City of Chur awards scholarship for studio residency

The city of Chur awards the scholarship for the studio stay in Cairo for the period from August 2, 2022 to January 30, 2023 to the artist Joachim Dierauer.

The Cities Conference on Culture (SKK), to which the city of Chur also belongs, has a studio house in Cairo (Egypt) where three cultural workers from different Swiss cities can live and work simultaneously for three months. The visual artist Joachim Dierauer was selected for the advertised studio residency. Dierauer was born in Chur in 1971 and completed the preliminary course at the School of Applied Arts in St. Gallen from 1987 to 1989. From 1991 to 1997 he studied fine arts at the Hochschule der Künste in Braunschweig (Germany). In 1998 Dierauer completed a master class with J.M. Armleder. Since 2002, the artist has been running a studio for ceramics and painting in Chur and has been a member of the Haldenstein Castle Lithography and Etching Workshop since 2003. From 2005 to 2011 he created stage designs for InSitu Chur and was himself on stage as an actor. The city of Chur pays Joachim Dierauer together with the SKK a monthly contribution of Fr. 1'500.-- towards living expenses.
