Location: Berlin, Germany
Mission: The non profit organization GlogauAIR was founded by the Spanish artist Chema Alvargonzález in 2006 with the intention to create a meeting point between artists from all disciplines to work in collaboration, expanding their practice in terms of materials, formats and style. The processes are shown every three months in an open studios exhibition where the public can see the works of the resident artists in a relaxed and festive event.
Parallel to the Residency Program and the open studios we organize activities and exchange projects in collaboration with other institutions such as Videoart, Sound Art or Performance Festivals, exhibitions or artist presentations, where we invite local public, art lovers and professionals.
Cost: 500 €/month – when sleeping in the studio. The artist should sleep in their own workplace. Bed and bed linen will be provided as well as showers and kitchen for general use. 450 €/month – not sleeping in the studio. (it is literally a studio you will sleep in with a futon and your work).
The price includes: studio, basic expenses (gas, electricity, maintenance), organizational work, open studios exhibition, taking part of the activities happening at the moment and a quarterly (three-month) catalog with all other resident artists.
Application Fee: Free
Number of Artists: Up to 10 artists at a time
Accommodations: Basic studio is provided, some come with a futon, most artists opt to rent a room for cheaper elsewhere.
The artist must take responsibility to pay individually for the costs of the studio prices and insurance, transport and travel expenses. Normally the artist will look for a grant in his/her country to finance all the costs, although GlogauAir will do everything possible to facilitate the search for financial Aid, i.e. sending a letter of invitation that endorses the decision of the artist. On the other hand, GlogauAir is constantly looking for sponsor entities to bring granted artists and pay for activities of the residents.
If the artist comes from non-European country, he/she will have to go through the process of obtaining a German Visa valid throughout the time of residence. We offer our collaboration by writing a letter of admission.
