[…] IN RESIDENCE - ZK/U BERLIN OPEN CALL

Open Call for Residency - Deadline March 31st, 2017

ZK/U currently welcomes new applications from artists, scholars and practitioners for its residency programme. Fellows meet and work on individual or collaborative projects and ideas in the production space of ZK/U’s residency.

In the frame of this Open Call, ZK/U is particularly interested in initiatives that create spaces for encounter and exchange between citizens from diverse backgrounds; formats that question and reclaim urban infrastructure and public space for the commons; practices that make global complexities graspable in a local context; and projects that imagine forms of local belonging within post-migration societies.

The programme is open to a range of contemporary artistic positions that are conceptual, interventionist and contextual. Work at ZK/U is informed by theoretical and practice-based critiques within the fields of urban research, geography, anthropology, urbanism, architecture and the humanities. ZK/U focuses on the processes that come from, and feed into the particular contexts of the fellows’ practices, whether they be locally-defined situations or international discourses. Residents are encouraged to involve themselves with ZK/U’s programme and to propose their own formats.
