Unlisted Projects @ MoHAUP @ MoHA

Residency for Danish Artists at UP, Roskilde, and Catch

Applications due by July 10, 2019

About the Residency

With support from Roskilde Festival, Catch, The Danish Ministry of Culture, and The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Unlisted Projects and The Museum of Human Achievement are pleased to offer an open call for a one-month residency in approx. Feb-March 2020 for artists from and residing in Denmark of any discipline. Residents are provided with a stipend, material support, shipping support, studio and living accommodations, and all UP & MoHA resources including but not limited to documentation, production and technical support. 

We are interested in the process of creating public work that can be both site-specific and at the same time shown in three different places and contexts (Austin, Roskilde and Helsingør). We are seeking work that can recognize a variety of cultural lenses and find strength from that variety. 


Artists will be provided with a working stipend, material stipend, travel costs, shipping costs, studio and living accommodations. The residency is funded by the Danish Ministry of Culture and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Furthermore, Catch and Roskilde Festival fund the work production with 80.000 DKK. The Artist Chosen for the residency will also have to apply for additional funding at the Danish Arts Foundation in August. 

Additional Support

~A residency stay with Unlisted Projects ~February - March 2020

~Workshop and co-working space at Catch throughout the fall-winter 2019-2020

~The produced work will be shown in local contexts and also be a part of festivals in Austin, Texas and Helsingør and Roskilde. 

Accommodations at Unlisted Projects
Resident artists are provided with a newly built 16' x 12' studio with two large barn doors which open into the common area and provide natural light. In additional artists are free to use all facilities, tools and supplies at hand. There is a small kitchen, internet, bathroom and shower. Although the trailer is climate controlled the studio is not.


Residency duration will last approximately one month.


The residency program offers opportunities to contribute to MoHA exhibitions and public programs. Artists In Residence are encouraged to submit proposals with public engagement and additional programming in mind. We can and will help facilitate any necessary production needs to make it an excellent experience.

UP Vibes

As a part of a community run center for artists, MoHA artists and members are asked to take part in the creation and maintenance of its facilities and programming.

Artists-In-Residence are asked to put in volunteer hours toward space renovation and a weekly chore.  We are frequently renovating our building – a process that would be impossible without our dedicated network of volunteers.  A constantly changing physical and social environment, MoHA is always a work-in-progress, and there are many opportunities to leave one’s mark.



The UP residency is tailored to Danish artists of varying media and practices. We welcome cultural producers of all stripes: social activists, academics, and anyone who is creative, adventurous and willing to come to Austin and allow experiences here to influence new bodies of work. We are especially keen on artists who have a socially collaborative and/or new media art practice.

We would like to work with an artist who has:

~Interest in engaging an audience and community around their practice and its environment

~A practice that involves social community, collectivity and activism

~An artistic approach to technology or a technological approach to art or art that uses a component of technology

~An experimental practice


Danish Artists-In-Residence are selected through our Open Call application process, due by July 10th. Studio visits or video interviews may be requested in July. The chosen artist will be required to also apply through the Danish Arts Foundations’ application process.


The Proposal can consist of any type of creative project that you want to pursue in Austin. A group or solo exhibition or performance is readily an option at UP at the end of the residency although not necessarily required.
