The Dresden Grant in Photography, supported by the Dresdner Stiftung Kunst & Kultur der Ostsächsischen Sparkasse Dresden, addresses artists who work as self-employed and/or full-time photographers, who might have earned an artistic degree, who have at least one public personal exhibition or publication featuring photographic works, and who do not permanently reside in Dresden.
The grant supports artistic and/or documentary projects that focus on photographic images and processes, providing a three-month residency March-May 2022. The grant places artistic interpretations of the city of Dresden at the core of the project, without necessarily limiting the artistic work to city photography in a strict sense. On-site presence is expected.
The grant awards a monthly stipend of 1000€ for a three-month period and an additional allowance of maximum 1000€ for photo materials as well, as free accommodation in an apartment in Dresden.
The works produced as a result of the grant can be presented to a wider public in an exhibition in the Technische Sammlungen Dresden (‘Technology Collections of the city of Dresden’).
