For details regarding the application procedure please scroll down.

Institution

Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen is a post-graduate center for production, research, exchange in the fields of visual arts and art theory. Within the framework of the Fellowship Program for Art and Theory, the Künstlerhaus provides a platform that facilitates the development and production of artistic and art-theoretical projects in a critical context. At the same time, Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen offers a forum for direct exchange between professionals – artists, theoreticians, critics, and curators – from the region and abroad, as well as a point of interaction with local interested audiences. Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen is affiliated with the Tyrolean Artists’ Association, the major association of visual artists from the region.

Büchsenhausen brings together two programs under one roof. On the one hand, it is the site of the Fellowship Program for Art and Theory. On the other hand, it is the location of several studios for artists based in Tyrol who require space for working in a professionally interesting environment. Three apartment studios are used by the participants in the fellowship program. The other six studios are available to artists based in Tyrol. The project and presentation space is equipped with multimedia facilities and is at the fellows’ disposal. The space was designed by Atelier van Lieshout.

Fellowship Program

With its Fellowship Program for Art and Theory, Büchsenhausen promotes internationally relevant artistic production, research, and discussion in the region of Tyrol. The program is based on the idea of generating and maintaining a context for production and discussion, in which artists and theorists can connect and reflect on international art and societal discourses in relation to local topics and issues. At the same time, it affords the opportunity for an artistic laboratory of experimentation, where new artistic practices and strategies may be tried out.

The program’s aims are:

  • to promote and relay a critical, socially relevant production of knowledge in art and art theory;
  • to produce, through the fellowship projects, qualified discourses on art and society within the local and global contexts;
  • to enable the transfer of knowledge between the field of art and other publics outside the art context;
  • to facilitate the exchange between cultural producers in the visual arts and beyond (creating a network of experts).

The program combines the advantages of a residency with the possibilities of a postgraduate, non-university lectureship on the basis of an open, non-formalized structure. In terms of content, the program addresses a worldwide public made up of professionals in the fields of contemporary art, architecture, art and media theory, and criticism.

The fellows are selected by a jury of experts following an open call for applications. They come to Büchsenhausen for one or two semesters to work on realizing their proposed undertaking, and accompany this process with public events. For this purpose, Büchsenhausen assigns a monetary award and provides a production budget, working spaces, free lodging, and artistic and technical advice.

The conveyance and discussion of the fellow’s own work occurs parallel to the development of the individual proposals. The focus of the public events is determined by the respective emphases of the various fellows’ works. Within the framework of these discursive formats, the fellows (or their guests) can present various points in their investigations, open up their works-in-progress to critical discussion, interact with experts who they invite, work through content with the public, and/or try out new ways of working. The fellowship year ends with a group exhibition curated by the director of the Fellowship Program.

For former and current fellows and their realized work please go to buchsenhausen.at/fellows.

Fellowship

  • a money award of EUR 3,200;
  • an individual studio for working and living, furnished with a large shared kitchen;
  • a production budget for the realization of the submitted proposal;
  • a budget for inviting experts to Büchsenhausen for the purpose of professional exchange;
  • the opportunity of a group exhibition at the end of the fellowship;

Facilities

  • free access to the ‘Lab’, the project/gallery space;
  • free use of the available multimedia production equipment in the ‘Lab’;
  • free Highspeed-DSL/WLAN Internet access;
  • professional artistic advice;
  • technical advice if required.

Eligibility

Professional visual/media artists, art theorists, art critics, and curators from all over the world are eligible for the fellowship.

Requirements

The application must include a concrete work proposition. Work on the submitted proposal forms the core of each fellow’s activities during his/her stay in Büchsenhausen. A description of a series of public events intended to accompany the individual work during the duration of the fellowship (up to three events) is also an integral part of the working proposal. If the application is successful, the fellows are required to specify the details of the presentation series and carry out the proposed program.

The fellows declare themselves willing to be present at Büchsenhausen for the duration of the fellowship. Working knowledge of English is required.

Selection

The selection of fellows is made by a jury of experts and based on the quality, originality, and relevance of the proposed undertaking and the work samples submitted by the applicants. The jury includes the director of Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen, a member of the advisory board at Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen and one external expert.

The selection procedure occurs in two stages.

In the first stage, the submitted applications are evaluated and the jury makes a shortlist of candidates who will be invited to Büchsenhausen for personal interviews.

The personal interview with the jury forms the second stage. For the interview, the applicants have to come to Innsbruck to personally present their working plans and aims during the fellowship.

Büchsenhausen will pay for accommodation in Innsbruck for one night, but cannot cover the costs for travel to Innsbruck. Alternatively, a video conference (for instance via Skype) is also possible.

There is no legal right to be awarded a fellowship at Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen. The jury is therefore under no obligation to justify decisions. The jury’s decision will be communicated in written form in March 2017 (first stage) and April 2017 (second stage).

Application procedure

Applications are to be written in English or German. Applications must include the following printed documents:

  • the working proposal (max 2,000 words, 3 copies);

Institution

Das Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen ist ein postgraduales Zentrum für Produktion, Forschung und Vermittlung im Bereich der visuellen Künste und der Kunsttheorie. Im Rahmen des hier stattfindenden Fellowship-Programms stellt das Künstlerhaus eine Plattform zur Verfügung, die die Entwicklung und die Produktion künstlerischer und kunsttheoretischer Projekte in einem kritischen Kontext ermöglicht. Das Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen bildet gleichzeitig ein Forum für den direkten Austausch zwischen lokal und überregional tätigen Fachleuten – Künstler_innen, Theoretiker_innen, Kritiker_innen und Kurator_innen sowie eine Schnittstelle zu unterschiedlichen Öffentlichkeiten vor Ort. Das Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen ist eine Einrichtung der Tiroler Künstlerschaft, der wichtigsten Vereinigung bildender Künstler_innen in der Region.

Das Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen vereint zwei Förderprogramme unter einem Dach: Es ist einerseits Austragungsort des Fellowship-Programms für Kunst und Theorie. Andererseits ist es ein Atelierhaus für in Tirol lebende Künstler_innen, die einen Arbeitsraum in einer künstlerisch interessanten Umgebung suchen. Drei Ateliers stehen den Fellows als Wohnstudios zur Verfügung. Sechs weitere Ateliers werden mehrjährig an Künstler_innen aus Tirol vergeben. Neben den Ateliers verfügt das Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen über einen großen Projekt- und Präsentationsraum, der den Fellows zur Verfügung steht. Der Raum wurde vom Künstler_innen-Kollektiv Atelier van Lieshout gestaltet.

Fellowship-Programm

Mit dem Fellowship-Programm für Kunst und Theorie fördert das Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen in Tirol eine künstlerische Produktion, Forschung und Diskussion von internationaler und regionaler Relevanz. Dem Programm liegt die Idee zugrunde, einen Produktions- und Diskussionskontext zu generieren, in dem Künstler_innen und Theoretiker_innen überregionale Kunst- und Gesellschaftsdiskurse mit lokalen Themen in Zusammenhang bringen und reflektieren. Gleichzeitig wird die Möglichkeit eines künstlerischen Experimentierlabors gewahrt, wodurch Neues ausprobiert werden kann.

Ziele des Programms sind:

  • Förderung und Verbreitung einer kritischen, gesellschaftsrelevanten künstlerischen bzw. kunsttheoretischen Wissensproduktion;
  • Die Produktion qualifizierter Diskurse zu Kunst und Gesellschaft im lokalen und globalen Kontext durch die Umsetzung der Arbeitsvorhaben im Rahmen der Fellowships;
  • Die Ermöglichung des Wissenstransfers zwischen dem Kunstfeld und anderen Öffentlichkeiten außerhalb des Kunstkontextes;
  • Der Austausch zwischen Kulturproduzent_innen im Bereich der visuellen Künste und darüber hinaus (Vernetzung von Expert_innen).

Das Programm verbindet die Vorteile einer Residenz mit den Möglichkeiten einer außeruniversitären Dozentur auf Grundlage einer offenen, nicht formalisierten Struktur. Inhaltlich richtet sich das Programm an eine weltweite Fachöffentlichkeit in den Bereichen zeitgenössischer Kunst, Architektur, Kunst- bzw. Medientheorie und -kritik.

Die Fellows werden nach einem offenen Bewerbungsverfahren von einer Fachjury ausgewählt. Sie kommen für einen Zeitraum von ein bis zwei Semestern nach Büchsenhausen, wo sie am eingereichten Arbeitsvorhaben arbeiten und diesen Prozess in öffentlichen Veranstaltungen diskursiv begleiten. Büchsenhausen vergibt hierfür einen Geldpreis und stellt ein Produktionsbudget, Arbeitsräume, eine kostenlose Wohnmöglichkeit sowie fachliche und technische Beratung zur Verfügung.

Die Vermittlung und Diskussion der Inhalte erfolgt parallel zur Entwicklung der einzelnen Vorhaben. Die Inhalte der öffentlichen Veranstaltungen werden von dem jeweiligen Arbeitsschwerpunkt der Fellows vorgegeben. Im Rahmen dieser diskursiven Formate präsentieren die Fellows (oder ihre Gäste) unterschiedliche Schwerpunkte ihrer Investigationen, können aber auch ihre laufende Arbeit einer kritischen Diskussion stellen, sich in Interaktion mit eingeladenen Expert_innen und dem Publikum Inhalte erarbeiten und neue Arbeitsweisen erproben. Das Fellowship-Jahr endet mit einer Gruppenausstellung, die vom Leiter des Fellowship-Programms kuratiert wird.

Beispiele für Arbeitsvorhaben, die im Rahmen des Programms realisiert wurden, finden sich auf dieser Website unter dem Menü-Punkt buchsenhausen.at/fellows.

The Patricia D. Klingenstein Library at the New-York Historical Society is home to more than 350,000 books, three million manuscripts, and distinctive collections of maps, photographs, and prints, as well as ephemera and family papers documenting the history of the United States from a distinctly New York perspective. New-York Historical’s collections are particularly rich in material pertaining to the American Revolution and early Republic, the Civil War, and the Gilded Age. Significant holdings relate to Robert Livingston and the Livingston family, Rufus King, Horatio Gates, Albert Gallatin, Cadwallader Colden, Robert Fulton, Richard Varick, and many other notable individuals. Also well documented within the Library’s collections are major social movements in American history, especially abolitionism, temperance, and social welfare. The Library’s visual archives include some of the earliest photographs of New York, a significant collection of Civil War images, and the archives of major architectural firms of the later 19th century. Among the more than 1.6 million works comprising the Museum’s art collections are all 435 preparatory watercolors for John James Audubon’s Birds of America, a preeminent collection of Hudson River School landscapes; and an exceptional collection of decorative and fine arts spanning four centuries.

The New-York Historical Society offers a rich research environment that promotes an active intellectual community. Fellows are encouraged to explore the collections and take advantage of the full scope of the Library and Museum’s resources and to share their research during their tenure through informal talks and blog posts. Educational outreach and public programs further support New-York Historical’s intellectual mission to explore the richly layered political, cultural, and social history of New York and the nation, as well as the making and the meaning of history.

The New-York Historical Society offers several long- and short-term fellowships during the academic year. Designed to encourage and promote the use of the institution’s diverse collections of primary and secondary sources, the fellowships are open to scholars at various times during their academic careers.
