Between Bridges Residency in Berlin, Germany | Deadline 03 June 2024

For the 5th time, the humanitarian foundation Between Bridges offers a biannual residency from January to June 2025. The artist will work on a visual arts project whilst meeting other local cultural workers in studio visits.

A final month of exhibition following the five-month creation phase will wrap up the residency, let the artist demonstrate their work to the public and grow their outreach through promotion in the Between Bridges network. The exhibition begins at the Gallery Weekend Berlin in the end of April in Adalbertstraße and is generously supported with a production budget in addition to the monthly stipend of EUR 1,500. 

The fifth artist in residence will step into the footprints of their predecessors. During the last residency, filmmaker and choreographer Lucy Beech produced films arguing for the reuse of waste. Didem Pekün’s project evolved around political violence and community building, while the fashion criticism collective Viscose drew up an issue themed RETAIL during their time at Between Bridges. The first resident, Yalda Afsah, dedicated the time to creating films about domineering ritualised interactions between humans and animals. 

A professional visual artist, duo or small collective will live and work at Keithstraße 15, Berlin Schöneberg, a 100 m² studio with two work and exhibition spaces, a workshop, office, kitchen and bathroom. Importantly, artists currently enrolled in university are excluded from the application process. After applying with a CV, portfolio and project concept, one or more successful applicants get notified in July. The jury bases their decision largely on the artistic quality of the application and submitted exemplary works.
