For our Artist in Residence Programme 2025, we are looking for artists who explore the theme of generations in their work, and who challenge and rethink social beliefs.

The Villa Sonnenberg Foundation's Open Call «InterGeneration» is addressed to professional artists of all disciplines with a project proposal that has the potential to question existing concepts about generations, to create new approaches and to appeal to people of different age groups and inspire them to participate.

Studio residencies at Villa Sonnenberg usually last three months:
