University of Arts London

The Stiftung Reinbeckhallen welcomes students from MA Performance Design and Practice, a course offered at the University of Arts London: Central Saint Martins, for the second time. During their residency, the students will develop new work and present it at the Reinbeckhallen.

This year’s group of students is comprised of 16 up-and-coming artists from different backgrounds and cultures who work in the areas of performance, design, and the visual arts. Using Faust, a Weimar film directed by F.W. Murnau in 1926, as a starting point, and drawing on their own experiences and interdisciplinary practices, these students will work together on a performance that explores the timeless German folktale as well as the ongoing resonance of Murnau’s unique vision. The residency and final performance are made possible by the support of the Reinbeckhallen and the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen.

Serkan Sarier

From the end of January until the end of March, the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen will welcome the first artist who successfully applied for the 2020 artist residency through its Open Call.

Serkan Sarier, a graduate of The Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp and Goldsmiths, University London, was one of three artists selected from a large pool of applicants from 14 countries for the 2020 artist residency at the Reinbeckhallen.

The son of a Turkish Gastarbeiter (guest worker), Sarier was born in Germany and spent the past 20 years living and studying abroad. With his return to Germany, he will create a complete body of work – paintings, sculptures, and installations – that will explore at once the theme of rejection and his own search for identity and places of acceptance at a young age.

At the end of his residency, Sarier will present the works created on site at the Reinbeckhallen.
