Fellowship for Curators and Artists at Salzburg Summer Academy 2018

Fellowships Summer 2018 /



The Summer Academy is just such a place,where teachers and students explore clearly stated questions, where importance is accorded to the creativity of all participants, where the focus is on art production, theory and education. During the six-week period, some 300 students from more than 50 countries work for between one and four weeks, mostly in Hohensalzburg Fortress. The teachers, who usually come two years running, do not hold professorships at European academies of art; they are all active and successful in the global field of art. Directing the workshops is part of their artistic, curatorial or literary work. The Summer Academy has no curriculum, it is non-academic; all those who teach or study here are fired by enthusiasm, so that our program is hallmarked by intensity and diversity.

ERSTE Foundation offers fellowships for young artists and for emerging curators from Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia and Slovak Republic to take part in a course of their choice at the Salzburg Salzburg Summer Academy of Fine Arts.

The fellowships are designed for artists and curators at the beginning of their career and cover room and board, travel expenses and the participation fee for the course. Furthermore, the participants will be given the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and their experience, to reflect their own work, develop new ideas and get contacts on an international level.
