The Käte Hamburger Centre “global dis:connect” (gd:c) and the research group METROMOD are delighted to announce an open call for an artist residency in 2022. The aim is to develop a project commemorating artists exiled from Munich and exploring its relevance today.
The Centre is looking for creative workers, who express themselves primarily with visual/performative media (artists, filmmakers, designers, etc.) with an interest in migration and urbanism, and who are proficient in English. The residency will take place at the interdisciplinary Käte Hamburger research centre in central Munich.
Starting from the responses of the focus group in METROMOD’s initial inquiry, the residency would like to open a plural, bottom-up exchange on exile, cities and memory with this residency. The artist in residence can freely engage with this recent research.
The centre seeks to initiate a work of art in public space that draws on the knowledge already collected and that commemorates artists exiled from Munich.
Käte Hamburger centre offers a six months residency (starting October 2022 at the earliest and ending no later than May 2023), including a workspace in central Munich (Maria-Theresia-Str. 21), one economy-class return flight and a stipend to cover accommodation and daily expenses yet to be determined after decision. There will be opportunities to engage with artists, curators, academics and to participate in external events. METROMOD and the global dis:connect will provide the artist in residence with up-to-date research on exiles from Munich and support you to develop networks and ideas. The artist selected will have the opportunity to publicly present the artwork or outcomes of the residency. Please note that the artist may need to obtain further third-party funding to cover the production costs of the final artwork.
Deadline: Feb. 28, 2022
