International exchange of guest studios
The city of Salzburg has been renting a guest studio that is used for the artist exchange program since 1986. The city of Salzburg works closely with public and private institutions in Europe and in the US, where it has established an artist exchange program with selected cities, which is regularly joined by new partners. The program promotes cooperation between culturally-minded and active cities and is based on mutual exchange on equal terms.
Specifically this means that the city of Salzburg provides foreign artists with the opportunity to live and work in Salzburg for 1 to 2 months. To this end, the city makes available a live-in studio in the Künstlerhaus. In return, artists from Salzburg have the opportunity to live and work in a studio in the partner cities for an equivalent period of time under the same conditions. The objective of this special cultural promotion is to offer the artists the opportunity to gather new impression and practical experience and to assimilate these into their work. The stay also serves to establish new contacts and to set up a network between the participating artists and cities on this basis.
