Calculation of costs

Kassel Dokfest pays every exhibiting artist an artist fee and provides appropriate accommodation for the duration of stay in Kassel. Where possible, travel expenses will be partially subsidized. For this reason, please do not include an artist fee, or travel and accommodation expenses in the calculation of cost.

The costs for “standard” presentation technology (projectors, sound systems, monitors, headphones etc.) do not need to be listed. However, the listing of equipment needed should be as exact as possible.

Please calculate costs for everything that exceeds “standard” presentation technology:

  • Special equipment such as VR headsets and sensors, 3D glasses, etc.
  • Construction material (eg. for room construction, projection screens, carpets), props (such as curtains, furniture), transport costs, etc.
  • Exact costs will be calculated together with the team should a work be selected.
