Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral: Fellowships for Painting. 2014

Offering residential fellowships for international visual artists, the Künstlerhaus in Bad Ems, Germany, was founded in 1995 as a place of reflection, artistic production, discussion and meeting. It supports visual artists from all over the world by awarding a total of six artists-in-residence fellowships. For 2014, the residence fellowships will be awarded exclusively for painting. In future, each fellowship will be awarded for a different artistic genre. This offering, which is unique in Germany, is intended to enable deeper mutual creative cross-fertilisation among the resident artists. It will also lead to a more intensive specialist exchange of ideas with external artists, speakers, teachers, curators, etc.

Eligibility
Eligible to apply for a Balmoral fellowship are visual artists of any age from Germany and around the world. The focus of artistic work for the residential fellowships for 2014 must be on the medium of painting, whereby painting does not necessarily mean just ‘paint on canvas’. Formal and conceptual exploration of the limits and possibilities of the genre are also welcome.

The preconditions for applicants for the residential fellowships for visual artists are a completed course of study in art (M.F.A. or comparable) and three years of continuous artistic work after the conclusion of studies until the beginning of the fellowship. Applications are also possible for autodidacts distinguished by special artistic achievements, as documented by exhibitions and prizes. Knowledge of German or English is expected.

PhD position: Technology and Social Change, Linköping University, Sweden

Project: Urban infrastructure transformation from an STS perspective: Translating visions of Smart and Sustainable Cities.

Brief: Terms such as “Smart Cities”, “Smart Infrastructures” or “Eco-Cities” are increasingly employed to describe future visions of urban development and urban infrastructures and to design related policies or research programmes at national and European level. However, the question remains how such visions are actually translated into socio-material practices of infrastructural change. Do they give rise to new actor coalitions in cities? How are they used strategically by different actor groups? How do such ideas congeal into concrete projects of infrastructural change – at the level of technology, governance, institutions and practices? The aim of this PhD project is to explore these linkages and translation processes in a very small number of case studies of Swedish cities in a comparative perspective.
