Artists-in-Residency Program - Call for Applications
MoKS (Mooste KülalisStuudio) AIR programme operates since 2002. Artists are welcome from around the world. The studio is available to use free of charge from early March through November. Residency periods can be arranged from 1 to 6 months. People working in all disciplines of art, e.g. visual and media arts, poetry, music, criticism, research etc are encouraged to apply.
Artists are expected to find their own means for travel and per diem for living/insurance costs for the residency. MoKS can help with some materials and special tools on previous mutual agreement. Assistance with making contacts to Estonian galleries, curators and art schools is also possible. MoKS appreciates artworks donated by the resident artists for its collection.
The main studio space (41m2) is furnished and heated by a wood stove (electric heaters can be added if necessary). There is a bedroom (17m2), kitchen and bathroom supplied with mattresses, bed linen, blankets, towels, cooking utensils and washing machine. The artist in residence stays in the bedroom and has access to the kitchen, studio space, media lab, and bathroom. Occasional events such as workshops or the annual PostsovkhoZ summer event may require the resident artist to temporarily share the facilities (artists will be notified of the conditions previous to arrival). All the rooms have internet access (wireless and wired). Medialab facilities include: Sony TCR- DRV25e mini dv camera, P4 computer, digital video and sound editing possibilities, VCR, video projector.
MoKS is spacious, comfortable and quiet which allows for a concentrated working atmosphere although climate conditions in Estonia vary throughout the year. During the colder months the resident artist should be prepared to handle the conditions (bring warm clothes). As guests are expected to be independent, basic tasks such as building fires to heat the stoves, cooking and shopping will become part of the daily routine.
In the village of Mooste (approx. 400 people) there is a chemist (pharmacy), small food shops, and a first aid clinic. It is possible to use the village sauna and library. There are daily bus connections to Tartu (40 km to the north, the second biggest town in Estonia) and Tallinn where other shops and services can be found.
