Service for members
The Tiroler Künstler*schaft sees itself as a lobby and platform for artists in and from the Tyrol. It also offers its members an information service about invitations to tender and exhibitions, a publication archive, and advice on stays abroad/residencies and freelance work as an artist. With their membership card, artists receive reduced/free admission to various art institutions in the Tyrol and the surrounding area.
Together with a number of partners, the association regularly offers information events on topics of particular interest to artists, such as social security matters relating to precarious employment conditions in the arts and cultural sector.
The newsletter for members is published every second month and contains information on current exhibitions and events run by the Tiroler Künstler*schaft, announcements of its members’ exhibitions and events, and a selection of current calls for tenders at home and abroad.
The curated members’ exhibition takes place every other year.
INTERNATIONAL IDENTITY CARD FOR ARTISTS
The International Artist’s Identity Card, issued by the International Association of Art (IAA), allows visual artists worldwide free or reduced admission to numerous museums and exhibition venues. Nationally active interest groups endeavour to get the card recognised in their respective countries. In Austria, this is the IG BILDENDE KUNST. When ordered collectively via the Tiroler Künstler*schaft, the card costs EUR 20,- for members of the Tiroler Künstler*schaft and is valid for two years.

The Portefeuille Vivant, our members portfolio, is shown on its own standing desk next to the mobile bookshelf in the Kunstpavillon. It is possible to include works / photos up to A3 format in the folder continuously, as they are exchanged every six months. Originals are sold free of commission. Details can be obtained in the Kunstpavillon.
The Kunstpavillon has a mobile shelf so that current publications by the members can be presented to the public. We also collect members’ catalogues and artists’ books in our archive.
The Tiroler Künstler*schaft regularly organises information events and workshops with experts for its members, examining relevant and up-to-date topics for visual artists such as social security and tax law.
In 2012 the Tiroler Künstler*schaft developed a new format representing exchange, space for experimentation, openness, collaborative thinking and action. The Salon aspect of the programme is aimed primarily at members of the association, expanding the existing exhibition and fellowship programme with a new level that is spontaneous, flexible, discursive and diverse. Project presentations, lectures, discussions and smaller exhibitions take place within this framework. The locations change: The Salon opens its doors in the Kunstpavillon, Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen and the Neue Galerie as well as– under the title Salon d’Artiste–in the artists’ studios.
Every two years, the Salon Expanded offers new members of the Tiroler Künstler*schaft an opportunity to introduce their own work but also artistic and non-artistic personal interests to colleagues and the general public.
This is a format to present different practices and directions of new contemporary art production in and from the Tyrol.
