AIR―ARTIST IN RESIDENCE ― a multi-disciplinary program for architects, visual artists, musicians and writers— offers living and working spaces for a period of one to three months.
In order to promote international exchange, the federal state of Lower Austria has initiated an artist-in-residence program, for which it has set up five studio apartments and a large common room on the top floor of the former carpet factory within the Art Mile in Krems (Kunstmeile Krems). In order to ensure diversity and a vibrant atmosphere among the studios, the program will award its scholarships to artists from the fields of visual arts, literature, architecture and music.
Studio apartments are awarded based on the premise that foreign artists are to be given the opportunity to work in Lower Austria and get to know different art and cultural institutions in this country. By bringing foreign artists in contact with the Austrian artist scene, AIR—ARTIST IN RESIDENCE seeks to contribute to the internationalization of art in our country and to promote a process of interdisciplinary exchange in the arts.
Studio and living quarters will be provided free of charge. In addition, the artist-in-residence will also receive a sum of 1,300 Euro per month.
