Call for applications: Büchsenhausen Fellowship Program for Art and Theory 2025. Application deadline: February 9, 2024.

Künstler:innenhaus Büchsenhausen invites visual and media artists, art critics, theorists, and curators to apply for a fellowship in 2025 (January 13, 2025–June 27, 2025).

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 exchange, 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 provides the opportunity for an artistic laboratory of experimentation, where new artistic practices and strategies may be tried out.

The fellows are selected by a jury of experts following an open call for applications. They come to Büchsenhausen for a minimum of five months to work on the realization of their proposed undertaking and accompany this process with public events. For this purpose, Büchsenhausen assigns a monetary award and provides a production budget, a budget to facilitate the exchange with other experts and to (at least partially) cover the fellows‘ own travel costs, free access to the working space, free lodging, as well as artistic, art-theoretical, and technical advice.

The conveyance and discussion of the fellows’ own work occur parallel to the development of the individual proposals. The focus of the public events is determined by the respective emphases of the various fellows‘ works. Within the framework of these discursive formats, the fellows and/or their guests can present various points in their investigations, 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 starts with the Orientation Weeks in the beginning of January. The Orientation Weeks end with the Start Up Lectures. During the Focus Weeks in April, the fellows and/or their guests publicly discuss issues related to their ongoing work, enjoy an intense exchange with their colleagues in the program, and carry out cooperation activities with other university and non-university partners and institutions. The fellowship year ends with a group exhibition curated by the artistic director of the fellowship program. The opening of the show will take place in June 2025.
