[...] we're looking for volunteer photographers

ZK/U (Center for Art and Urbanistics) is looking for volunteers who are interested in taking photos of our diverse formats and events, such as Speisekino Moabit, Gütermarkt, OPENHAUS and others.

If you want to foster your skills in photography by taking pictures from various point of views, representing interactions and atmospheric moments, static or dynamic, and you’re interested in getting to know ZK/U from an inside perspective, we are looking forward to hearing from you.

We’re looking for photographers who have already some years of experience, own equipment as well as experience in post production.

Please send an email with your name, background, and availability (days & hours) to info(at)zku-berlin.org. Do not hesitate to get in contact with us if you have any questions or ideas.

Internship at the artist residency

The ZK/U opened its doors not a long time ago, this is the opportunity to get engaged in a wide range of activities right from the start. The interns will engage in all aspects of the day-to-day operations of an international not-for-profit organization and will gain experience while being introduced to a vast network of artists, scholars and practitioners. Due to ZK/U's small staff, interns play an important role in the administration of ZK/U’s overall program.

ZK/U internships potentially provide a foundation in a variety of skills, experience and contacts for a future career as a curator, artist, arts administrator, etc.
