The Institute for Art in Public Space Styria is holding a one-stage, open call competition. Artists of all disciplines are invited to explore the topic OPEN FIELDS – Art and Agriculture. They will spend two to four weeks on a farm and develop, as a result of their insights gained from this stay, a temporary work of art.




In a first step, farmers who are interested in contemporary art are invited to open their farms to international artists from various disciplines such as music, literature, performance, film, digital media, visual arts, etc. These artists are then invited to spend up to one month on selected farms to develop temporary artworks. This is intended to give space and time for a serious and critical examination of the topics of art and agriculture in mutual respect.




The call for farmers is open until February 28, 2022, noon. The open call for artists runs until April 1, 2022, noon. The realization of the works is planned for 2022 or 2023, the period can be extended if necessary.
