Residency

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

Our formats are established ZK/U Projects that have turned into re-occuring cultural practices, now taking place on site regularly.
