Kuenstlerstaette Schloss Bleckede Artist-in-Residence Call for Applications (Lá Fora … 43)

Call for applications 

Deadline: 27/09/08

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

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.
