Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen invites visual and media artists, art critics, theorists, and curators to apply for a fellowship in 2014–2015. Candidates can apply for one semester (October 6, 2014–February 15, 2015 or February 16, 2015–June 28, 2015). The fellowship can be split across two semesters.

The closing date for submissions is January 31, 2014 (postmark).


Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen is a post-graduate center for production, research, and discussion in the visual arts and art theory. Within the framework of its International Fellowship Program for Art and Theory the Künstlerhaus offers a platform that facilitates the development and production of artistic and art-theoretical projects in a critical context. Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen creates a forum for direct exchange between professionals—artists, theoreticians, critics, and curators—from the region and abroad as well as a point of interaction with local publics. Büchsenhausen is affiliated with the Tiroler Künstlerschaft (Tyrolean Artists’ Association), the major association of visual artists from the region.

International Fellowship Program
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 theoreticians can connect and reflect on international art and societal discourses in relation to local topics and issues. At the same time, it offers an artistic laboratory of experimentation, where new artistic practices and strategies may be tried out.

The program’s aims are:
– to promote and relay 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 public fields outside the art context;
– to facilitate the exchange between cultural producers in the visual arts and beyond (creating a network of experts).

The program combines the advantages of a residency with the possibilities of a postgraduate, non-university lectureship on the basis of an open, non-formalized structure. 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 criticism.

The fellows are selected by a jury of experts following an open call for applications. They come to Innsbruck for one or two semesters to work on realizing their submitted work proposal 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 fellows’ works, production methods and themes are made accessible to interested visitors in public events and presentations. This conveyance and discussion of the fellow’s work occurs parallel to the development of 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.
