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’s aims are: * to promote and relay a critical, socially relevant production of knowledge in art and art theory; * to produce, through the fellowship projects, qualified discourses on art and society within the local and global contexts; * to enable the transfer of knowledge between the field of art and other publics outside the art context; * to facilitate the exchange between cultural producers in the visual arts and beyond (creating a network of experts).
Eligibility Professional visual/media artists, art theorists, art critics, and curators from all over the world are eligible for the fellowship.
Scholarship Deadline: January 31, 2011
