Application Deadline: August 10th, 2021.
The Federal Ministry for Arts, Culture, the Civil Service and Sport in cooperation with the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna, is going to award a total of six scholarships for residency at the Mackey Apartments, Los Angeles, in 2021/2022. These scholarships are open to four free-lance artists, two advanced students of architecture, and graduates of architecture immediately after completion of their degree.
The MAK Center for Art and Architecture was founded and its main activities in the first few years were the cooperation with Friends of the Schindler House, the purchase of the Mackey Apartments, the inauguration of the MAK Schindler Scholarship Program Artists and Architects-in-Residence Program, the completion of the first stage of the renovation of Schindler House and its opening as a house museum, the beginning of activities at the MAK Center, and the restoration of the Mackey Apartments.
Innovations in art and architecture, new trends, and interdisciplinary developments that follow spatial structures and conceptual and experimental approaches are the focus of the international connections between Vienna and Los Angeles, which have been realized at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture since 1994.
In addition to exhibitions, MAK talks, symposia, and lectures held at Schindler House, the MAK Schindler Scholarship Program Artists and Architects-in-Residence Program at Schindler’s Mackey Apartments is an important part of these activities. The main focus of the Scholarship Program is on the purposeful long-term support of individual young artists and architects / students of architecture and on creating new interdisciplinary opportunities and confrontations through a lively exchange program.
The clear orientation towards experimentation at the borderline of art and architecture is at the center of the program. Due to its purposeful and practice-oriented structure (involvement in organizing the programs at Schindler House, cooperation with universities, artists and architects, and exhibition activities) the Scholarship Program provides an opportunity for a broad discourse with topical questions of art and architecture.
