ZK/U (Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanstik) has recently announced an Open Call for 2-8 months residencies in Berlin, accepting individual or group applications.
In the context of its research and residency program, ZK/U offers a “living & work” space for artists, scholars and practitioners (curators, activists, autodidacts, etc.) working in the fields of urban research, geography, anthropology, urbanism, architecture and the humanities.
The residency consists of furnished studio-apartments (half of which have private bathrooms), communal facilities, an open platform for public events, lectures, discussions, screenings, performances and presentations.
ZK/U organizes various events which allow residents to present their work to a selected audience. The residency also organizes monthly curator studio visits, one public group presentation per month, online and local promotion of the public events, and the opportunity for the residents to propose their own format.
Even though there is no application fee, the resident’s costs are between 500 and 800 Euro per month. The price covers all utility costs and space usage.
After being selected, ZK/U 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 and grants.
The selection criteria will be based upon the founding concept of ZK/U. There are no limitations concerning age or region of provenance of the applicant.
