Stichting Kaus Australis

Stichting Kaus Australis

Description 

Foundation Kaus Australis is an organisation which was originally set up and still organised by artists. Its general goal is activating the development, exercise and sparking of interest in visual arts in an international context. Above all Kaus Australis strives to create an exchangeprocess through gueststudios and exhibitionspace. Local as well as artists and curators from abroad, who wish to work for a certain period in Rotterdam can make use of these facilities.

Stichting Kaus Australis was founded in 1985. For several years accommodation was found in temporarily available buildings which, one after another, were turned into suitable studio and presentation spaces. During this period Kaus Australis initiated a number of exhibitions and invited guest artists from different countries to share working and presentation space. Starting from 1993, Stichting Kaus Australis had the opportunity to design and realise appropriate and long term accommodation, reflecting a more functional artistic space.

This newly built residence stands on it’s own ground, fronting a large private court-yard. The building project came into existence with the support of the Municipality of Rotterdam, Rotterdam art institutes and national funding organizations. A number of companies offered technical advice and sponsored a part of the material supplies.

The participant is invited to make a presentation of his/ her project during their residency period.
