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 one or two months. ERSTE Foundation is the main partner of tranzit and also provides financing for the Artists-in-Residence programme. The jury for selecting the artists consists of members of tranzit and ERSTE Foundation.
The residencies are designed for artists, curators and theoreticians working in the field of contemporary art.
