Between Bridges Residency 2025
Deadline Jun 3, 2024
Between Bridges
International

Between Bridges is pleased to announce the open call for the next biannual residency for visual artists. The residency will take place from January to June 2025, consisting of a five month working phase and a one month exhibition or public presentation. The fifth recipient of the residency will follow artists Yalda Afsah, Didem Pekün, and Lucy Beech as well as the publishing collective Viscose.

The residency is suitable for professional individual visual artists, artist duos or small groups working collaboratively. One or more visual artists will be supported, though artists enrolled at a university at the time of application are not eligible to apply (excluding artists enrolled in PhD programs). The criteria for awarding the residency is primarily the quality of the application and work submitted.

The residency includes the use of the facilities at Keithstraße 15 in Berlin Schöneberg on the ground floor of a residential building, with Wittenbergplatz subway station located nearby. In addition to two generous work and exhibition spaces, the facilities with a total size of 100 square meters include a workshop/ storage, office, small kitchen and bathroom. We regret that the rooms are not yet wheelchair accessible or suitable for living. The residency includes a monthly stipend of 1.500 Euros. It also offers the opportunity for studio visits with art professionals from the network of Between Bridges. For the exhibition, a production budget will be granted. The presentation of the work or exhibition will open at the end of April during Gallery Weekend Berlin. The exhibition will be promoted via Between Bridges’ distribution channels and documented on our website.

Artpil periodically publishes submitted announcements of outside opportunities we do not administer. We recommend researching further prior to submitting, especially if entry fees are required.

    In 2011, Maria Sturm began to photograph the lives of young people from the Lumbee Tribe around Pembroke, Robeson County, North Carolina. Through the process of documenting their lives, Sturm began to question her own understanding of what it means to be Native American. Her new book You Don’t Look Native to Me combines photographs with interviews and texts to preconceptions and show Native identity not as fixed, but evolving and redefining itself with each generation.

  • Mara Palena: Oikeiôsis
    Publication
    Witty Books
    International

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis. The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)

    Salvation is a previously-unpublished artist book by Jimmy DeSana that he conceptualized shortly before his death in 1990. The publication contains 44 of the artist’s late photographic abstractions that quietly and poetically meditate on loss, death, and nothingness. Depicted within the works are images of relics, body parts, flowers, and fruits that DeSana altered using collage and darkroom manipulations to create pictures that are both intimate and other-worldly.

  • Georg Kussmann: FRG
    Publication
    MACK
    International

    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
