Open Call AiR Künstlerdorf

The Künstlerdorf Schöppingen Foundation supports international artists and authors by organizing an Artist-in-Residence program in Schöppingen, Germany. Around 40 residency grants in the fields of visual arts, literature and experimental composition are awarded each year.

The grants are linked to a stay in the Künstlerdorf which can last between two and six months each. The organisation is open for application without any restrictions in regards to nationality or age. Accommodation for family members can be provided by arrangement and availability. The Foundation places particular emphasis on the progressive potential of the arts and the testing of new methods and structures. A commitment that can be assigned to such fields of action and breaks up familiar structures does not constitute an exclusion criterion for the application, but can be an advantage.

The AiR program offers opportunies to gain insights into artistic processes and exchange with the fellow artists, writers and musicians. In addition to the ongoing events, the Künstlerdorf organizes the annual curator’s program CAP, with the aim of developing contemporary strategies and structures for artistic productions and to negotiate implementation issues. In order to facilitate the exchange of grant holders beyond their residency, the alumni program offers the option of visiting the Künstlerdorf as a guest or to participate in later projects.

Applications can be submitted until 31 August. More information can be found here.
