Fellowships Summer 2015
The production of meaning
In our society, characterised as it is by financial capitalism, money and capital play a pivotal role. Thus in the art world, too, galleries, auctions and wealthy collectors from many countries are important protagonists; the art market with its great economic significance, is the focus of much attention. Today, looking at society as a whole, it sometimes seems as though money were the principal criterion for measuring the success of the individual, of a company, an institution or a country. To counteract this, it is particularly important to raise the question of the purpose of our (individual or social) actions. So the production of meaning – taken from the title of Jayce Salloum’s course – is the motto of the Summer Academy’s course programme 2015.
ERSTE Foundation offers fellowships for young artists and for emerging curators from Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and Slovak Republic to take part in a course of their choice at the Salzburg Summer Academy of Fine Arts (20 July – 29 August 2015).
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.
