4. For the twelfth time in 18 years the international residency program
Akademie Schloss Solitude – located in Stuttgart, Germany – is granting
approx. 65 residency fellowships of three to twelve months in duration. A
public foundation opened in 1990 and funded by the State of Baden-
Wurttemberg, the Akademie Schloss Solitude operates an international
residency program awarding live/work fellowships to artists. Hundreds of
artists from over 70 countries have developed and advanced projects at the
Akademie since its opening, creating a close-knit, global network of
Solitude alumni that expands from year to year.
For the second time, the application round also offers the possibility to
apply for a residency fellowship in the art, science & business program.
Scholars, scientists and professionals from the disciplines of the
Humanities, the Natural Sciences and Economics (individually or suggested
business) are invited to apply. The art, science & business program`s goal
promote the dialogue between art, the humanities, science, business and
other professional endeavors, as it no longer considers the arts, science
and business as separate, discrete activities. Instead, these areas can be
seen as complementary to one another and their combination holds the
potential to create a dynamic and fruitful exchange.
Persons up to 35 or who have completed a university or college degree
within the past five years are welcome to apply. Currently enrolled
university or college students (at the time of application) will not be
considered for selection. Each fellowship recipient is granted Euro 1000
per month, in

chairperson and specialist jurors who independently allocate the
fellowships for their respective disciplines.

Princeton/USA (Architecture), Dan Graham, New York/USA (Visual Arts),
Christoph Schlingensief, Berlin/Germany (Performing Arts), Yves Béhar, San
