NEU WORKSHOP Funded Residency

Starting in September we are offering a funded (1.200€) 6 week residency program in our studio to a total of 3 young / emerging / aspiring artists / creatives.  

As a self funded / financed initiative we want to provide access to often scarce and expensive resources and  collectively form a new independent offering as an alternative to institutional residencies or scholarships. 

By providing free working space, as well as access to all material and immaterial resources the workshop has to offer, this initiative is aimed at supporting candidates from all backgrounds and disciplines, hoping to enable them to research, experiment, learn and share.

As all our endeavors the residency project is a process not a result. We will be continuously re-evaluating how our support structures can provide the most value.


Candidates will receive a working budget of 800,00€ + 400,00€ accommodation support (if applicable) at the start of the residency. The residency program will end in a presentation of the produced works in the form of a public event and / or exhibition (including production and technical support, as well as professional documentation in image and / or video). A separate budget (up to 400,00€ – amount to be specified depending on requirements) for the presentation will be provided. We are completely self funded and do not receive any government funds.

NEU WORKSHOP is a community and non-profit multi use project space for research and experimentation. By sharing material and immaterial resources, we aim to create an environment that encourages new voices and ideas, amplifies innovative and investigative approaches, and stimulates inter- and multidisciplinary collaboration. We are constantly re-evaluating how these support structures can provide a framework for ongoing collective experimentation, research, sharing and learning to connect practical, theoretical, cultural and social ambitions that resonate within and outside the art context. The physical space of the workshop allows for a variety of usage scenarios. The office is equipped with multiple working stations for photography & video editing, photography (negative) scanning, as well as large format photography printing. The studio offers equipment for photography and video, exhibitions and installations, music production, screen printing, sewing and more. Furthermore the space provides the conditions for exhibitions, installations, performances, mediation- and education projects, photo and video productions, workshops, presentations or temporary stores.

How is NEU WORKSHOP positioned in the context of art? Are you a gallery?

While our space offers the conditions for exhibitions, installations and performances we do not consider NEU WORKSHOP to be a gallery but more of a process oriented space where works can also be displayed.
