Since April 1998, the City of Mönchengladbach, with support from the Josef and Hilde Wilberz Foundation, has awarded a six-month international studio fellowship to visual artists. Fellows are provided with a guest studio and an apartment, as well as a monthly stipend for living expenses. The fellowship period concludes with a presentation of the resulting work at a public exhibition venue in Mönchengladbach and an exhibition catalogue can be published.

At the end of the fellowship, participating artists are expected to show output from their residency in the form of an exhibition, performance, film screening, reading, or some other public presentation. Although the artwork can have some connection to the City of Mönchengladbach, it is not required. The Fellow commits to donating one work of their choice to the collection of the Josef and Hilde Wilberz Foundation, and one to the collection of the City of Mönchengladbach. Fellowships are awarded on the condition that the artist lives and works in the host studio during the fellowship period (residency requirement).

Applications for the fellowship can only be made on the recommendation of German and international museum directors, university professors and curators. Professional artists of any age and descent are welcome.
Any contemporary art form is permitted, from painting to video, photography, and performance art.

Fellows are accompanied and supported by the Cultural Office of the City of Mönchengladbach, which convenes the jury and organizes the application process. It also coordinates Fellows’ arrival and stay in Mönchengladbach.
