Open Call for Artists RD 49 PILOTENKUECHE International Art Program
PILOTENKUECHE” is an international art program based in Germanys new art capital Leipzig. The indipendent project is run by artists with the aim to support and empower artists. The project invites within the “International Residency Program” selected artists from around the world to come and work in the 465m², fully remodeled space for a period of three months, with 24h studio access. Each accepted artist is offered a partial stipend in kind that represents our unpaid working hours. We maintain engagements with several partners, and by introducing our artists to these, make it possible for participants to cooperate with and exhibit in other venues. Our concept encourages experimental strategies aiming to provide our participants with the experience of accomplishing something collectively. In a group of around twelve international artists together with two local artists participating on our program activities, a stimulating dialogue becomes vital in fostering an independent position in one’s work, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over.
