FELLOWSHIP: Unbuilding Walls Travel Fellowship

Fellowship: Unbuilding Walls Travel Fellowship

As a continuation of the exhibition UNBUILDING WALLS at the 16th Architecture Biennale in Venice, the curators of the German Pavilion, the architects GRAFT and the politician Marianne Birthler, are initiating and awarding two UNBUILDING WALLS travel grants worth 3,000 euros each.
Carried by the idea of sensitizing the next generation to current walls, boundaries and their implications, the curators would like to deepen the topic as a field of research. Students with architectural and artistic projects about built, physical or strategic interventions aimed at overcoming barriers, can apply for the fellowship.
In addition to classical research and design projects, initiatives, media documentaries or other conceptual ideas dealing with the subject of UNBUILDING WALLS will be supported. The aim of the work may be to investigate the social and political implications of walls and borders or to develop designs for physical intervention. The result should meet an artistic and creative aspiration.
Applications for the fellowship can be submitted between 3 October and 31 December 2018 at media@graftlab.com
Further information, the award and the application form can be found here.
