Within the framework of the exhibition project »Requiem for a Failed State« (April 14 to August 5, 2018), HALLE 14 – Centre for Contemporary Art will award a residency fellowship to a visual artist. The exhibition asks about the long-term consequences of the GDR, which ceased to exist in 1990, as well as the time of the political changes and afterward, which reach into the present day and to a degree unconsciously determine our actions today. The exhibition will primarily present positions from young artists, including international ones.

We encourage visual artists from around the world born after December 31, 1979 to propose project ideas appropriate to the exhibition theme. In mid-December, a jury of independent art experts will choose the fellowship recipient from all applications that are complete and submitted by the deadline.

Within the framework of this residency, the fellowship recipient will be invited to work on the exhibition topic for three months (February 1 – April 30, 2018) in the HALLE 14 studio in the well-known Baumwollspinnerei Leipzig. The fellowship recipient will receive a monthly stipend of 1,000 Euros for three months, a one-time material fee of 500 Euros, travel expenses up to 500 Euros and a 140 m2 studio space. Artworks or project results that emerge during the residency period may be presented as part of the exhibition.

Application deadline: December 6, 2017
