Open Call 2010:
Kunst-Stoffe – Centre for re-useable Materials, Berlin / Germany, offers residencies to artists of all disciplines. Openings are from May 1 – September 30.

Kunst-Stoffe is a cultural organisation committed to exploring issues of value and waste. We pursue this mission in three areas of activity: Kunst-Stoffe maintains an ongoing and changing exhibition of discarded materials and makes them available for creative practitioners. We carry out and present projects investigating aesthetics and strategies of reuse. We offer workshops and facilities to provide a practice ground for creative exploration of the ideas of sufficiency and subsistence.

The residency includes free housing for the period of stay and offers work space at Kunst- Stoffe. The artist will have a small studio at exclusive disposal and additional outdoor workspace, as well as partial access to equipped workshops for wood, metal and crafts work. Further, participants will receive a voucher for limited amounts of free materials from the storage facilities. The acquisition of additional materials will be supported if necessary.

Living and travelling expenses have to be covered by the participant. Kunst-Stoffe will provide support in the acquisition of travel grants if desired. Towards the end of the stay, each artist has the opportunity to present work process and results in a gallery show, along with a public program. During the stay, participants will be supported in having open studio presentations and holding workshops, if desired. Interested artists may send an electronic application, consisting of the following:

  • A letter of intend describing applicants interest in working in the context of Kunst-Stoffe
  • Documentation of no more than two previous projects
  • A project proposal, outlining the activities planned in Berlin
  • A proposed time schedule (preferred time slot and length of stay)
