RESIDENCIES

RESIDENCY PROGRAMME FOR ARTIST COLLECTIVES AND GROUPS

Commencing in the spring of 2024, Spreepark Art Space will offer a residency programme for international artist groups. Interdisciplinary collectives and project-based artist groups not yet living and working in Berlin are invited to apply for a three-month residency at the Eierhäuschen, a newly renovated historic venue. An inspiring space for artistic reflection and action in which sustainable hospitality and a sense of community are key.

The Eierhäuschen is situated in the midst of a preserved landscape, directly adjacent to the former amusement park Spreepark. With the extensive redesign of the Spreepark into a new public park, visitors are invited to reflect and experiment.

Spreepark Art Space provides artists with the space to explore the link between art and the surrounding landscape. The unique backdrop of the former Spreepark amusement park takes centre stage, providing artists with the opportunity to engage with this place of change and transformation. In addition to a wide range of interactive events and educational opportunities, we enable residents to experience and explore the connection between people and nature, art and the environment, landscape and architecture.

Residents are selected once a year via an open call by an international curatorial board.

For the current year, the curatorial board has nominated three ensembles to open the residency programme in spring, summer and autumn.

 

The application deadline for the residencies in 2025 will be announced here shortly.
