Take part at the QAF!

Are you an artist from the queer community or do you deal with queer topics in your art as an ally and would like to present your work to a broad audience?

Then get in touch with us so that the Pride Headquarters is bursting with creativity on the first weekend in July!

What are the admission criteria?

We are looking forward to receive applications from artists from the queer community as well as from committed allies who are engaged with queer themes.

The works should have a queer reference. This is represented either by the artist’s identification with the queer community or by a deliberate engagement with queer topics.

The Queer Art Festival is aimed at local as well as international artists and serves both the artistic exchange and the presentation of the works to an interested audience.

Any art form can be accommodated, within the limits of what is possible, be it in the form of paintings, photography, literature, music, dance, installations and anything else that cannot be clearly assigned to these categories. There is the possibility to use a stage, to present your works (paintings, photographs, graphics, etc.) on walls or as an installation in the large exhibition hall, as well as to redesign one of a total of two rooms. Especially for the latter, you should briefly describe your idea or concept in your application.

As space is unfortunately limited, a jury will vote on the applications, depending on the available space in each category. To be considered, you can apply until 15 April 2022 using the form below. Please remember to attach a selection of your work (link to a portfolio, website or video) to your application so that the jury can get an idea.

The jury will let you know by 1 May whether your applications have been accepted and how much exhibition space you will have. If you would like to exhibit a specific work or installation that requires special attention (space, room height, etc.), please indicate this in your application.

Application:

Describe yourself and your work. If you have concrete ideas about what you would like to exhibit or present at QAF, please describe your project in a few words.
Link to your portfolio (URL to your website or an Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube, Facebook account where your works can be found)
