art, science & business

With a focus on art, science & business, Akademie Schloss Solitude promotes the transdisciplinary dialogue between these fields in a unique way. Since 2002, the program has offered a space for encounters between people from a wide variety of backgrounds and enables critical reflection. Behind art, science & business is the conviction that these practical areas, despite their differences, should be understood as complementary fields of knowledge, which together form the basis for new thinking and action. With this focus, the Akademie is committed to opposing the institutional limitations of scientific and artistic work and to an open exchange of knowledge.

Fellowship SCIENTIFIC field of practice 

In order to promote this dialog, young scholars have the opportunity to spend three to twelve months at Akademie Schloss Solitude. Within the framework of the call for applications (issued every other year) and in addition to fellowships designed specifically for the artistic and digital fields of practice, residential fellowships will be awarded in the SCIENTIFIC field, which includes the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and economics. Young scientists and managers with their own work projects can apply for a scholarship in this field of practice. Project proposals may address any topic

Activities and events

Together with its fellowship holders, the Akademie develops experimental event formats in which it presents its transdisciplinary work to a diverse public and allows it to participate in an exchange transcending disciplinary boundaries. Through the context of art, which, as a seismograph, detects and critically accompanies social and technological developments at an early stage, the formats support future-oriented thinking in every form. This leads to enrichment through new individual and collective ways of working.
