OPEN CALL CURATORIAL RESIDENCY at studios das weisse haus and TBA21-Academy / Thyssen - Bornemisza Art Contemporary Foundation (TBA21)
Deadline: June 26, 2013


Studios das weisse haus studios das weisse haus is a new residence and studio program for local and international artists, curators and theorists. The program was started by the Viennese art association das weisse haus, which was founded in December 2007 and has been set out to support and promote emerging artists by providing a space for presentation and discourse. The idea first emerged when das weisse haus had a temporary residence program at its first location in 2008. Ever since that establishing a studio and residence program has been a wish and it took about five years to turn an idea into a project. Offering a space where international and local artists and curators can work and live together became the main purpose of the new program "studios das weisse haus".

Within the framework of the TBA21-Academy program, you will assist in the curatorial process in preparing the Academy expeditions and events on and off board of the research vessel Dardanella along the Pacific Ocean from Costa Rica to Alaska.

Furthermore you will support the preparation of a research symposium on a new pavilion commission that will focus on an iconic barometer of the changing enviroment, the world´s threatened coral reefs. The seminar will bring together leading architects, sound artists, marine biologists, climate specialists, conservationists and engineers to the consider challenges and solutions required to realise this project.

Also you will write informative and scholarly texts for Academy presentations, work with the PR department in the preparation of social media postings (facebook, etc.) and work on a concept for a publication series.

Within the framework of studios das weisse haus program you will present a project (related to your curatorial work at TBA21-Academy, former shows, etc.) at the end of the residency in form of a screening, lecture or symposium.
