Open Call ZK/U

Dear Partners and Friends,

We would like to inform you that the Center for Art and Urbanistics (ZK/U) currently releases an open call with the following deadline: July 31st, 2016.

The programme is open to brave, curious, artists in their field, working on the edge of their practice. In the frame of this Open Call, ZK/U would like to explore the pulse of the city consisting of public services, goods and spaces, that seem underappreciated. The guidelines are accesible by the following link:Application Guidelines.

We would be thankful if you could send this information along to your partners and colleagues with matching profiles and practice, who might be interested in doing a residency at ZK/U.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

With warm regards,

The ZK/U Team

 

[…] IN RESIDENCY – ZK/U BERLIN OPEN CALL

 

In the context of its research and residency program, ZK/U offers a ‘living & work’ space for artists, scholars and practitioners working in the fields of urban research, geography, anthropology, urbanism, architecture and the humanities. The programme is open to brave, curious, artists in their field, working on the edge of their practice. ZK/U is focusing on the processual aspects of artistic and urban practice, which come from, and feed into, the particular contexts of the fellows’ manners, whether they be locally-defined situations or international discourses. In the frame of this Open Call, ZK/U wants to encourage thinking and acting that is going beyond ecological, economic and social crisis, foster questions about citizen participation in the urban and artistic field.
