AIR Mission Statement
Invitations are currently issued exclusively through cooperation with partner organisations in the respective countries.
The location in the midst of nature and the exceptional architecture create an atmosphere in which artists can concentrate on their own work, while they can also integrate into the rich contemporary art scene of Munich and Upper Bavaria.
Contemporary visual art, all genres. The program is addressed to freelance and professional artists.
The AIR at Schafhof operates on the base of artist exchange projects with partner institutions outside Germany in a European country. Applications for a residency at the Schafhof need to be submitted to the partner organisation in the framework of an exchange project.
There is no possibility to apply individually for a residency directly at Schafhof. But we are happy about any contact with a potential partner organisation in any European country.

The artist-in-residence program takes place in the framework of the European Art Fellowship of the District Council of Upper Bavaria.
During the stay of the guest artists in Freising presentations and open studio days provide the possibility to meet with and know more about the artists. There is always the option to arrange individual visits and meetings as well.
