Grants at the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg
NUMEROUS GRANTS at the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts
22 July – 31 August 2013
Applications by 10 April 2013
The Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts is awarding some 90 grants, which cover either the course fees together with travel and living costs, or the course fees only.
The 2013 programme is diverse and multifaceted, ranging from stone sculpture to media art, from “arte útil” (useful art) to jewellery design and on to curatorial practice. The focus is on exploration, defining and interpreting the terrain where art is produced, presented and communicated – as well as on the inevitable disillusionment that occasionally arises, and the subsequent re-enchantment. Students will be given assistance in discovering their own artistic cosmos and creating scope for development. The 21 courses, of between one and four weeks, are held in three locations: Hohensalzburg Fortress, the old salt factory (Alte Saline) in Hallein and the Kiefer quarry in Fürstenbrunn.
