From August 8 to 30, 2012, Natulis Art Temporary is offering 9 free studios for artists in Berlin’s Scharnhorststraße 32. Close to Hamburger Bahnhof and right behind Invalidenpark Natulis, the studio provides free temporary space to ambitious and energetic artists seeking a community of like-minded people in an experimental environment. For each artist, Natulis is offering raw studio space ranging from 44 to 55 m2 (old GDR-style garages). The successful applicant will be able to use the studio space free of charge, but „as is“. There are no fees for utilities and the garages can be returned in any state imaginable.
Ephemeral, time sensitive art at tremendous growth rates will be favored. The buildings will go afterwards, so be creative with the premises. The work will be presented at the end of August, when Natulis Temporary Art will host a weekend open both to art professionals as well as the public. In addition to invaluable exposure, the Natulis Group pledges a € 1000 prize for the best studio presentation during this weekend. The winner will be determined by a jury, which includes: Thomas Eller, James Guerin, Jan Kage, and Anna Jill Lüpertz. On August 30th, Yaneq invites the public to a big event with fun and food, bands and beers, DJs and performances.
In order to apply, please send your application (PDF with CV, portfolio of 7 artworks max. and a proposal for the space) to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: July 20, 2012
