Studio14: What happened to God? (2011)
Deadline: 20 May, 2011
In 2011, with the start of the International Fellowship Programme Studio14, the centre for contemporary art HALLE 14 will for the first time award two residency fellowships to artists. The programme invites artists from around the world to work for three months (June 30 - September 30, 2011) in a studio at the world-famous Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei. The theme for the current programme is "What Happened to God?" An independent jury of art experts will meet on May 25, 2011 to select two fellowship recipients from the applications, which must arrive at HALLE 14 by May 20, 2011.
The fellowship recipients will receive a monthly stipend of 1,000 Euros and a one-time materials fee of 500 Euros, travel expenses up to 600 Euros, a studio space and a flat. In 2011, the fellowship also includes participation in a 14-day European Artist Exchange Workshop (August 15-28, 2011) that HALLE 14 has organised in cooperation with Wiels Centre for Contemporary Art Brussels (BE) and Maumaus School for Visual Art Lisbon (PT). The two fellowship holders from HALLE 14 will meet in Leipzig with two fellows from each partner institution to take part in a joint programme.
The work created during the fellowship may be exhibited in HALLE 14 during the September Gallery Tour of the Spinnerei (September 17-18, 2011).
