Regarding artists working and living in Denmark, Faroe Islands, Greenland and Iceland
In 2020, the Goethe-Institut Denmark, in cooperation with the LIA Leipzig International Art Program, offers artists from Denmark and in particular the Færøer Islands and Greenland as well as Iceland the opportunity for a three-month artist residency at the Spinnerei Leipzig, from August to October 2020.
The artist residency grant includes:
We offer an 80 m² furnished studio to live and work in and a one-time payment of 500 € towards travel costs and material. Please note that the residency does not include any further fee or stipend. Therefor you might want to apply for further funding for travel, material and living costs in your home country.
The stipend also includes the participation in the LIA Autumn Group Show in September 2020 during the Spinnerei Leipzig Gallery Tour.
Full payment for the production of one print theme at the etching studio Atelier für Radierung Maria und Vlado Ondrej is included in the residency. This project aims at a Northern European print edition being produced to be part of a traveling exhibition given your permission. Please note, the team of the print studio also works with artists who do not work in the field of print making. They help and teach everything necessary.
