Kuenstlerstaette Schloss Bleckede
Call for applications
Since 1979 the Kuenstlerstaette Schloss Bleckede has been seeking to
promote young artists who explore innovative positions in the field of
contemporary fine art. Today artists, whose work addresses complex
aesthetic, cultural or political issues, rarely find the necessary
support to realize their ambitious projects. This is why the
Kuenstlerstaette Schloss Bleckede wishes to offer these artists the
opportunity to develop their work in the course of a residential
scholarship of three or six months.
The Kuenstlerstaette Schloss Bleckede offers ideal working conditions.
The historic remise of the castle of Bleckede has been restored and
transformed into three studios, each of which provides an extensive
work space and a comfortable living area. The castle is located in the
nature reserve Elbufer Drawehn close to the river Elbe between Hamburg
and Lueneburg. Moreover Hamburg and Berlin is within easy reach, both
of which have a thriving cultural life. The scholarship includes a
monthly grant of Euro 1.400,- , which is made available for up to three
scholarship holders at any one time, by the state of Lower Saxony.
Previous scholarship winners have included reknown artists like Ulla
von Brandenburg, Shannon Bool, Geoffrey Hendricks, Peter Pommerer,
Katharina Sieverding, Maki Tamura and Simon Wachsmuth. The residential
scholarship will be selected by a jury.
The call for applications is open to all artists of all nationalities.
