The Künstlerhäuser Worpswede e.V. promotes the artistic work of international artists through the granting of scholarships in various fields, projects by individual artists and groups of artists, and exchanges with universities and academies. These activities are partly self-initiated, partly conceived by the Künstlerhäuser. In 1971, Martin Kausche opened the complex with five studio flats on the edge of the Teufelsmoor, beginning almost 50 years of interdisciplinary and international artist promotion. Katharin Ritter, M.A. is the Artistic Director.
The new STIPENDIUM PLUS is a 12-month residential and working scholarship, combined with an extended budget, with which scholarship holders can additionally invite cooperation partners. Alongside short-term guests from different fields outside of the art world, such as environmental science or neurobiology, the artists develop new forms of cooperation. The STIPENDIUM PLUS is supported by Karin und Uwe Hollweg Stiftung.
