"In seinen multimedialen Installationen untersucht Valter Ventura (geb. 1979 in Lissabon) kontinuierlich das Wesen der Fotografie und ihre sowohl historische als auch gegenwärtige Bedeutung. Seine nahezu forensische Methode – die über ein komplexes, an naturgeschichtliche Musemspräsentationen erinnerndes Display erfahrbar wird – lässt ihn wie einen Archäologen in die Tiefe graben, um darin Beobachtungen zur Wahrnehmung an sich freizulegen."
Wir gratulieren herzlich!

Artists-in-Residence programme of ERSTE Foundation, tranzit, Igor Zabel Association and Kontakt. Art Collection.
The Artist-in-Residence Programme at MuseumsQuartier in Vienna (MQ AiR) is part of ERSTE Foundation’s and tranzit’s long-termed endeavour to support contemporary art and to strengthen the situation of its creators, especially in the region of Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. From 2019 on, the MQ AiR programme will include two more institutions: Igor Zabel Association (IZA) and Kontakt. Art Collection.. Kontakt will collaborate with the Zagreb based WHW Akademija.
The residencies are designed for artists, curators and theoreticians from Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia and Croatia working in the field of contemporary art to do research in their respective area.

The studios are equipped with pleasant and functional facilities but do not provide artist’s workshops. During the stay various meeting possibilities are offered to the participants. Each residence grants a monthly stipend of EUR 1050,-.
