To evaluate the proposals we also ask for short CVs of the person submitting the project (300 words maximum) as well as of the proposed participants in the project (600 words maximum).
Give us the most information you can, but since there is a word limit, try to be brief and concise in your descriptions and arguments. Note: do not send catalogues, DVDs, brochures or folders. These extra materials will not be considered in step 1.
Kunsthalle Exnergasse and the Advisory Panel will review the applications and pre-select a short list of up to 30 project proposals for step 2.
We strongly recommend that you view the Online Form in advance.
Once you have submitted the Online Form, you will not be able to make changes, or resubmit.
Late and incomplete application forms will not be considered.

Step 2
These pre-selected projects will be invited to submit a more developed proposal including additional material like catalogues, DVDs, videotapes and so on.
Kunsthalle Exnergasse and an Advisory Panel will then make the final selection of 5 to 7 projects.
The selected projects will be presented at Kunsthalle Exnergasse in 2011. All projects in Step 2 will be informed about the results via email.
