SUPPORT BY THE CITY OF WEIMAR:

In keeping with its "guidelines for art in the public realm," the City of Weimar pursues the following aims in its role as an initiator of the Studio Program: To combine financial support for artists with the presentation of contemporary art in the urban realm, to serve as a forum for artists and a catalyst for encounter between them, and to gain international recognition for the resulting activities. By these means, international cultural exchange is to be promoted and prejudices eliminated. The support provided includes the provision of a combination artist's studio / apartment in the Municipal Studio Building. Newly restored, the Atelierhaus is one of the oldest buildings of its kind in Germany. It contains eleven studios which are rented to different artists for limited periods of time.

The International Studio Program of the ACC Galerie and the City of Weimar is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the State of Thuringia.
