time frame

The upco­m­ing Radio Art Resi­den­cy takes place from March 1 to May 29, 2020.


The pro­gram is addres­sed to artists working in the field of time-based and acoustic arts (radio, per­for­mance and sound artists). App­li­ca­ti­ons are open to artists from non-Ger­man spea­king coun­tries and without resi­dence in Germany.
Alt­hough expe­ri­ence in radio pro­duc­tion is not necessa­ri­ly requi­red, an inte­rest in the enga­ge­ment with the medi­um and in deve­lo­ping an artis­tic approach for radio is expected.

– FAQ – 

Is it pos­si­ble to post­po­ne the time frame of the residency?
The time frame of the resi­den­cy is sche­du­led for a stay of 90 days from March 1 to May 29, 2020, with a devia­ti­on of a maxi­mum of ten days.

Is it necessa­ry to par­ti­ci­pa­te in the ent­i­re three mon­ths (90 days) of the residency?
Yes, the scho­l­ar­s­hip obli­ges the artist to resi­de in Hal­le (Saa­le) for the ent­i­re three mon­ths and not be absent for more than 14 days.

Is it pos­si­ble to app­ly with a col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve project?
The resi­den­cy pro­gram is inten­ded for one artist. A shared fel­low­ship / col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve pro­ject would mean sharing the grant. Also, you have to be awa­re of addi­tio­nal cos­ts for accom­mo­da­ti­on and tra­vel expenses.

Is the accom­mo­da­ti­on appro­pria­te for families?
The artist resi­den­cy is only con­di­tio­nal­ly fami­ly-friend­ly, sin­ce the accom­mo­da­ti­on pro­vi­ded is a sin­gle room apartment.
