Residential fellowships in the Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral in Bad Ems are awarded to international visual artists. Furthermore a curator fellowship is awarded to a junior academic graduate (9-month Balmoral residential fellowship).
For the curator fellowship, mastery of the German language spoken and in writing as well as good knowledge of English is essential.
Aims and objectives
Artists’ residence Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral in Bad Ems was founded in 1995 and is a place of reflection, artistic production, discussion and meeting. It supports visual artists from all over the world by awarding artists-in-residence fellowships.
The Künstlerhaus is publicly presented through lectures, concerts and exhibitions. Works by the fellows are regularly shown in ‘Made in Balmoral’, the Künstlerhaus’s exhibition space in the Bad Ems city centre. Schloss Balmoral sees itself as an interface between artistic work and theoretical reflection and as a point of contact between former and present fellows. Balmoral intends to build a bridge between the artists’ present and their future.
Since 2013, fellowships are offered in one artistic genre or one theme each year. This offering, which is unique in Germany, is intended to enable deeper mutual creative cross-fertilisation among the resident artists. It will also lead to a more intensive specialist exchange of ideas with external artists, speakers, teachers, curators, etc.
For all fellows of a year funded by the Ministry of Science, Further Education and Culture and the foundation for culture of Rhineland-Palatinate a final exhibition at the historic rooms of the Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck will be realised at the beginning of the following year resp. the end of the fellowship.
Benefits and requirements
Balmoral fellowships are residential fellowships; continuous presence is obligatory.
The fellowships are endowed with 1,400 € a month.
