Matthias Einhoff | 31 ene 2012, 18:49

ZKU (Zentrum fuer Kunst und Urbanistik / Center for Art and Urbanistics) is happy to announce its first OPEN CALL for residencies in Berlin.

The call is directed at artists, scholars and practitioners (curators, activists, autodidacts etc.) interested in cross-disciplinary theory and practice dealing with the city. 

Deadline for residency applications
March 31, 2012

Dates and duration of the residencies 
Starting from June 2012 on with residencies from 2 to 12 months. We will contact applicants within four weeks after the deadline.

Applicant Requirements
Artists should be working professionally in their fields, with a broad range of projects and exhibition experience. 

Scholars are expected to have attained a level equivalent to a master’s degree, and preferably to have some years of professional experience. 

Practitioners should have a broad range of professional experience in their fields.

Artists, scholars and practitioners can apply individually or as a group. We especially encourage group applications consisting of artists working with scholars or practitioners from other disciplines.


ZKU is partly funding the 'Open Call'. Unfortunately, full grants are currently not available. 

ZKU will support the invited residential fellow in their efforts to secure funding through external grants by providing the fellow with an official invitation and identifying relevant funding networks. The official invitation is valid for at least a year, allowing the fellow to find matching funds.

Depending on the size of the studio-apartement and the length of your stay, the resident’s expenses will be between 470 and 880 euro a month, covering the costs of your studio-apartment and allowing you to use ZKU's spatial facilities (open space, communal kitchen, conference space, basement and workshop spaces, roofed terrace). You will also be able to present your work and will be part of our regular publication.

You should calculate an additional minimum of 400 euros per month for yourself covering food, transportation and leisure in Berlin. 

How to apply
To apply directly, please fill out the application form found on the website and include the required supporting material. The application proposal should refer to one of the current themes of the ZKU residency program or to an independent research and practice proposal. (‘Ad Hoc’ theme). 

KUNSTrePUBLIK is also offering a three month residency at FUTURA, Prague. More info here
