Residency | Kaiserdamm Berlin | Winter 2021/22

Inside the Berlin ring next to the underground station Kaiserdamm is the first artist-in-residence project of our interim cultural use concept. We are converting apartments in need of renovation and unused basement rooms into temporary studios from December 1st, 2021 until March 31st, 2022.


Next to the award of studio space, the residency program includes bi-weekly mentored studio visits, artist presentations and talks. To cover the program costs a flat rate of 150€ per month is required. The spaces are situated in two large shared attic studios. Each attic studio has around 250m2 and offers space for 6 artists. The studios are clean and dry, have daylight and are in a ready-to-work state. The building has an elevator and all studios have access to sanitary facilities. Terms can range between 1 and 6 months while all forms of art are welcomed. Artists have 24h access to the premises.


Highlight of this residency is the enclosed around 1.400m2 large air-raid shelter with 5 to 6 meter high ceilings which can be used individually for happenings and work. Furthermore, at the end of the project there will be a group exhibition in this shelter presenting the works created during the residency.
