisse haus
  • a festival pass for FOTO WIEN.
  • Networking opportunities.
