Künstlerhaus Lauenburg was founded in 1986 and is an international fellowship society of the Federal State of Schleswig-Holstein. It is a society for fine art, literature, and composition and offers emerging talents from all over the world the possibility to create new projects in an undisturbed environment and to present them to an interested public.
Artists, authors and composers without any restrictions of age, origin or residence can apply.
The Künstlerhaus Lauenburg is characterized by its personalized care and the close network between the fellows, as well as with the cultural scene of the metropolitan region of Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein.
Extent of Funding:
Every fellow receives a monthly grant for the duration of their stay. The residency fellowship includes also free use of an apartment and studio.
The Künstlerhaus Lauenburg receives financial support from the Federal State of Schleswig-Holstein, the Duchy of Lauenburg district and the recently founded society 'Künstlerhaus Lauenburg/Elbe e.V'.
Expectations for the Artists:
From every fellow we expect at least one solo presentation (exhibition, lecture or concert) during his/her residency at the Künstlerhaus. Furthermore we expect an artist talk, a joint first presentation and a joint finissage.
Besides that, we expect a presentable artistic work for the collection of the Stadtgalerie Lauenburg (gallery space associated to the Künstlerhaus) and a report (one A4 sheet) for the Federal State Schleswig-Holstein about the period of residence at the Künstlerhaus.
From the fellows we expect that by far the greater part of the fellowship period will be spent in Lauenburg and that the fellows take responsibility for the administration of the gallery on the weekends (open from 3 – 5 pm.).
