Brief description of residency program

studio das weisse haus is a residence and studio program for local and international artists, curators and theorists in Vienna, Austria. The program was started by the art association das weisse haus in spring 2013.

The main purpose of the studio das weisse haus is to offer a place where local and international artists, curators and theorists can work together, encouraging intercultural exchange and artistic discourse. We seek to support artistic practice and create a space where innovative projects can prosper. The idea is to connect international artists and curators with the local art community and to involve the public in the creative process.

Following the concept of das weisse haus the studio program will make use of various premises, residing at locations on a temporary basis. Challenging the discourse about art and space, studio dwh offers its national and international residents different spatial situations and thus introduces them to various spots and locations in the city. The program will therefore adapt due to differing location conditions (see pictures of our different locations).

studio das weisse haus offers two Artists in Residence periods per year for 4 international artists, Curator / Theorist in Residence program in cooperation with different Viennese art institutions and short-term summer or winter residencies as a supplement to the main program. The number of Viennese artists using the working space of the studio varies according to the capacity of the current location. At the moment, we are providing 16 local artists with a studio.
