Akademie Schloss Solitude is an international Artist-in-Residence Program and has supported approximately 1,700 young artists from more than 120 countries since opening its doors in 1990. It creates a close-knit, global and transdisciplinary network of Solitude alumni that expands from year to year. The name Akademie Schloss Solitude unites the belief in artistic, scientific exchange with the notion of a refuge, a credo which underlays the construction of the Schloss Solitude from the very beginning. Residencies at Akademie Schloss Solitude enable fellows of all disciplines to devote themselves to their research projects under favorable material and intellectual conditions.
An example of late-Baroque style, poised on a hill overlooking the cultural and industrial city of Stuttgart, the Akademie Schloss Solitude has developed into an important global network for the international art scene. In harmony with the castle's location and history, Solitude is a retreat and »free zone« for art and life. But it also has a public face as an exhibition venue, innovative laboratory and arena for discourse. The Akademie's fellows and guests use it as an artistic incubator, a projection screen; a place to make lasting connections or as an opportunity to realize a project without having to conform to conventions. The institution represents an open concept of art and intentionally allows its guests to influence and shape it.
