In 2010 the Lenikus Collection brought two complementary projects into being. In cooperation with the Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Applied Arts in Vienna 3 of each and in total 6 young artists who just graduated are awarded a studio-scholarship every year. In addition to the national talents each year about 10 already internationally reputed artists are invited to live and work for about 3 months at the Bauernmarkt 9. This is where these different artists in various stages of their careers encounter each other, be it in the passage, in the studios or through our discursive accompanying program. The proximity of all the studios – they are located at Bauernmarkt 9 – allows an uncomplicated and spontaneous exchange.
