The Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art will award three Grants for Media Art 2018 of the Foundation of Lower Saxony (10,000 EUR each).

The Foundation of Lower Saxony grant at the Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art supports a wide spectrum of media art, from video art and net-based projects to audio works and audio-visual installations.

Each of the three grants will be awarded for the production of a new project in the area of media art.

Applicants must register for a user account on our website and submit via online application by February 28, 2018, midnight (CET). Applications submitted after this date cannot be taken into consideration.

The grant is valid for a duration of six months (July–December 2018). It cannot be prolonged and residency is compulsory; grant recipients can expect to stay in Oldenburg at least one month.

The project or artistic work should be completed within the six-month duration of the grant. However, an extension up until April 2019 can be negotiated.

Only artists may submit an application; insitutions are ineligble. Only one application per person per year is permitted. Both individual artists and artist groups can apply; however, the grant amount is the same for groups as for individuals. For artist groups, the applicant whose name is provided as a contact will be considered responsible for the Project.

If desired, grant recipients can apply to stay in a furnished guest apartment.

Grant recipients are expected to be involved in the activities of the Edith-Russ-Haus, including, for example, running workshops and giving presentations and artist talks. The dates of such activities will be arranged in consultation with the Edith-Russ-Haus.

Beyond the grant amount of 10,000 EUR and the possibility of using one of the guest apartments at the Edith-Russ-Haus, no further costs will be covered during the residency (such as technical means, production means, travel expenses, and living expenses incurred during the grant period).

A jury consisting of international experts will select the recipients of the grants.

Only applications submitted through the online application system will be taken into consideration. Applications sent via post or email, as well as any extra materials received by post or email, will be disregarded and disposed of.

The application may be submitted in either English or German. For German applications, please additionally include an English translation of the summary of the application, as the jury will consist of international participants.

An application is considered accepted when the applicant receives confirmation via email. If the application does not adhere to the prescribed requirements, the applicant will not receive an email confirmation.

The Edith-Russ-Haus and the jury have the unilateral right to exclude applications that do not conform to the above-listed requirements.
