Akademie Schloss Solitude Namibia Residency Program now is over!
Akademie Schloss Solitude is happy to announce its new residency program in Namibia for artists from Germany working across the fields of visual arts, literature/journalism, and digital practices.
Akademie Schloss Solitude together with the National Art Gallery of Namibia and the Goethe-Institut Namibia is establishing a new residency program that will be committed to a long-term artistic and cultural exchange between Namibia and Germany.
The residencies are organized in the framework of the project »Colonial Heritage – Shared Futures« which aims for a collective engagement with the histories of colonial relations between Namibia and Germany and the development of new forms of artistic narratives around this topic.
Artists across the fields of visual arts (also encompassing performance, sound, and socially-engaged art), literature/journalism (encompassing prose, poetry, as well as digital journalism), and digital practice (encompassing digital art, computing, hacking, gaming) can apply for a four-months residency. The fellowship will provide the opportunity to engage artistically with the project’s topics restitution/reparation, cultures of remembrance, and digital colonialism.
➜ A project outline that deals with the topics of restitution/reparation, cultures of remembrance, or digital colonialism in an artistic way (max. 1 Din A4 page),
➜ A short biography and informative portfolio or documentation of previous artistic work.
➜ All documents can be sent in
