Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen

Frist: Freitag, 31. Januar 2020

Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen invites once a year visual and media artists, art critics, theorists, and curators to apply for a fellowship. The competition for a fellowship is usually held during the months of November until April. Candidates can apply for a five-month fellowship.

The closing date for submissions for a fellowship in 2020–2021 (5 October, 2020 – 12 June, 2021) will be Fri 31 January, 2020.

With its Fellowship Program for Art and Theory, Büchsenhausen promotes internationally relevant artistic production, research, and discussion in the region of Tyrol. The program is based on the idea of generating and maintaining a context for production and discussion, in which artists and theorists can connect and reflect on international art and societal discourses in relation to local topics and issues. At the same time, it affords the opportunity for an artistic laboratory of experimentation, where new artistic practices and strategies may be tried out.
