Deadline: 19 February
Kunstverein EXTRA is pleased to announce in cooperation with Antonia Rahofer a call for applications for four artist residencies for the first half of 2017. The programme provides a total of 2 x 2 funded residencies from April to May and from June to July.
The capital of Greece is a city that invites artists to explore its sociocultural, economic, institutional, and architectural conditions and to encounter its vibrant cultural scene. Moreover, from April to July, the city hosts this year’s documenta, which, now in its 14th edition, has vowed to »learn from Athens«.
Your residency will focus on the development and realization of your project plans, the results of which will be presented in an exhibition at the end of your stay. You are free to choose the media and formats you want to utilize.
The local cooperation partner is Snehta Residency, whose wide-ranging international network provides ample opportunities for the chosen artists to make valuable contacts.
The call is open to artists from all fields who
> have had exhibitions and/or have published their work in some form.
> live and work in Austria or are able to plausibly demonstrate their connection to Austria.
> were born in 1976 or later.
> have good English language skills.
Each artist will receive a sum of 650 euros per month for living expenditures and production costs (1300 euros in total; if an artist is absent for more than 14 days, he/she will be paid the aliquot sum)
Travel expenditures: round-trip ticket for no more than 200 euros.
