Call for submissions for a two-month residency at studio das weisse haus including a project present

Description of residency program
About us
studio das weisse haus is a residence and studio program for local and international artists, curators, theorists and critcs. The program was founded in 2013 by Kunstverein das weisse haus. Our main purpose is to offer a platform where professionals from the art field can work together. We seek to support artistic practice and create a space where innovative projects can prosper. The main goal of the residency is to promote an emerging artist and to facilitate a two-month stay in Vienna in combination with an exhibition in das weisse haus.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
Participation requirements
This call for submissions is addressed to international artists who work in the field of installation in combination with sound, video and performance art. The main selection criteria will be the proposed exhibition concept. Please find enclosed the floorplan and spatial views of das weisse haus.

The initial concept for the circular exhibition space in das weisse haus should focus on the idea of a vivid space that changes/is transformed throughout the duration of the exhibition. Therefore the presentation may also have a discursive, site-specific and/or participatory format. In addition, the exhibition should relate to current topics, addressing socio-political issues, questioning curatorial practices, or dealing with participatory processes.

Please take into consideration that the set-up of the installation will start right after the arrival on April 03, 2019. The opening of the exhibition is scheduled on April 09, 2019, 7 pm. Parallel to this presentation, the exhibition “Parallex Trading – contemporary art practices in Austria and Japan” will be on display in das weisse haus, which is organized on the occasion of 150 years of diplomatic relations between Austria and Japan.

studio das weisse haus favours project proposals that

  • meet its general objectives.
  • ensure high quality and clarity.
  • relate to the concept of an exhibition as a vivid, transforming space and therefore, focus on a critical practice beyond the traditional format of the art exhibition.
