FAQs on the Visual art fund project

No, unfortunately, we cannot offer this option. However, you are welcome to contact both the institutes abroad and the Visual Arts Division at the Goethe-Institut’s headquarters for assistance in finding a participating institution.

Your project has to be presented publicly in at least one location in a professional environment outside Germany. However, the involvement of several locations increases your application’s chances, which in this case can be supported by a correspondingly higher funding amount.

Your application is to be submitted and processed via the Goethe-Institut’s application portal. Once we have received your application, it will be reviewed by the Visual Arts Division at the Goethe-Institut’s headquarters.

A jury will discuss all applications received that meet our criteria and make a decision regarding funding.
