The aim of the programme is to encourage curators and researchers working on the collection and research focus of the Belvedere/21er Haus – Austrian art from the Middle Ages to the present. Networking with colleagues at the Belvedere/21er Haus and in the Vienna art and culture scene is explicitly desired.

Project proposals should

  • refer to art and art history themes from the Middle Ages to the present day
  • have a specific reference to the collection areas in the Belvedere/21er Haus.

The CIR will have access to the museum infrastructure, Research Center and Belvedere/21er Haus collections and will be able to count on the assistance of the staff members responsible for the relevant collections.

Outcome 

The aim of the programme is to promote curators and researchers working on the collection and research focus of the Belvedere/21er Haus – Austrian art from the Middle Ages to the present. The results of the research could be communicated in the form of a talk, Internet presentation, contribution to the collection, or booklet for the public.
