Akademie Schloss Solitude posted the list of 2013-2015 fellows today, so the fellowship and all the rest feels a bit more official now. You can check out all the fellows here.
I guess their press office (pictured at right) is busy preparing bios for all the incoming fellows. It will be interesting to see who will be in residency at the same time I will, both for individuals and what disciplines they practice. One of the big benefits of the residency will be interacting with the others; just sitting down to dinner and drinks with a Cuban artist, a Brazilian musician, a Polish filmmaker, a Romanian economist, a lumber saleman’s son from Nebraska, what have you. I’ll have to brush up on my conversational skills–an art in itself to make my series of grunts and grimaces into something that might resemble biting wit.
