Artists-in-Residence programme in Vienna of ERSTE Foundation, tranzit, Igor Zabel Association and Kontakt Collection/WHW Akademija

The Artist-in-Residence Programme at Q21/MuseumsQuartier in Vienna is part of ERSTE Foundation’s long-termed endeavor 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, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovak Republic, and Slovenia working in the field of contemporary visual art to do research in their respective areas. Everyone eligible is invited to take part in the open call.

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 a 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 € 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 Hungary: January – February 2022
for Croatia: March – April 2022
for the Czech Republic: May – June 2022
for Romania: July – August 2022
for Slovenia: September – October 2022
