Call for Applications: Artists-in-residence project
On the Move
Deadline for submission (postmark) is December 19, 2005
Air_cruise 2006 is an artists-in-residence project in the
frame of the Culture 2000 project "Against / Within" by
Forum Stadtpark, Graz / Austria in cooperation with Galerie
für zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig / Germany, J.E. Purkyne
University, Faculty of Art and Design, Ústí nad Labem /
Czech Republic, and the Institute of Contemporary Art,
Dunaújvaros / Hungary.

Project Description:
Six artists will be on the move from one city to the next for
eight weeks, in each of which they will stay for two weeks
and do some research and work. They are asked to investigate
the urban structures of the cities from this point of view. Four
very different cities have been chosen for the air_cruise 2006:
Leipzig, Ústí nad Labem, Dunaújvaros, and Graz.
How is political, economical, social, and cultural development
shown in urban structures and how is it characterised by the
citizens? How much does a city reveal of its specific character
if you stay there only for a little while? Can the artist make visible
developments, structures and characters and/or visions that lead
to a change? To use this situation offers various possibilities that
shall lead to a work of art that will be shown in the exhibition at
Emil Filla Gallery in Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic, and will
be published in the general catalogue of the project.

The call for entries is directed to artists working with different
media. The actual residencies of the air_cruise 2006 will take
place in two periods, either February/March or April/May. The
artists will be in close connection to the institutions that will
host the project.

Selection / Jury:
The artist selection will be made on the basis of the applications
submitted by a jury consisting of representatives of each partner
institution. The jury meeting will take place in mid-January.
