Artist Residency
Deadline: June 30

Kuenstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral, Germany

To mark the 25th anniversary of the Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral, artists are invited to submit applications for their international residential fellowships. Each fellowship is endowed with €1,400 a month.

Eligibility to apply for a Balmoral fellowship are visual artists of any age from Germany and around the world. 

The preconditions for applicants for the residential fellowships for visual artists are a completed course of study in art (M.F.A. or comparable) and three years of continuous artistic work after the conclusion of studies until the beginning of the fellowship. Applications are also possible for autodidacts distinguished by special artistic achievements, as documented by exhibitions and prizes. Knowledge of German or English is expected.

Theme: The title of this year’s theme, ‘KUR – Art of Travel’ is an allusion to the history of the town of Bad Ems and its tradition as a fashionable and sophisticated spa (Kur) resort in the 19th Century. Even then, artists were among its international guests. Where more than a century ago the former Hotel Schloss Balmoral was host to visitors from around the world to this spa resort, the present Künstlerhaus has for 25 years now been welcoming international fine artists. On the occasion of our own anniversary we invite you to examine the significance of (artists’) travel in the context of the mobile art scene and current artistic production.

Benefits and Requirements: Balmoral fellowships are residential fellowships; continuous presence is obligatory. The fellowships are endowed with 1,400€ a month. Two fellowships are awarded for the period of three months. Four fellowships are awarded for the period of nine months. All residential fellowships run from June each year.

All artists invited will have their registered residence in Bad Ems for the time of their stay (compulsory registration). Artists must be free of all professional commitments for the period of their fellowships.

The fellowship holders are provided free of charge with a furnished room in the artists’ residence for living and sleeping, with shower/WC and a studio. Due to the historic nature the building is not barrier-free and the apartments and studios in terms of their size and equipment are normally only suitable for one single person. The conditions of use are governed by the House Rules, which the fellowship holder must observe. The artists’ residence bears all ancillary costs including water, electricity and heating. The lounge, the dining room and the kitchen are for joint use. Pets are not admitted.

The fellows may use free of charge an in house wood workshop and a library containing approx. 6,000 books, mainly on modern and contemporary art, and the major art magazines.
