The Summer Academy welcomes applications to its different scholarship schemes for its exciting 2022 course programme. The programme reflects current intersectional developments in contemporary art practices such as performance and indigeneitydigital image archiving, and collaborative/community-oriented practices, as well as methodological approaches to decolonialityeco-criticismin/visibility/impairment, and (queer-)feminism. It also holds unique opportunities in advancing individual practices in artistic and curatorial researchdrawingeducatingpaintingperformingprint-makingphotography and film-makingsculpting, and writing together in an international collaborative environment. 

Most scholarships cover the participation fee, while some include travel and accommodation expenses. Together with the artistic instructors, an international jury will award the scholarships. Every year about 100 scholarships are given to a global community of students.
