Away

Calls & Programs

AWAY – a project around residencies has an open format. Accordingly, it also has much to report on what is going on beyond its own boundaries — under current calls, for example, on the numerous residency activities of the Austrian provinces or private promotion activities that are in part comparable with, but sometimes completely different from the residency programme of the Federal Chancellery. AWAY has developed a service tool for artists so that they can keep a good overview of this wealth of opportunities and find out which place and programme is the right one for their own way of working or their personal situation.

On principle, the programmes listed are addressing Austrian artists or artists working in Austria. The selection primarily includes grants offered by public institutions in the Austrian provinces and, additionally, a few private initiatives based on positive experiences reported by artists.

Please note that the list is not exhaustive.

current calls

When we talk about the foreign residency program of the Federal Chancellery in the context of current working conditions for artists and the Austrian art promotion scene, we also have to mention comparable activities in the provinces. Apart from programs of provincial agencies, artists are supported by several other exchange and residency initiatives throughout Austria. Some of them are well known and have been active for years, others have just been launched.

A basic distinction is made between incoming and outgoing programs – the former invite national and international artists to studios located in Austria, whereas the latter offer residency destinations abroad for artists working in Austria.

With hyperlinks to the awarding organizations, artists can get information on the most recent calls of incoming and outgoing residency programs and forthcoming submission deadlines here.

incoming residence programs

Who invites whom to use their studios here in Austria and under what conditions? Awarding organizations, artistic focal areas, age limits, destinations — browse the promotion parameters and find out which studio matches your day-to-day working practices.

Under awarding institution, there is a list of institutions offering incoming residency programs. The artistic fields include visual arts, photography, performance, theory/curators, art education and art critics as well as digital arts comprising video and media art as well as sound art and technology. The category of other artistic fields groups together architecture, composition, literature and film. Some programs are tailored to promote young artists — to be eligible for them you must be under 40 years of age. All other programs do not have an age limit and address artists of all age groups. Origin / place of habitation: Some programs address artists who permanently live or work in the province of the relevant awarding organization, were born there or have an extraordinary relationship to it that has to be stated in the application. The detailed requirements have to be studied on the websites of the awarding organizations. In addition, there are also programs that do not specify any location-specific selection criteria. Some programs provide funding in addition to a studio — these can be found using the filter with financial support. There are special programs for students, i.e. artists who have not completed their studies yet. Family-friendly programs offer the possibility to take along children or partners to the residency destination.

    curator in residence das weisse haus

    Destination: Vienna / Vienna
    Awarding institution: studio das weisse haus

The residents then receive the possibility to reside in Vienna for a period of time and get themselves connected with the Viennese art scene, in most cases the residency is followed by an exhibition which is prepared and curated by the resident. In addition studio das weisse haus provides an apartment and studio free of charge and gives professional assistance in networking with the Viennese art scene by arranging studio-visits with local artists, guided tours through current exhibitions and collections.

    For 2018 the open call addresses curators, who do not reside in Vienna, with a profound knowledge of Japanese contemporary art and an excellent knowledge of the English language. The stay will take place between September and December 2018 and for 2-3 weeks in spring 2019.
    150 years of diplomatic relations between Austria and Japan give reason for this project, that combines a curatorial residency and a group exhibition in das weisse haus, that is prepared by the selected curator and will take place in spring 2019. The main challenge of the curatorial concept is to refer to these bilateral relations and to make them visible by including artists of these two countries, who relate to Austria and/or Japan in their artistic practice.
