The Austrian Federal Chancellery and its Division II – Arts and Culture have sent Austrian artists all over the world since the 1970s. AWAY – a project around residencies showcases the renowned international residency programme of the Federal Chancellery on a large scale for the first time.
The AWAY exhibition presents art resulting from the temporary re-location of 106 artists as well as the stimuli provided by a foreign residency grant for their artistic work. Stories from abroad is temporarily located in a former Imperial and Royal Post and Telegraph Office built in 1909-1910. Set up on four floors and 2,700 m², it reveals a panorama of the different residency destinations and the stories brought home from those locations. The exhibition curated by Alexandra Grausam and Genoveva Rückert starts on the 4th floor by outlining the chronology of the destinations and 1,200 grants awarded since 1985. Apart from concrete works created by artists who received grants in the past three years, there is a think tank located on the 1st floor that is dedicated to theoretical reflections on the project and makes room for a discussion of studio and “being referred back to oneself” in this situation.
