OPEN CALL: Open Studio Days 2023

Open Studio Days, 11 & 12 NOV 2023, 1–6 p.m.

We invite artists working in Vienna to upload their submissions for the participation in the Open Studio Days as part of VIENNA ART WEEK by 25th April 2023. From all submissions, participating artists will be selected to open their studios and welcome visitors on the two days of the Open Studio Days – Saturday, 11th November and Sunday, 12th November 2023 between 1pm and 6pm.

Priority will be given to those who did not participate in the Open Studio Days last year.

This year’s expert jury – consisting of Robert Punkenhofer (Artistic Director VIENNA ART WEEK), Ramesch Daha (Artist and President Secession), Klaus Speidel (Philosopher, Art Critic and Curator), Verena Kaspar-Eisert (Chief Curator MuseumsQuartier Wien), Tina Sauerlaender (Co-Founder, Director & Head Curator, peer to space) and Julia Hartmann (Associate Curator VIENNA ART WEEK) – will select artists from all the submissions to participate in the Open Studio Days.

Submissions are possible from now until 25 April 2023. All artists will be informed by the end of May whether they have been selected to participate in the Open Studio Days.



  • Submitting artists must have a studio/working space in Vienna at the time of the Open Studio Days in November 2023.
  • The artists selected by the jury to participate in the Open Studio Days will keep their studios open to the public on Saturday, 11th November and Sunday, 12th November from 1pm to 6pm.
  • The VIENNA ART WEEK will be responsible for promoting the Open Studio Days participants (website, press relations, printed matter and social media) and will provide an accompanying mediation program (guided tours and shuttle tours).


Additional program

  • NEW: Pass on your Passion – For the first time, this year we would like to invite and encourage artists to offer their own events and activities for visitors as part of the Open Studio Days. The format is entirely up to you: from workshop to performance, anything is possible! However, participation should remain free of charge and should not hold up the parallel, further course of the Open Studio Days. We will fix the dates together with you AFTER the decision about participation has been taken. The submission of an event is optional.
  • Open Studio Days District ToursGuided walking tours in the various districts will take visitors to different studios of the Open Studio Days. The VIENNA ART WEEK tries to include as many of the participating artists’ studios as possible in one of the District Tours. However, we ask for your understanding if it should not be possible for individual studios.
  • Barrier-free Shuttle Tours – Shuttle tours lead visitors through selected wheelchair-accessible studios in the various districts. We therefore ask for correct information on accessibility in the submission.
  • Social Media FormatsTo introduce the participating artists on our social media channels in the months leading up to the Open Studio Days and to get to know them better, we will again offer various formats from which they can choose.



  • The details provided in the application will be used for communication, please take time to ensure that all information is correct and complete. If moving, please submit with the studio address that will exist in November 2023.
