Open Call

The Stiftung Reinbeckhallen Announces its 2020 Residency Program

01.10. – 30.11.2019

The aim of the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen’s residency program is to help artists, particularly those working in the visual and performing arts, to develop their work by offering them a living/working studio and the support of a professional team. While the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen welcomes and reviews all applications, special consideration is given to those that focus on translocality and transculturalism.

The Spaces and Dates

Successful applicants will be offered a studio (22,5 sqm, ceiling height of 2,56–4 m) in a space (100 sqm) that is shared by other artists, architects, and designers. Each residency period lasts between 8 and 10 weeks and takes place during the following weeks:

January 27th – March 29th, 2020
June 29th – August 23rd, 2020
September 1st – October 25th, 2020

At the end of each residency period, artists will be given a space for the presentation of an exhibition, performance, or similar project, for up to 15 days.

What We Offer During the Residency

  • A free space to live and work in
  • A large room to accommodate the artist’s final presentation (to be included in the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen’s program)
  • Onsite organizational, curatorial, and communication support
