TURN2 // Announcing the selected residents
It is with great pleasure that the ZK/U Berlin, the Federal Cultural Foundation and Triangle Network announce the recipients of the TURN2 Curatorial Research Residencies in Berlin, Lagos, Johannesburg and Nairobi.
Finalists were selected by an expert jury through a call open to emerging curators in the contemporary visual arts and emerging curators with a cross-disciplinary approach, as well as to cultural practitioners with a curatorial interest based on the African continent and in Germany. The selected candidate will undertake a fully-funded residency at ZK/U Berlin, Nairobi Contemporary Art Institute (NCAI), G.A.S. Lagos or Bag Factory in Johannesburg. Residencies of the first round are scheduled to take place between September 2021 and December 2022. In September/October 2021, another open call was launched for the next round of residents. The dates for these residencies are yet to be determined.
