Project scholarship by Schwarzweiß Fotolabor 2021

The Schwarzweiß Fotolabor supports young and creative people with a summer grant  from July to August 2021 to work on a concrete exhibition project in autumn 2021.

In the digital age, analog materiality has a unique character. The processes of developing and enlarging have a special tactile quality. This requires a sensitivity for manual work and a sensitive eye. During the scholarship, these skills will be trained and artistic works will be created, which are related to the analogue processes.

Therefore it is important for us as a studio for analog handicraft that the influences of the photochemistry and the darkroom, which is different from the digital one, are clearly visible and reflected in the artistic works.

The scholarship includes the use of the lab for a period of up to six weeks and materials during July and August. Afterwards, there will be a presentation of the project in the exhibit spaces of the NAILS Projectroom. The exhibition will be curated in cooperation with Art in the museum.

Please send us your application with a significant portfolio (CV, motivation, concrete project idea, idea of how you would like to use the laboratory space, if applicable collaborators).

Applications are accepted until 15.3.21 by e-mail:
