Akademie Schloss Solitude is an international and transdisciplinary artists’ residence and has supported approximately 1,700 young artists from more than 120 countries since opening its doors in 1990. Its unique model affords artists and scientists valuable freedom to develop their work and perform research in both a physical and digital context.

Applications are accepted in the following spheres of practice: Visual (fine arts and video); Aural & Physical (music and performing arts), Digital/Digital Solitude (digital art, gaming, digital journalism, digital publishing); Spatial (architecture and design); Textual (literature and language); Societal/Communal-based work (education, mediation, theory); and Scientific/Art science & business (humanities, social, natural, and economic sciences).

The name Akademie Schloss Solitude unites the belief in artistic, scientific exchange with the notion of a refuge, a credo which underlays the construction of the Schloss Solitude from the very beginning. Residencies at Akademie Schloss Solitude enable fellows to devote themselves to their research projects under favorable material and intellectual conditions. In this way, the available resources can be used in an optimal, needs-oriented manner. It is essential for the self-conception of Akademie Schloss Solitude that fellows of all disciplines are enabled to work and research free of daily pressures and presentation deadlines. Despite this, the Akademie offers the possibility to communicate and present projects to the public. Besides the realisation of numerous public events, the online presence of Akademie Schloss Solitude international visibility of fellows and their projects and creates space for new digital projects.

The Akademie Schloss Solitude is financially supported by the German province of Baden-Württemberg.
