REAKTOR: Visual Arts Residency to Produce a Site-responsive Work (Austria)


REAKTOR is a privately run transdisciplinary art institution based in Vienna. Over a total surface area of 1,200 m2, various forms of artistic expression are brought together and made accessible to the public. The focus is on film, space-defining art and music theatre, new music, jazz and experimental interpretations of contemporary music.

REAKTOR’s cross-disciplinary programme features works that are imbued with the spirit of the times. Indeed, what is still considered experimental today may well one day be perceived as timelessly permanent. That is particularly true of contemporary art. The REAKTOR’s call for concepts is designed to seek out that very potential in the visual arts, hence the title Potenziale. Particular emphasis is to be placed on space-defining art for the REAKTOR’s architectural core, i.e. its main hall.

The chosen artists will be invited to flesh out and implement their submitted concept as part of a one week’s residency in summer 2022 and then showcase it to the public as part of an exhibition in autumn 2022.

A budget of up to 3500 EUR is available for the exhibition production, together with practical assistance from REAKTOR’s technical team. Travel expenses and board & lodging will be paid separately for by the REAKTOR.

Deadline: 30 April 2022
