The Stiftung Reinbeckhallen’s Residency Program

Residency Program

The aim of the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen’s residency program is to help artists, particularly those working in the visual and performing arts, develop their work by offering them a living/working studio and the support of a professional team in the vibrant city of Berlin. In alignment with the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen’s central value of maintaining an openness with regards to its program, the Residency Program is developed individually in discussion between its team and each participating artist. The same applies to the final presentation of work, for which the Project Space of the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen can be used.

Spaces and Dates

Successful applicants will be offered an 80 sqm apartment that includes a work space. Each residency period lasts between 8 to 10 weeks and takes place during the following weeks:

• April 11th – June 5th
• July 18th – September 11th
• October 4th – November 27th

At the end of each residency period, artists will be given a space of approximately 75 sqm for the presentation of an exhibition, performance, or similar project, for up to 10 days.

What We Offer

• A free space to live and work in
• An exhibition space to accommodate the artist’s final presentation (to be included in the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen’s program)
• On-site organizational, curatorial, and communication support

The Stiftung Reinbeckhallen residency program is open to artists who reside outside of Germany and work in the fields of the visual and performing arts.
