  • The Institute for Art in Public Space Styria (KiöR) is holding a one-stage, open call competition. Within this framework, aspiring regional artists as well as established international artists of all disciplines are invited to deal with the topic OPEN FIELDS – Art and Agriculture.

    This will initially take the form of stays with one farmer in Styria for a minimum of two to a maximum of four weeks, if possible, as early as 2022. These stays will be organized by the Institute for Art in Public Space Styria, covering all areas of agriculture from mountain farmers to winegrowers (fruit, vegetable, grain cultivation, animal husbandry, forestry and dairy farming, etc.) in various Styrian regions. As the result of the insights gained from this stay, a temporary work is to be developed and implemented either this year or in 2023 at the respective location.

    Further information and submissions:

  • Board and lodging are free for stays on the farms, and travel expenses will also be covered. The project is to be documented as well as possible (with photos, videos...). There is no fixed amount available to cover the project costs, but rather a partial amount from a total budget of € 100,000.
  • Please use our form on the website (here).

    • Personal data (first and last name, date of birth, address, e-mail, telephone number)
