Short-term Residencies 2020
in cooperation with
Schaumbad – Freies Atelierhaus Graz and Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen

Since summer 2013, studio das weisse haus offers Short-term Residencies for international art professionals. In the light of these challenging times and as an immediate reaction to the travel regulations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have now opened this program for Austria based artists and organized a joint exchange program with Schaumbad – Freies Atelierhaus Graz and Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen. Many thanks to Andrea Sadjak and Eva Ursprung as well as Andrei Siclodi and Mirjam Kapelari for supporting this opportunity.

Founded in 2008, Schaumbad – Freies Atelierhaus Graz is currently situated in a 2.000 m2 space, which is divided into sculptor studios, offices, a photo and video studio, a sound laboratory and a spacious exhibition room. A somewhat smaller communication and event area, as well as studio spaces for artists from different fields is located on the upper floor.

Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen is a post-graduate center for production, research, mediation in the fields of visual arts and art theory. Within the framework of the fellowship program, the Künstlerhaus offers a platform that facilitates the development and production of artistic and art-theoretical projects in a critical context. At the same time, Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen creates a forum for direct exchange between professionals – artists, theoreticians, critics, and curators – from the region and abroad as well as a point of interaction with local publics of interest. Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen is affiliated with the Tyrolean Artists’ Association, the major association of visual artists from the region.

The focus of her work lies on collecting material, that narrates something about the actual condition of the world according to the current project. The material is the basis for comics, series of drawings and monatges for prints. She writes lyrics for the Band STROBLAK and is part of TONTO COMICS.

It was found in 2013 by artists and urbanists Marleen Leitner and Michael Schitnig. The initial position of their artistic demands is the assertion, that the UTOPIA has to be understood neither as a failed plan nor as a building task. It rather serves as tool and method to work critically and artistically not doomed to failure, but as a way to change the world.

Her work is centered around questions concerning the perception and formation of reality. She is especially interested in the aesthetic thinking which exemplifies the continuous transformation of the world through our imagination using the experience of art and its perception processes. 
Andrea Sadjak

The ​tension between human inner and outer perception and consequently between the individual and society is the main focus of her artistic practice. The transitions and thresholds between them, their nature as a contact surface, are revealed in the process-related discussion on site: the main working medium is clay, which becomes a storage and archive of what has been there.
