2023 ‘Passage’ AiR programme

Call for applications. Photographers, Filmmakers.

For the 2023 ‘Passage’ AiR programme, the Kultur- und Kunstverein Kemberg e.V. and Polygona Kunstverein (Kemberg Culture and Art Association; Polygona Art Association) are looking forward to receiving photography & film based applications from both national and international artists into the residency programme. There are two residency places available for June 2023; with one residency awarded to a female artist who is also a mother – further referred to in this guidelines as female artist-parent.

Under the theme ‘Status Landscape’, the residencies are intended to enable an examination of the current environmental condition of the landscape of the Dübener Heide, a Natural Park in the East of Germany. The following questions can serve as suggestions: What are the expectations towards a landscape? Which ways of perceiving a landscape arise during a temporary stay on site? What is the significance of a landscape as a resource for local recreation, economy and climate? We encourage applicants to consider exploring new themes related to the region of the Dübener Heide through a temporary residency. We also encourage artists to consider using familiar or new working methods in a site-specific way.

We are entering the third round of the ‘Passage’ residencies in 2023 and opening the new year directly with the call for applications. For the 2023 ‘Passage’ Artist-in-Residence programme we are looking forward to receiving photography & film based applications. There are two residencies available for June 2023, with one residency awarded to a female artist who is also a mother. There are some adjustments this year, e.g. the female artist with a child gets more financial support. We will also be accommodating the residency artists in the Saxon part of the Dübener Heide.
