AICA AUSTRIA: Art Critic Residency in Vienna

The Austrian Section of the International Art Critics Association AICA is pleased to announce a residency program for international art critics. 

The residency is located in a 120 square meter apartment in the 3rd district of Vienna, close to the city centre with a great number of art museums. The apartment is part of the Kunst Haus Wien, Vienna´s museum which focuses on photography and holds the collection of Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928 – 2000). 

Hundertwasser designed the building in 1991 in his own artistic style. 'It is a house that does not follow the usual standards, an adventure of modern times, a journey into a country of creative architecture,' Hundertwasser said. 

The residency apartment used to be Hundertwasser´s private home, including an extraordinary 200 square meter roof top garden – the oldest one in Vienna. 

The residency will be from mid-August until mid-September 2015. AICA AUSTRIA will pay for the flight and provide 1000,- Euros for the four weeks' stay. The art critic should start the residency with an informal talk in English or German, presenting his/her local art scene in a semi-public talk. At the end AICA Austria expects an informal talk giving his/her impressions about the stay. 

Applications: The art critic should have at least 5 years of experience in continuously publishing on contemporary art in art magazines or newspapers. Applicants should send 3 short reviews and 2 longer essays on contemporary art, a photograph, CV and a list of publications. 

Please send applications to: 

mid-August to mid September 2015 

Deadline: May 16, 2015
