ZK/U Berlin - Residencies for Scholars, Artists and Practitioners

A new, innovative venue offering artistic and research residencies of 2–12 months duration for art production at the interface of urban research will open its doors in summer 2012 in the district of Moabit in Berlin-Mitte, on the edges of Berlin‘s largest inland port, Westhafen.

Located in a former railway depot surrounded by a freshly landscaped park, the ZK/U - Center for Art and Urbanistics - is the linchpin of a concept developed by Berlin-based artists‘ collective KUNSTrePUBLIK.

Analogous to the nineteenth-century transport of goods by rail, this unique new venue is set to become a lively hub for the transport of ideas and ideals in the postindustrial era.

Thematic Focuses

In order to coordinate the applicants’ research and artistic projects, ZK/U will announce mid and longterm thematic focuses, to which the applications should refer. Additionally, ZK/U welcomes individual, 'ad hoc' topics that critically reflect on urban issues and practices.

Biannual, midterm topics deal with issues that are thoroughly investigated and will have the potential to manifest into projects, publications and public formats. The period of two years allows in-depth research and sustainable projects that will be processed by 2-3 generations of participants.

Long-term topics deal with issues that are fundamental to the ZK/U's mission of being a platform of exchange between artists, scholars and practitioners.

In addition to studio work, the main focus of the ZK/U residency program is the cross-disciplinary exchange between artists, scholars and practitioners, as well as the outcomes of their individual and collaborative work that may include projects, symposia and exhibitions according to topic themes. We expect that these interdisciplinary exchanges at the international and local levels will foster both short and long-term ties.
