AIR_Frankfurt: Open Call for visual artists

Kuala Lumpur and Frankfurt/ Main created a three-month residency exchange program for young Malaysian artists. The residency of the Malysian artist takes place in October, November and December 2017 with project partner Basis e.V. in the city of Frankfurt, Germany.
The project partners are The City of Frankfurt, basis.e.V, Lostgens Contemporary Art Space and the Goethe-Institut Malaysia. The program aims to foster international interaction between Frankfurt and Malaysian artists. The idea is, in the course of three-month artist residencies, for artists from Malaysia and Frankfurt to have an opportunity to attain new artistic input abroad, creating new work and building their international network.

This program is intended for young artists who live and work in Malaysia. The artists should be highly qualified and successful graduates of an art college. To be fluent in English is a further requirement. Applicants are selected by a jury appointed by the relevant city. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
The Residency

The residency program provides the chosen artist with the flight costs, accommodation, a studio and a monthly grant of EUR 1000.

Applicants are selected by a panel of juries appointed by the relevant city. An independent jury awards up to five candidates and proposes them to the partner-city, Frankfurt. The director of the program at the partner-city selects one artist out of the five nominees.
