Kunst-Stoffe Berlin / Germany, offers a residency to artists of all disciplines. Openings are from 1st of May to 30th of September 2009.
Kunst-Stoffe is a cultural organisation committed to exploring issues of value and waste. We pursue this mission in three areas of activity: Kunst-Stoffe maintains an ongoing and changing exhibition of unwanted materials and makes them available for creative practitioners. Furthermore we carry out and present projects investigating aesthetics and strategies of reuse. Along with that, we offer workshops and facilities to provide a practice ground for creative exploration of the ideas of sufficiency and subsistence.
The residency includes free housing for the period of stay and offers work space at Kunst-Stoffe. The artist will have a small studio at exclusive disposal and additional indoor and outdoor workspace, as well as limited access to a shop for wood, metal and crafts work. The participant will be asked to contribute a flat fee of 50€ per month towards running costs for the work facilities. Living and travelling expenses have to be covered by the participant. Kunst-Stoffe will provide support in the acquisition of travel grants if desired. At the end of the stay the artist is invited to collaborate on organising a public event (exhibition / open studio / performance) in order to share some of the process of working in Berlin with a wider audience.
Interested artists may send an electronic application, consisting of the following:
A letter of intend describing the applicant's interest in working in the context of Kunst-Stoffe
Documentation of no more than two previous projects
A project proposal, outlining the activities planned in Berlin and a proposed time schedule.
