Open Call | Scholarships for Artist’s Residence Project in Refugee Accommodation, Berlin

Application deadline: 16 September

RESIDENZPFLICHT (RESIDENCE REQUIREMENT) is an International Open Call for an artist-in-residence programme organised by the artists’ group msk7. The programme aims to use a diverse spectrum of artistic positions to temporarily open up the self-contained refugee shelters to approaches and developments in contemporary art.

The RESIDENZPFLICHT art project will award 10 project scholarships for one-month residences in the 10 newly constructed refugee accommodation in Berlin between 2019 and 2020. Ten visual artists are invited to live for one month on the site of one of Berlin’s Modular Refugee Accommodation Centres and create context-based artistic work there. Each scholarship is accompanied by a blog, an artist’s talk and a closing event on site.

Scholarship holders will be provided with a construction trailer converted into a live-in studio on the grounds/central square of a Berlin refugee accommodation centre. The scholarship is endowed with a fee component of 2000 Euro and a maximum of 1000 Euro to cover the cost of material and travel expenses. Applications from international applicants are welcome, and there are no age restrictions for artists wishing to participate. A mandatory residence requirement will apply.
