tranzit is a network of five independent, non-profit organisations in Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and the Slovak Republic. Since 2002 tranzit has been developing artistic and cultural activities with a critical approach, fostering a permanent dialectic between local and global culture.
The Artists-in-Residence programme at quartier21/MuseumsQuartier is part of this endeavour and provides young artists from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and the Slovak Republic with a guest studio and the opportunity to live and work in Vienna for the period of two months.
ERSTE Foundation is the main partner of tranzit and also provides financing for the Artists-in-Residence programme. tranzit is responsible for selecting the artists.
The residencies are designed for artists, curators and theoreticians working in the field of contemporary art.
Each residence consists of:
_ a monthly stipend of 1050 EUR (travel expenses included)
_ a studio space to live and work in the MuseumsQuartier in Vienna
Applications must include:
1. Letter of intent – explaining why you apply and what you expect. What would you like to focus on during the residence (max. 5000 characters)
2. Portfolio – documentation of work
3. Brief informative curriculum vitae (max. 1 page)
4. Contact information: name, address, phone, email, website
Applicants should be prepared for the requirement to use the residence in its full length.
Accepted residents are required to hand in a report after completion of the residence.
The residencies for Czech Republic, Hungary and the Slovak Republic have already been selected through a call last year, but as tranzit.ro was only founded in 2012 we reserved one residence at the end of the year (Nov-Dec) for Romania which is offered now with this exclusive call.
Please send applications for the months November – December 2012
