The Artist-in-Residence Programme at Q21/MuseumsQuartier in Vienna is part of ERSTE Foundation’s long-termed endeavour to support contemporary art and to strengthen the situation of its creators, especially in the region of Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. The residence program is realized together by tranzit, Igor Zabel Association and Kontakt Collection. Kontakt Collection will collaborate with the Zagreb based WHW Akademija.
The residencies are designed for artists, curators and theoreticians from Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovak Republic and Slovenia working in the field of contemporary visual art to do research in their respective area. The research character of the residence should make it possible to take a break from the everyday strenuous production pressure and find time to concentrate on a specific interest. The participants are given the opportunity to live and work for the period of two months in one of the MuseumsQuartier studios right in the heart of Vienna. The apartments offer both living and working space, but do not provide room for large-scale artistic works.
During the stay various meeting possibilities are offered to the participants. Each residence grants a monthly stipend of EUR 1.050,-.
Artists, curators or theoreticians from Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovak Republic and Slovenia are invited to take part in the open call. Accepted candidates are required to use the residence in its full length during the following fixed periods:
for Slovak Republic: May – June 2021
for Slovenia: July – August 2021
for Czech Republic: Sept – Oct 2021
for Hungary: October – November 2021
for Croatia: October – November 2021
for Romania: November – December 2021
