Artist-in-Residence programme at Q21/MuseumsQuartier Vienna 2023

general information /

The Artist-in-Residence Programme at Q21/MuseumsQuartier in Vienna is part of ERSTE Foundation’s long-termed endeavour to support contemporary art and to strengthen the situation of its creators, especially in the region of Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. The residence program is realized together by tranzit, Igor Zabel Association and Kontakt Collection. Kontakt Collection will collaborate with the Zagreb based WHW Akademija.

The residencies are designed for artists, curators and theoreticians from Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovak Republic and Slovenia working in the field of contemporary visual art to do research in their respective area.
Given the urgency, we would like to express our solidarity with Ukraine and the people who have to endure or flee from the ongoing war there. We are therefore opening the "Artist-in-Residence Program at Q21/MQ in Vienna" to Ukrainian artists and curators and are dedicating the first half of the year 2023 to them: Three residency places of two months go to artists from Ukraine. The remaining six months will be divided into one-months stays for CEE participants.

The research character of the residence should make it possible to take a break from the everyday strenuous production pressure and find time to concentrate on a specific interest. The participants are given the opportunity to live and work for the period of two months in one of the MuseumsQuartier studios right in the heart of Vienna.

Together with its long-time project partners from,,,,, Igor Zabel Association and Kontakt Collection/WHW Akademija, ERSTE Foundation forms the jury to select the participants.
