Akademie Schloss Solitude Artist-in-Residence Program 2020-2021

The renowned Akademie Schloss Solitude is happy to announce its 17th call for applications for its international and interdisciplinary artist-in-residence-program.

International artists are invited to apply from different spheres of practice as well as for academy’s thematic call.

For the first time in its 30-year history, Akademie Schloss Solitude is expanding its profile with the addition of a thematic call. In cooperation with KfW Stiftung, Solitude is launching the new program with the specific content-related focus »Mutations«. To foster transdisciplinary and transcultural dialogue between the arts, sciences and society, young professionals from all fields are invited to engage in this topic in a focused group conversation. The 9-month program aims to encourage critical reflection and artistic production as well as encounters across disciplines.

Applications are invited for the following spheres of practice:

  1. Visual (visual arts and media),
  2. Aural & Physical (music and performing arts),
  3. Digital (digital art, gaming, digital journalism, digital publishing),
  4. Spatial (architecture and design),
  5. Textual (literature and language),
  6. Societal (education, mediation, theory),
  7. Scientific (humanities, social, natural, and economic sciences).

International artists, scientists, and cultural professionals are invited to apply for fellowships in the spheres listed above. The candidates should not be older than 40. Applications from students enrolled in degree programs will not be considered. Applications of artist groups are possible. The main language is English.

The decision regarding the fellowships’ allocation is taken by independent specialist jurors responsible for the various spheres. Fellowships are usually awarded for a period between six, nine or twelve months.

The Solitude fellowship is a residential fellowship. Fellows are obliged to spend at least two thirds of their fellowships at the Akademie.

The fellowship includes the following benefits:

  • A free, furnished living/working studio incl. electricity, water and heating,
  • A monthly fellowship grant of 1,200 Euro,
  • Travel expenses for arrival and departure (on a one-time basis).

Akademie Schloss Solitude is an international Artist-in-Residence Program and has supported approximately 1,400 young artists from more than 120 countries since opening its doors in 1990. It creates a close-knit, global and transdisciplinary network of Solitude alumni that expands from year to year.

Further information about the call for the residential fellowship in general, and for the thematic call in specific can be found via the official website.
