studio das weisse haus is a residence and studio program for local and international artists, curators, theorists and critics. The program was founded in 2013 by Kunstverein das weisse haus. Our main purpose is to offer a platform where professionals from the art field can work together. We seek to support artistic practice and create a site where innovative projects can prosper. The main goal of this residency is to support an international artist with a two-month stay in Vienna, in order to carry out his/her ongoing research project.


The Notgalerie Seestadt - DREAM ESTATE project is an attempt to create a sculpture park in the Seestadt urban development district, an area northeast of Vienna where a satellite city has been under construction for about ten years. The Open Call focuses specifically to three locations on the area: eight platforms, the main stage, the container.

The eight platforms:

  • The foundation is made of a concrete block, measuring about 1 cubic meter.

  • The construction consists of an inverted wooden roof frame that carries the black painted platforms.

  • Each platform is about 2 by 3 meters in size.

  • It can be used for installations as well as for concersts, performances and interventions
