AIR – ARTIST IN RESIDENCE Niederösterreich

General information

Brief description of residency program

The AIR – ARTIST IN RESIDENCE program with its studio apartments in Krems serves to promote international cultural exchange. The interdisciplinary scholarship program offers visual artists, architects, musicians and writers the opportunity to work temporarily in Lower Austria and to explore the richly varied Austrian cultural landscape. In return, AIR – ARTIST IN RESIDENCE organizes stays in Europe and overseas for Lower Austrian artists as part of an institutional exchange.
In order to meet the needs of a broad range of contemporary artistic practices, AIR – ARTIST IN RESIDENCE focuses on connecting artists and their creative activities to existing art and cultural institutions in Lower Austria and Vienna. The program enables and supports the realization of exhibitions, concerts, readings and workshops, covering, in the broadest sense, the entire spectrum of possible artistic forms of expression and presentation, while at the same time making room for contextualization and discursive reflection of the working methods. This ultimately also contributes significantly to constant internationalization and discussion of the art and culture scene of the Province of Lower Austria.
