International Open Call For Residencies
KUNSTrePUBLIK is announcing its first open call for residencies at the ZKU (Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik / Center for Art and Urbanistics) in Berlin. The call is directed at artists, scholars and practitioners (curators, activists, autodidacts etc.) interested in cross-disciplinary theory and practice dealing with the city.
Artists should be working professionally in their fields, with a broad range of projects and exhibition experience. Scholars are expected to have attained a level equivalent to a master's degree, and preferably to have some years of professional experience. Practitioners should have a broad range of professional experience in their fields. Artists, scholars and practitioners can apply individually or as a group. The organisers especially encourage group applications consisting of artists working with scholars or practitioners from other disciplines.
ZKU is partly funding the open call. ZKU will support the invited residential fellow in their efforts to secure funding through external grants by providing the fellow with an official invitation and identifying relevant funding networks. The official invitation is valid for at least a year, allowing the fellow to find matching funds. To apply directly, please fill out the application form found on the website and include the required supporting material. The application proposal should refer to one of the current themes of the ZKU residency programme or to an independent research and practice proposal ('Ad Hoc' theme).
KUNSTrePUBLIK is also offering a three month residency at FUTURA, Prague.
The deadline for residency applications is 31 March 2012, the dates and duration of the residencies range from June 2012 onwards, with residencies lasting from 2 to 12 months. Application form and guidelines are available at www.zku-berlin.org/apply
