is there an artist's fee?

No, unfortunately there is not. But we are trying our best to make that possible in the next years.

does my art have to stay in the villages?

Your art remains your work and therefore your property. However, the idea of medienfrische is that, by the end of your stay, something is gifted to the Bschlabertal. Your work will be preserved in the Kunstspeicher, an art repository in Bschlabs, which in the best case will eventually become a museum. This way, the contents are already there and act as a foundation for that project in the future.

can i travel by car?

Yes, of course. More so, it would be convenient if some of the artists travel by car. This way, they can drive to the supermarket in the nearest village from time to time and, for example, bring something to eat for those artists who are less mobile.

can i bring my children?

Yes, that is no problem. Unfortunately, we cannot provide separate rooms for the children. Everything the children need must be brought by the parents themselves. The cost of the meals is €10 per child per day. The medienfrische cannot assume any liability or costs for children. However, we are of course happy to welcome any children who want to accompany their parents.

are pets allowed?

Unfortunately, no animals or pets are allowed in any of our residencies.

is it possible to participate with little to no knowledge of german?

Yes, it is possible. You can also find the application form in English here: open call

as a visitor, what is there to see and when should i come?

Everyday from 25th May to 26th June 2022, there will be something to see. Exhibitions and places worth seeing will be displayed at the village square in Bschlabs. You could watch an artist at work, visit an exhibition or explore a farmhouse – there is always something to discover. There will also be events (e.g. concerts, music evenings or readings), which will be listed separately here: timetable
