Location: Berlin, Germany
Mission: Takt Kunstprojektraum is an autonomous initiative started by artists in 2003. It runs without any external funding. Since 2009 the residency has become the central element of the project.
10 rooms are set up as an Artist Residency program, designed to host active artists visiting Berlin. The work rooms are the core elements of this effort.
The main goal of the residency program is to provide artists visiting Berlin quick access to an environment that will foster their creative energies. Participating artists are invited and expected to explore their creative paths. These residencies are offered as an opportunity, but it is up to the artist to make full use of it. We do our best to assist and support, but each artist is responsible for their own activities.
