It all started with a small residence program in 2008, which das weisse haus put together at the first location in Westbahnstraße. Ever since that establishing an own residence- and studio project has become a big wish and it took about five years to turn an idea into a project. Offering a space where international and local artists and curators can work and live together became the main purpose of the new program “studios das weisse haus”. Now, after weeks and months of preparation studios das weisse haus gained its final shape in spring of 2013 when 4 international artists were invited to participate in our artist in residence program and 8 local artists were invited to work in studios provided by our program. Coming all the way from China, Ethiopia, Italy and the USA we warmly welcome the first residents Helen Zeru Araya, Yida He, Federico Maddalozzo and Hope Tucker as well as our local artists Merve Akyel, Johanna Binder, Casanova Sorolla, Ana de Almeida, Ebru Kurbak, Thea Möller, Jakub Vrba und Reinhold Zisser. We´d like to celebrate with you the arrival of these artists and the long-awaited start of studios das weisse haus and invite to the
