Opportunity: Air at Westwerk

DEADLINE 15 Aug 2020

 AIR at Westwerk artists centre in Hamburg.

When: 4 three-month residencies between January and December 2021

Information: The residency is a residential and work grant that requires the artist to live and work at Westwerk and facilitates both work on an artistic project and networking with the Hamburg cultural scene. Westwerk is centrally located in inner-city Hamburg, in a relatively large complex of buildings on Fleetinsel that houses further studios, galleries, an art bookshop and a small theatre.

Professional international artists resident outside Germany, from the fields of the visual arts, photography and film, with an interest in the Hamburg cultural scene and the desire to network culturally in Hamburg are invited to apply for the residencies.

The organisers provide: Rent-free provision of the 68 m² residency flat (1 large room with separate simply furnished living/working area, kitchen and shared bathroom) with WiFi. The Ministry for Culture and Media will pay the rent for the flat during the residencies and an additional expense allowance of €800 per month per artist in residence plus travel expenses for one return journey. Grants are intended for one person.

Additionally, the artists will each receive a one-off subsidy of €500 per residency towards the costs of running and organising a final presentation
