KEX Residency


Grant for artist / research residency
Beginning in 2012, the Kunsthalle Exnergasse (KEX) awards grants for artist / research residencies, respectively of one to three months. From 2012 to 2019, residents were invited to work at the KEX Studio, a studio at WUK, in collaboration with the Workshop Sector (WSB), member of the WUK organisation.
The selection of the residents takes place in a constant cooperation with national and international institutions and groups from the broader field of innovative artistic practice and research.
