Call for Studio Grant Applications
The District Kunst- und Kulturförderung is seeking applicants for its Studio Grant program for a period of 6 months starting on June 1, 2012.
Deadline: Monday, May 1, 2012, 12 midnight
District is located on the grounds of the Malzfabrik. The aim of our institution is to promote art and culture, in particular artists and artist collectives that reflect the contemporary from a critical position. Our focus rests on artistic ideas that deal with urban space and its appropriation as well as a new understanding of social issues.
District’s Studio Grant program concentrates explicitly on the promotion of contemporary female artists. Since 2010, we have regularly awarded a studio grant to a professional female artist who represents an independent position. The next scholarship holder will be awarded the use of a 15 m² studio in our building for a period of 6 months starting at June 1, 2012. We are seeking a female artist from the field of visual arts (painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, video, etc.), who takes a critical and interdisciplinary approach. There are no restrictions based on nationality or age. The recipient of the scholarship will be determined by a jury. The composition of the jury will be announced only after the application deadline and the jury members will not give reasons for its decision. Please apply with a cover letter, a CV, a portfolio of no more than 10 pages (max. 3 MB) and, if necessary, a link to streaming videos by Monday, May 1st, 2012 to Katrin Glinka at email@example.com.
For questions please contact us during the business hours: Mon, Tue and Thu from 9 am – 6 pm at +49 30 71093093.
