Opportunity Description

Akademie Schloss Solitude is happy to announce the call for applications for the period from 2022 to 2023. For the 18th time, circa 65 residencies of six to twelve months will be awarded.

Since its founding in 1990, more than 1.400 fellows from more than 120 countries have resided at the Akademie to realize and refine their projects. They constitute an important global and transdisciplinary network for the international art scene that is growing consistently. It is a central understanding of the Akademie Schloss Solitude’s self-image that fellows from all areas can research and be creative without the pressure of everyday life or constant presentation. At the same time, the Akademie offers the Chance to communicate projects to the public. Next to countless events, the digital representation of the Akademie including the Solitude Blog provides international visibility for fellows and space for new digital projects.

International artists are invited to apply from the following spheres of practice: VISUAL (visual arts and media), AURAL & PHYSICAL (music and performing arts), DIGITAL (digital art, gaming, digital journalism, digital publishing), SPATIAL (architecture and design), TEXTUAL (literature and language), SOCIETAL (education, mediation, theory), SCIENTIFIC (humanities, social, natural and economic sciences).

Who can apply?
International artists, scientists, and cultural professionals are invited to apply for fellowships in the spheres listed above. The candidates should not be older than 40. Applications from students enrolled in degree programs will not be considered. PhD students are welcome to apply. Applications of artist groups are possible. The main language is English.

The Solitude fellowship is a residential fellowship. Fellows are obliged to spend at least two thirds of their fellowships at the Akademie.

The fellowship includes the following benefits:

  • A free, furnished living/working studio including electricity, water and heating,
  • A monthly fellowship grant of EUR 1,200,
  • Travel expenses for arrival and departure (on a one-time basis).
