The residency program is open for visual artists of all disciplines, as well as for other creative fields such as film, theater, literature, architecture, sound, design, and music. We especially encourage applications that seek to pursue interdisciplinary approaches at the interfaces of art, theatre, science/theory, media and technology.
Applications are open to individual artists and/or artists’ collectives from Germany and abroad. There is no age restriction. It is compulsory to stay at the residence during the three-month residency. Short-term absences are possible. Arrival and departure should be +/- one day of the chosen residency period.
By participating in the residency program, the guest artists agree to participate in three public events of the SCHIESSLHAUS AiR program: the Jour Fixe (project presentations, networking event, workshop), the Kollnburg Art Sunday (Open Studio Day) and the final exhibition (group show at the end of the residency period).
In addition, the participation in the residency program requires a short report on the residency experience either in written form, in the form of a photo album, a video/audio documentation or similar.
The residency program takes place in the monument award-winning "Schießl-Haus" in Kollnburg. During the three-month residency at SCHIESSLHAUS AiR, the guest artists are provided with living, working and exhibition spaces. The guests form a residential community in which each artist has a private room. The artists in residence are supervised by the artistic directors of the SCHIESSLHAUS AIR. For everyday concerns there is a direct contact person on site.
The modern and functional furnishings of the artists’ residence create optimal living and working conditions. On the first floor of the artists’ residence are the common areas: a cozy living room with a wood-burning stove, a fully equipped kitchen with a seating area, a storage room, and two sanitary rooms (bathroom and toilet). The upper floor is divided into three spacious individual rooms. The light-flooded, shared studio (approx. 22 sqm) is also located on the upper floor. Additionally, the individual private rooms can be used as workrooms.
