Bibliothek Andreas Züst > Studio Residencies for Cultural Workers (Switzerland)
The Bibliothek Andreas Züst (Oberegg, Switzerland) offers studio residency stipends twice a year during the months of April and November. The length of stay is a total of four weeks. Application for the Studio Residency Stipend is open to national and international cultural workers (individuals or teams of up to a maximum of four persons) across disciplines – visual arts, literature, new media, music, theatre, design, architecture, film, photography, and other art-related disciplines.
Applications are now open for residencies in November 2020 and April 2021.
Residents will stay in the Alpenhof panorama lodge (part of a former hotel overlooking the Rhine Valley and Lake Constance). Applicants must submit a statement specifying their specific interests and describing their motivation in seeking a residency. The Bibliothek Andreas Züst is especially seeking projects that deal with the library as a whole or one of its sub-areas. In short, the residency should entail research about what constitutes the fabric of our culture and also what goes beyond it.
Residents will have access to a shared studio/rehearsal room, as well as different areas throughout the Alpenhof for working quietly. Further facilities include: the shared kitchen, dining and living rooms, and the Bibliothek Andreas Züst. Accommodation and use of the studio are free-of-charge, and travel costs are also covered. A separate request can be made for an additional subsidy for living costs of up to CHF 250 per week (~235 EUR). Artistic production costs must be covered privately.
Deadline: 30 April 2020 & 30 September 2020
