Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen invites visual and media artists, art critics, theorists, and curators to apply for a fellowship in 2022–2023 (3 October 2022 – 17 June 2023). Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen is a post-graduate center for production, research, and exchange in the fields of visual arts and art theory. Within the framework of the Fellowship Program for Art and Theory, the institution provides a platform that facilitates the development and production of artistic and art-theoretical projects in a critical context. At the same time, it provides a forum for direct exchange between professionals – artists, theorists, critics, and curators – from the region and abroad, as well as a point of interaction with local, interested audiences.
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 exchange, 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 provides the opportunity for an artistic laboratory of experimentation, where new artistic practices and strategies may be tried out.
The program combines the advantages of a residency with the possibilities of a postgraduate, non-academic research and production fellowship on the basis of an open, non-formalized structure. Content-wise, the program addresses a worldwide public made up of professionals in the fields of contemporary art, architecture, criticism, as well as art and media theory.
