AIR Mission Statement

The Artist-in-Residence program (AIR) of the Schafhof – European Center for Art Upper Bavaria is open to artists from across Europe. The artists and their personal and artisticneeds form the focal point of the artist-in-residence program.

The location in the midst of nature and the exceptional architecture create an atmosphere in which artists can concentrate on their own work, while they can also integrate into the rich contemporary art scene of Munich and Upper Bavaria.

The values of a borderless, open and free continent, a Europe of regions, are reflected in the program’s purpose and meaning. Forming the main themes are the two poles of technology and nature as central pillars of a modern and sustainable community, which is fostered by the setting and facilities of the art center.

The Schafhof is a public institution of the Bezirk Oberbayern. The District Council of Upper Bavaria set up a scholarship for contemporary artists in 2005 with the aim to promote European ideals and enrich the region’s cultural life.

Application

The AIR at Schafhof operates on the base on artist exchange projects with partner institutions outside Germany in an European country. Applications for a residency at the Schafhof need to be submitted to the partner organisation in the framework of an exchange project.

There is no possibility to apply individually for a residency directly at Schafhof. But we are happy about any contact with a potential partner organisation in any European country.
