CALL FOR APPLICATIONS 2011-12
Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen invites visual and media artists, art
critics, theorists, and curators to apply for a fellowship in
2011--2012. Candidates can apply for one semester (October 3, 2011 --
February 11, 2012 or February 14, 2012 - June 24, 2012). The fellowship

CLOSING DATE FOR SUBMISSIONS: JANUARY 31, 2011 (POSTMARK).
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 discussion, 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 affords the opportunity for an artistic laboratory of
experimentation, where new artistic practices and strategies may be
The program's aims are:
* to promote and relay a critical, socially relevant production of
knowledge in art and art theory;
* to produce, through the fellowship projects, qualified discourses on
art and society within the local and global contexts;
* to enable the transfer of knowledge between the field of art and other
publics outside the art context;
* to facilitate the exchange between cultural producers in the visual
arts and beyond (creating a network of experts).
The program brings together the advantages of a residency with the
possibilities of a postgraduate non-university lectureship, without
offering a formalized educational program. In terms of content, the
program addresses a worldwide public made up of professionals in the
fields of contemporary art, architecture, art and media theory, and
The fellows are selected by a jury of experts following an open call for
applications. They come to Büchsenhausen for one or two semesters to
work on realizing their submitted projects or research, and accompany
this process with public events. For this purpose, Büchsenhausen offers
a monthly stipend, a production budget, working spaces, free lodging,
and artistic and technical advice.
The conveyance and discussion of the fellow's own work occurs parallel
to the development of the individual projects. The public events take
place in series. The focus of these series of events is determined by
the respective emphases of the various fellows' works. Within the
framework of this discursive format, the fellows (or their guests) can
present various points in their research, open up their
works-in-progress to critical discussion, interact with experts who they
invite, work through content with the public, and/or try out new ways of
working. The fellowship year ends with a group exhibition curated by the
director of the Fellowship Program.
