The Culture Department of the City of Frankfurt am Main has conducted an Artist in Residence Program since the year 1990 together with international partner cities. To date, around 100 artists from Frankfurt have enjoyed the opportunity of a cultural interchange and just as many artists from abroad have taken part in the program here.
From now on Air_Frankfurt and the production and exhibition platform basis e.V. will be maintaining the Artist-in-Residence-Program together. The aim of the cooperation is to increase the curatorial focus on the program and to involve the artists within the during operation of an art institution. Thereby the artist will be supported individually and the residency should serve to establish new contacts that could be beneficial for creative achievements of the future.
The partner cities of 2017 are Antwerp and Strasbourg (see current Open Call for Visual Artists). Seoul and an additional city (to be announced) will accommodate an artist in the second half of the year. Young artists who predominantly live and work in Frankfurt can apply for the residency. Applicants are selected by a jury appointed by the relevant city. The grant includes a monthly per diem of 1.000 Euro. Each city offers a studio and an apartment for the artist.
Visual artists can apply for the residency in Antwerp and Strasbourg from now on. Application deadline: October 15, 2016
