Passage Artist-in-Residence 2024

- Topics Awards, Landscape
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.
For the 2024 edition, the Kemberg Culture and Art Association and Polygona Art Association are looking for photography & film based applications from international artists into the residency programme. Passage AiR programme facilitates temporary working residencies for artists who approach the Dübener Heide in their work on site – a region that is characterised by extensive changes. The artists can use the stay for research or work in a results-oriented way.
The programme aims to look at the region of the Dübener Heide in the context of its history, landscape and culture through artistic approaches by means of photography and film and to thematise it regionally and transregionally. There are two residency places available for each year, with one residency awarded to a female artist who is also a mother. The duration of one stay is 4 weeks. As the programme promotes exchange between children/young people and established artists, participation in the residency is tied to the implementation of a 2-day workshop for young people.
The funding for the selected artists comprises costs for accommodation, travel and transportation costs costs up to €650, and a one-time grant of €1000. For the female artist-parent, the travel costs and temporary childcare are up to €600.
Applications must be submitted in English by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, containing a CV, work samples and the residency proposal.
