AIR – ARTIST IN RESIDENCE Niederösterreich

Every year, up to fifty fellows are invited to Krems together
with the project partners (Province of Lower Austria – Art
and Culture Department, Galerie Stadtpark, Kunsthalle
Krems, Karikaturmuseum Krems, NÖ Festival and Kino
GmbH, ORTE Lower Austrian Architecture Network, Unabhängiges
Literaturhaus NÖ). Each guest artist is provided
one of five live-work apartments. Throughout the entire
residency, artists receive ongoing assistance and curator ial
support in realizing their artistic projects. So that the
diversity of contemporary artistic practices can be fully
appreciated, AIR focuses on connecting artists and their
approaches to existing art and cultural institutions in
Lower Austria and Vienna.

Residency Programme since: 2000
Description of Organisation:

AIR – ARTIST IN RESIDENCE Lower Austria is a multidisciplinary fellowship program located in Krems an der Donau.
The program gives architects, visual artists, musicians, and
writers the opportunity to live and work in Lower Austria
for a period of one to three months and to get to know the
entire spect um of local cultural institutions. In turn, AIR
organizes residencies for Lower Austrian artists across
Europe and overseas in conjunction with international –
exchange partnerships.
In addition to realizing exhibitions, concerts, readings, and
workshops, particular emphasis is placed on the production
of work on site. In the broadest sense, the aim is to facilitate

articulation and presentation, as well as to reflect on and
