artist residency
Schloss Balmoral

The Artist Residency Schloss Balmoral supports visual artists from all over the world and of all ages in the form of annually awarded fellowships. Since 2013, the fellowships have been linked to a specific artistic genre or theme, which the artists (among them an artist at risk) explore while in residence at Schloss Balmoral in Bad Ems. In addition, the programme offers two annual fellowships for curators and one for educators as well as the “Neustart” (New Start) fellowships awarded to graduates of the Academy of Fine Arts Mainz.

The in-house library at the Artist Residency Schloss Balmoral has been expanding constantly since 1996. With almost 9,000 titles – consisting of monographs, catalogues, magazines, films and videos – and unique ambience, the library invites you to dive in and immerse yourself in some very rare publications.



The work of the Artist Residency Schloss Balmoral (ASRB) is made possible by various committees, which as important supporters and initiators help to shape the profile of the Institution.
