About the artists' exchange

The idea behind the artists' exchange is for each partner institution to invite three artists from the other institutions' country or region on a three-month visit. The scholarship holders from Upper Bavaria visiting Slovenj Gradec were determined by an invitation for applications for the European Art Scholarship of Upper Bavaria. The Slovenian artists who are guests at the Schafhof European House of Art, Upper Bavaria were selected by the Slovenian partner.

The goals of the artists' exchange are to link artists from Slovenia and Upper Bavaria, to encourage lively contact between the artists from the two regions and to promote contemporary art and its mediation by enabling direct contact between artists and the population at a European level.

Meetings with the artists working at the Schafhof can also be individually agreed upon throughout the entire period.

Participating Artists


Slovenian artists in Freising


Katja Felle

Katja Felle

Born in 1988, lives and works in Slovenj Gradec and Ljubljana

Katja Felle's pictures are derived from the observation and abstraction of the characteristics and undesirable developments of modern society and their influence upon her as a person. She portrays them through a critical filter as an intermingling of aesthetic phenomena and structures, as an interaction between objects.

Jure Markota

Jure Markota

Born in 1985, lives and works in Slovenj Gradec

In his installations Jure Markota uses the most diverse materials and everyday objects. His ironic gestures address the loss of autonomy of art and question the position of the artist. His works in public areas examine the boundary line between art and the environment in which we live.

Uroš Weinberger

Uroš Weinberger

Born in 1975, lives and works in Ljubljana

Uroš Weinberger's painting imitates the strategies of electronic media: topicality, dynamism, aesthetics. He breaks down the pictures into their component parts, separates the information from the original context, simulates significance and thus creates a seductive world of the fine arts which is simultaneously a trap.

Artists from Upper Bavaria in Slovenj Gradec


Daniel Door

Daniel Door

Born in 1984, lives and works in Neubiberg and Munich

Daniel Door approaches his environment via the microphone. Experimental sound recordings e.g. of airplane wrecks, sparkling mineral water, the resonance of the whiskey bottle and feedback loops from corrugated sheet metal form the basis of his objects and installations.

Heike Jobst

Heike Jobst

Born in 1981, lives and works in Munich

In her working process Heike Jobst investigates the limits of mediality and material, of subjective perception and collective symbols. In this process she uses drawings on paper as a material for sculptural installations, and video projections as a pictorial means of creating additional space.

Moritz Walser

Moritz Walser

Born in 1981, lives and works in Munich

Moritz Walser works with large-scale installations and with photos and drawings, with paradoxes and visual irritations playing the part of the narrators. He develops sensitive abstractions and associative metaphors based on impressions left by the natural world, architecture and environment that surround him.
