Artist Residency Programme Berlin/Amsterdam
elsewhere[: the others] 1-15.11.2021
Within the framework of the KHB residencies – together with the AG Minimales Reisen – research will be conducted on two aspects: on the one hand, we pursue the goal of reflecting on the term „minimal travel“ and making it visible. On the other hand, the focus will be on formats that test playing/experimenting with community. Each residency artist works in a personal genre (writing, drawing, photography, performance, object, action, etc.).
The special thing will be: the residency is semi-virtual, because one half of the group is somewhere else: in a place that you have also got to know or will get to know. You will meet [: the others] – the colleagues who are absent in the other city – only online in a structure prepared for this purpose. This exchange is part of the residency.
KHB and Stichting la Jetée invite 4 artists for this Berlin/Amsterdam exchange residency to work in the KHBstudios Berlin and at Stichting la Jetée Amsterdam from 1 to 15 November 2021. The visiting artists will work – partly together – on the theme of „minimal travel“, benefit from the exchange, hold open hours and exhibit in the studio windows. Residency: Monday to Monday, after one week the Amsterdam/Berlin exchange takes place. So:
Week I: K1 and K2 in A., K3 and K4 in B.

Our calls are aimed at new and professional artists of all ages. Networking is important to us, so knowledge of English is an advantage. The KHBstudios are an open, lively and tolerant space under construction – applicants should welcome the simplicity on site (minimal kitchen and bathroom equipment, no wifi), have a talent for improvisation, social skills, not be afraid of guests and be interested in linking up with the Berlin AG Minimales Reisen. Applicants undertake, in the event that they are selected, to transfer the contribution promptly and to take all necessary measures in due time to start the stay at the KHB at the agreed time and to be present at least 85% of the time (residency obligation). Applicants acknowledge that they will leave a contribution (copy) to the KHB Collection at the end of the residency. Hosting an Open Hour is part of the residency.

OPEN CALL until 15.10.2021
