Since 1979 the Kuenstlerstaette Schloss Bleckede has been seeking to promote young artists who explore innovative positions in the field of contemporary fine art. Today artists, whose work addresses complex aesthetic, cultural or political issues, rarely find the necessary support to realize their ambitious projects. This is why the Kuenstlerstaette Schloss Bleckede wishes to offer these artists the opportunity to develop their work in the course of a residential scholarship of three or six months.

The Kuenstlerstaette Schloss Bleckede offers ideal working conditions. The historic remise of the castle of Bleckede has been restored and transformed into three studios, each of which provides an extensive work space and a comfortable living area. The castle is located in the nature reserve Elbufer Drawehn close to the river Elbe between Hamburg and Lueneburg. Moreover Hamburg and Berlin is within easy reach, both of which have a thriving cultural life. The scholarship includes a monthly grant of Euro 1.400,- , which is made available for up to three scholarship holders at any one time, by the state of Lower Saxony. Previous scholarship winners have included reknown artists like Ulla von Brandenburg, Shannon Bool, Geoffrey Hendricks, Peter Pommerer, Katharina Sieverding, Maki Tamura and Simon Wachsmuth. The residential scholarship will be selected by a jury.

The call for applications is open to all artists of all nationalities. Application forms, criteria and more information are available at www.kuenstlerstaette-bleckede.de
