Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen invites visual and media artists, art critics, theorists, and curators to apply for a fellowship in 2019–20 (30 September 2019–5 June 2020). Candidates can apply for a five-month fellowship.

The closing date for submissions is 25 January 2019 (postmark).

About Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen
Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen is a post-graduate center for production, research, and exchange in the fields of visual arts and art theory. Within the framework of the Fellowship Program for Art and Theory, the Künstlerhaus provides a platform that facilitates the development and production of artistic and art-theoretical projects in a critical context. At the same time, Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen offers a forum for direct exchange between professionals—artists, theoreticians, critics, and curators—from the region and abroad, as well as a point of interaction with local interested audiences. Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen is affiliated with the Tyrolean Artists' Association, the major association of visual artists from the region.

Fellowship Program
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.

The program combines the advantages of a residency with the possibilities of a postgraduate, non-university research and production fellowship on the basis of an open, non-formalized structure. The program addresses a worldwide public made up of professionals in the fields of contemporary art, architecture, art and media theory, and criticism.

The fellows are selected by a jury of experts following an open call for applications. They come to Büchsenhausen for a minimum of five months to work on realizing their proposed undertaking, and accompany this process with public events. For this purpose, Büchsenhausen assigns a monetary award and provides a production budget, a budget to facilitate the exchange with other experts and to (partially) cover the fellows' own travel costs, free access to the working space, free lodging, as well as artistic and technical advice.

The fellowship year starts with the Orientation Weeks at the beginning of October. The Orientation Weeks end with the Start Up Lectures and the opening of the autumn/fall exhibition by the fellows. In so-called 'Focus Weeks' in January and March, the fellows and/or their guests publicly discuss issues related to their ongoing work, enjoy an intense exchange with their colleagues in the program, and carry out cooperation activities with other university and non-university partners and institutions. The fellowship year ends with a group exhibition curated by the artistic director of the fellowship program. The opening of the show takes place in the second half of May.

The conveyance and discussion of the fellows' own work occurs parallel to the development of the individual proposals. The focus of the public events is determined by the respective emphases of the various fellows' works. Within the framework of these discursive formats, the fellows (or their guests) can present various points in their investigations, open up their works-in-progress to critical discussion, interact with experts who they invite, work through content with the public, and/or try out new ways of working.

For the full text of the call, more information on the application and selection procedure, financial questions, etc., please consult the website at buchsenhausen.at, or contact us at: fellowship@buchsenhausen.at / T +43 512 278627.
