Bibliothek Andreas Züst > Studio Residencies for Cultural Workers (Switzerland)

Twice annually — respectively for the months of April and November — , the Bibliothek Andreas Züst offers three studio residency stipends. The length of stay is a total of four weeks. Application for the Studio Residency Stipend is open to national and international cultural workers (individuals or teams of up to a maximum of four persons) across disciplines — visual arts, literature, new media, music, theatre, design, architecture, film, photography, and art-related disciplines. For the stipendiaries, the Alpenhof panorama lodge will provide for accommodations. Applicants must submit a statement specifying their specific interests and describing their motivation in seeking a residency. The Bibliothek Andreas Züst is especially seeking projects that deal with the library as a whole or one of its sub-areas. The Studio Residency Stipend program is to be considered in the tradition of libraries as places of knowledge in the sense of diversity. In short: the residency should entail research about what constitutes the fabric of our culture and also what goes beyond it.

Application Process

Application deadlines are respectively 30 April for a residency during the following November, and 30 September for a stay during the following April. Selections for the studio residency stipends take place through a panel consisting of representatives of the Bibliothek Andreas Züst as well as an external jury. Acceptance and rejection notices will be sent respectively by the middle of July / middle of December.
