The Residency Program

Already in 2018, on the occasion of the exhibition Otro amanecer en el trópico – Contemporary Cuban Artistic Practices, artists were hosted in the Reinbeckhallen. Luis Gómez, Henry Eric Hernández and Celia González (Celia – Yunior) used residency spaces in the Reinbeckhallen to develop site-specific works for the exhibition. The artist Yamilys Brito Jorge, director of the Taller Experimental de Gráfica de la Habana, also resided in one of the studios while, as an accompanying program to the same exhibition, she coordinated the printing workshop “Artists’ Books and Poster Art as a Bridge and Testimony to Cultural Heritage”, in cooperation with the Humboldt University of Berlin.

The pilot project of the current format for the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen’s residency program took place in October 2019. With the support of the curator Tereza de Arruda, the Chinese artist Wang Cheng Yun took part in a short-term residency at Reinbeckhallen for one month. At the end of the period, he presented the resulting works to the public in the form of an open studio.

With its focus on the visual and performing arts, the residency program is intended to be a platform for contemporary themes and practices. By welcoming artists with different biographical and artistic backgrounds, as well as collaborations with educational institutions – such as Central Saint Martins‘ of the University of the Arts London – the Residency Program of the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen enables current dialogue and exchange opportunities between the Foundation and the artists.
