Since four years, Hybrid Plattform has been in cooperation with Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart. This public foundation offers an interdisciplinary and international fellowship program for artists. Furthermore, with the “art, science & business” program, young researchers and representatives of the business world are offered residency fellowships.
A part of the cooperation are residencies at the Akademie for researchers of the UdK Berlin and TU Berlin. Every year the program offers for one researcher of the Campus Charlottenburg a studio at the Akademie, free of charge, for a period of three months. Grant payments are not provided; remuneration payments and one-time travel expenses are handed by the sending organization.
A stay is possible from October to December 2017. The researchers may use the premises for their own research. A fortuitous outcome of the stay would be a joint event by the Akademie and the Hybrid Plattform on a topic of the selected researchers’ choosing. It is expected that they actively participate in academy life and get into contact with other fellowship recipients.
There is particular interest in exchanges with engineers and natural scientists. In 2016/17, the Akademie is dedicating its “art, science & business” program to the main topic “The Practice of History in Everyday Life”. An international symposium will be organized on November 23/24, 2017. Experts on this theme are also encouraged to apply.
Currently we are again looking for fellowship candidates who would like to work at the Akademie for three months. We invite prospective researchers to apply by Friday, June 30, 2017, with a letter of motivation, a CV and a description of the current work. Please e-mail your application documents to Nina Horstmann.
