*Künstlerstätte Schloss Bleckede / Artist-in-Residence

Call for applications

Deadline: 29/09/07*

Since 1979 the Kuenstlerstaette Schloss Bleckede has been seeking to 
promote young artists who explore innovative positions in the field of 
contemporary fine art. Today artists, whose work addresses complex 
aesthetic, cultural or political issues, rarely find the necessary 
support to realize their ambitious projects. This is why the 
Kuenstlerstaette Schloss Bleckede wishes to offer these artists the 
opportunity to develop their work in the course of a residential 
scholarship of three or six months.

The Kuenstlerstaette Schloss Bleckede offers ideal working conditions. 
The historic remise of the castle of Bleckede has been restored and 
transformed into three studios, each of which provides an extensive work 
space and a comfortable living area. The castle is located in the nature 
reserve Elbufer Drawehn close to the river Elbe between Hamburg and 
Lueneburg. Moreover Hamburg and Berlin is within easy reach, both of 
which have a thriving cultural life. The scholarship includes a monthly 
grant of Euro 1.400,- , which is made available for up to three 
scholarship holders at any one time, by the state of Lower Saxony. 
Previous scholarship winners have included reknown artists like Ulla von 
Brandenburg, Shannon Bool, Geoffrey Hendricks, Peter Pommerer, Katharina 
Sieverding, Maki Tamura and Simon Wachsmuth. The residential scholarship 
will be selected by a jury.

The call for applications is open to all artists of all nationalities.
