Fellowship for Curators and Artists at Salzburg Summer Academy 2019

Fellowships Summer 2019 /



The Summer Academy is such a place,where teachers and students explore clearly stated questions, where importance is accorded to the creativity of all participants, where the focus is on art production, theory and education.
Founded in 1953 by Oskar Kokoschka as the "School of Vision", in Hohensalzburg Fortress, it is the oldest of its kind in Europe.
Every year, some 300 participants from more than 50 countries attend some 20 courses offered in two fixed locations: Hohensalzburg Fortress and the Kiefer quarry in Fürstenbrunn, as well as in further temporary spaces in the town of Salzburg.
Well-known artists, curators and critics from all over the world offer courses focusing on topical questions of art production, as well as curatorial practice and writing about art.

ERSTE Foundation offers 10 fellowships, 5 for young artists and 5 for emerging curators from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, the Slovak Republic and Slovenia to take part in a course of their choice at the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg 2019.
Salzburg Summer Academy of Fine Arts.

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.
