In 2019, the Goethe-Institut, in cooperation with LIA Leipzig International Art Programme, offer artists from Nordic countries, in specific Færøer Islands, Iceland, Greenland, North-Finland, North-Norway and North-Sweden, residencies at the Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei for a 3-months-period.


We offer an 80m² furnished studio to live and work in and a one-time payment of 500 € towards travel costs and material. Furthermore, the scholarship provides a full payment for the production of one print theme at the etching studio Atelier für Radierung Maria und Vlado Ondrej. This project aims at a Northern European print edition being produced to be part of a traveling exhibition. Please note, the team of the print studio also works with artists who do not work in the field of print making. They help and teach everything necessary.
