About the product

Since 2016 AWAY - a project around residencies, under the leadership of Alexandra Grausam, has been highlighting the renowned Artists Residency Program, in which the Federal Chancellery of Austria has been sending local artists into the world since the 1970s. With the exhibition Stories from abroad, in the same year, this important area of Austrian art funding was made visibile to the broader public for the first time. A theoretical examination of the topic took place in talks and a symposium with experts, comprised in the Laboratory, AWAY's discursive program.

The book is divided into five parts, each containing a theoretical text as well as an artistic contributions, statements and diary entries of the participating scholarship holders. While the first chapter is devoted to the historical development of residence programs and the studio program of the Federal Chancellery, the following section describes the extensive and diverse concept of AWAY - a project around residencies. The third part focuses on different destinations and the associated mobility of artists. The last two chapters explore the questions of dealing with the particular location and its concrete retrospective effect on the artistic work.
