Details about all in faq document

Guest artists work on their own projects and – optional – together with the AG Minimales Reisen in the KHBstudios, Berlin Wedding. The focus is on formats that test playing/experimenting with community – preferably also in hybrid space. Each residency artist works in a personal genre (writing, drawing, photography, performance, object, action, etc.). Two ’stationary‘ guest artists* live and work in their residential studio in the KHBstudios. Two ‚ambulant‘ guest artists (living in Berlin) use the desk workstations of the shared studio of the KHBstudios, partly together with Berlin members of the AG Minimales Reisen, which reflects and makes visible the term „minimal travel“.

The guest artists – sometimes together – deal with their own focus and, where appropriate, with the theme of „minimal travel“, they benefit from exchange, hold public open hours and exhibit in the studio windows.

Timeframe: 2 weeks Monday – Monday
7 – 21 February 2022
7 – 21 March 2022
Extension week(s) are possible. Please email for enquiries.

We prefer guests who arrive without a plane. If you are international: we prefer travellers, who integrate their residency in berlin into a broader stay in northern central europe in order to be able to hold on to the term „minimal travel“. please write some sentences about your travelplans in your motivation.

Offer ’stationary‘:
– 14 days in Berlin in „your“ individual studios
– preferably non-Berliners
– Artist Talks, meetings
– mandatory: 1 Open Hour of each participating Artists
– joint use of studio showcase exhibition space
– optional: 2 writing excursions „parallel protocol“ according to minimalesreisen.de/pp

Artists
Our calls for proposals are aimed at new and professional artists of all ages. Networking is important to us, so knowledge of English is an advantage. The KHBstudios are an open, lively and tolerant space under construction – applicants should welcome the simplicity on site (minimal kitchen and bathroom equipment, no wifi), have a talent for improvisation, social skills, not be afraid of guests and be interested in linking up with the Berlin AG Minimales Reisen.
The applicants commit themselves, in case they are selected, to transfer the contribution promptly and to take all necessary measures in due time to start the stay at the KHB at the agreed time. Applicants acknowledge that they will leave a contribution (copy) to the KHB Collection at the end of the stay. Hosting an Open Hour is part of the residency.
