The Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art will award three Grants for Media Art of the Foundation of Lower Saxony (€12,500 each). The Foundation of Lower Saxony grant at the Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art supports a wide spectrum of media art, from video art and net-based projects to audio works and audio-visual installations. 
 
Each of the three grants will be awarded for the production of a new project in the area of media art. The grant is valid for a duration of six months (July–December 2021). It cannot be prolonged and residency is compulsory; grant recipients can expect to stay in Oldenburg at least one month.
 
Conditions:
 
  • The project or artistic work should be completed within the six-month duration of the grant. However, an extension up until April 2022 can be negotiated.
 
  • Both individual artists and artist groups can apply; however, the grant amount is the same for groups as for individuals
 
  • Grant recipients are expected to be involved in the activities of the Edith-Russ-Haus, including, for example, running workshops and giving presentations and artist talks. The dates of such activities will be arranged in consultation with the Edith-Russ-Haus.
 
  • Beyond the grant amount of €12,500 and the possibility of using one of the guest apartments at the Edith-Russ-Haus, no further costs will be covered during the residency (such as technical means, production means, travel expenses, and living expenses incurred during the grant period).
