The aim of the residency is to provide a period of rest, recreation and reflection for artists and practitioners in mid-career. It is a condition of the residency that NO work is produced during the eight week period of the programme.
The residency provides free accommodation in a classic Berlin apartment in an Altbau, early 20th century building. It is a private space in an urban environment. It is located in Kreuzberg in West Berlin, overlooking Victoria Park. Kreuzberg is known for its concentration of artists, galleries and performance spaces; it is not yet over gentrified. It is possible for the successful applicant to be accompanied by a partner and up to two children, if the children are able to share one bedroom.
Living costs and travel are NOT included in the award and applicants should ensure that they’re able to support themselves adequately during the period of the residency
