The residency program takes place in the monument award-winning "Schießl-Haus" in Kollnburg. During the two-month residency at SCHIESSLHAUS AiR, the guest artists are provided with living, working and exhibition spaces. The artists form a residential community in which each artist has a private room. The guest artists are supervised by the artistic directors of SCHIESSLHAUS AIR. For everyday concerns there is a direct contact person on site.
The modern and functional furnishings of the artists’ residence create optimal living and working conditions. On the first floor of the artists’ residence are the common areas: a cozy living room with a wood-burning stove, a fully equipped kitchen with a seating area, a storage room, and two sanitary rooms (bathroom and toilet). The upper floor is divided into three spacious individual rooms. The light-flooded, shared studio (approx. 22 sqm) is also located on the upper floor. Additionally, the individual private rooms can be used as workrooms.
