Post-Grad Life is a new information and discourse format developed to foster exchange between the Academy and graduates to showcase different challenges after graduation. The first edition “Going International” is about stories of artists and their progress while going abroad. The afternoon sessions will present projects around artist-in-residence programmes, networks and opportunities to get internationally recognised. Participants will have the chance do discuss with Alexandra Grausam about “AWAY- a project around residencies” and Stefanie Reisinger about “Phileas”, an independent organisation to support and co-produce projects within the field of contemporary art with a particular focus on artists abroad. The evening session will host a conversation between Christian Schwarzwald and Bianca Regl about their stories and personal experiences whilst going international and working abroad.
