Open call for the Round 2023/2024
3 fully paid residency slots at AIR InSILo
Deadline: July 20, 2023, 16.00 CEST
The Global COVID-19 pandemic, a full-scale war in Ukraine, and a devastating natural disaster in Syria and Turkey – are just a few examples that exacerbated the life and work insecurity of people in general and artists/ cultural workers in particular. This call, the '(Un)limited artistic resource', aims to study and reflect the labour conditions of artists and cultural workers and focuses on the material side of creative production in terms of deficiency.

During the next 2023/24 round, AIR InSILo aims to create a space for reflection and self-reflection of an artist working in a neoliberal contemporaneity and is looking for artistic and curatorial contributions:

– which have a shape and form of intervention (to any private/ public/third/ existing/ physical/ digital/ imaginary space);
– which critically reflect artistic labour;
– which demonstrate awareness about the deficiency of artistic production and are capable of demonstrating it artistically;
– which are not afraid to work with 'poor material';
– which reflect on the speed and purpose of art labour, art production and art consumption;

We offer:

• 5-week residence in AIR InSilo, Lower Austria;
• A honorarium of 1000 Euros;
• A honorarium for the shortlist of 80 Euros;
• Production costs of up to 500 Euros;
• A coverage of travel costs of up to 300 Euros;
• A coverage of transport costs of up to 50 Euros;
• An opportunity to stay with a partner and/or 1-2 children;
• Usage of the facilities and equipment provided by the AIR InSilo;
• Featuring in the InSilo Magazine.
June 2023: 3010 Euros collected
As many of you know, AIR InSILo has its Emergency Program. We host and pay living stipends to artists whose life is under threat. The war in Ukraine shows us how important it is to solidarize and give a hand right at the moment without waiting for the loud promises of the prominent institutions. We are thankful to our donors – private individuals and public associations, especially to the citizens of Hollabrunn, Elena, Alexandra, Cornelia, Dmitry, Max, Gustavo, Georg, Astrid, Roswitha, Elva, Maria, Rainer, Elisabetta, ÖH AkBild, Ale and others. With their help, we collected more than 3010 Euros and continue to raise funds.
During March, April, and May 2022, the residence was hosting and subsidising artists and cultural workers: Tereza Barabash and her son (Lviv, UA), Yuliia Pendrak and her daughter (Lviv, UA), Daria Hetmanova (Mariupol, UA). During the round 2022/23 we host Olha Pylnyk with her two children, Oleksandr Sirous, Dmytro Tentiuk, and Danil Siabro (Kyiv, UA).

We need your further help to continue supporting those fleeing war. To help us to help, you can purchase artwork from the online store of AIR InSILo. You can subscribe to the PATREON or donate directly via PayPal.
