Call for the AICA AUSTRIA art critic residency

for ART CRITICS, not for artists, architects or philosophy-students – for ART CRITICS!

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

The residency is located in a 120 square meter apartment in the 3rd district in Vienna, close to the inner city with a great number of art museums. The appartment is part of the Kunst Haus Wien, Vienna´s museum which focuses on photography and holds the collection of the austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. 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. AICA AUSTRIA will pay for the flight and provide 1000,- Euro 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 we expect an informal talk giving his/her impressions about the stay.
