The scholarship program In the Field transcends borders! A big thank you to all 117 artists, activists and cultural workers that participated in this year's open call! 15 selected emerging artivists from Austria, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary come to Vienna for 10 days to exchange ideas about their work at the intersection of art and activism as part of the Free Republic of Vienna program. In encounters with international artists and activists as well as the local scene, In The Field opens a space for supra-regional transfer of knowledge and tests strategies of artistic and political collaboration.
