Between Bridges Residency

Between Bridges is pleased to announce the open call for the next biannual residency for visual artists. The residency will take place from January to June 2025, consisting of a five month working phase and a one month exhibition or public presentation. The fifth recipient of the residency will follow artists Yalda Afsah, Didem Pekün, and Lucy Beech as well as the publishing collective Viscose.

Eligibility

The residency is suitable for professional individual visual artists, artist duos or small groups working collaboratively. One or more visual artists will be supported, though artists enrolled at a university at the time of application are not eligible to apply (excluding artists enrolled in PhD programs). The criteria for awarding the residency is primarily the quality of the application and work submitted.

Scope of residency

The residency includes the use of the facilities at Keithstraße 15 in Berlin Schöneberg on the ground floor of a residential building, with Wittenbergplatz subway station located nearby. In addition to two generous work and exhibition spaces, the facilities with a total size of 100 square meters include a workshop/ storage, office, small kitchen and bathroom. We regret that the rooms are not yet wheelchair accessible or suitable for living. The residency includes a monthly stipend of 1.500 Euros. It also offers the opportunity for studio visits with art professionals from the network of Between Bridges. For the exhibition, a production budget will be granted. The presentation of the work or exhibition will open at the end of April during Gallery Weekend Berlin. The exhibition will be promoted via Between Bridges’ distribution channels and documented on our website.

 Application

The application consists of a CV with a portfolio (pdf file, max. 10 MB, max. 10 A4 pages including CV, if applicable with links to moving image and/or sound works), as well as a short proposal of the project and the exhibition concept (max. half a page). The maximum page number is the same for group applications. The deadline for applications is Monday 3 June (23:59 pm CET). The documents can be submitted in German or English to residency@ betweenbridges.net. We only accept digital applications. A jury will review the applications. Please note we can only contact successful applicants. The awarded resident will be notified by July 2024.
