Rolling Applications Open Now

 

SOMOS AIR

SomoS’ Artist-in-Residence Program offers cultivated, supportive, and stimulating surroundings to international visiting artists wishing to realize an artistic project in Berlin. The minimum 3 month residency is focused on production, experience, critical discourse, networking, and local participation. The SomoS residency program is designed for artists working in disciplines such as drawing, collage, photography, media-art, performance, and film/video. Staying at SomoS, participants will become a part of a thriving artistic community with an active exhibition and event program and will easily and swiftly become well-acquainted with the creative, networked city that is Berlin.

FACILITIES

Residents will be provided with accommodation in furnished studios suitable for various disciplines and purposes. These studios are furnished with a working table, chairs, workbench, bed, and a professional LED lighting system. Shared areas of SomoS such as the exhibition spaces, a shared kitchen, office facilities, and a big social living space and salon (suitable for screenings or meetings) with a collection of art books are available to use.

ACTIVITIES

During their time at SomoS, residents may undertake their own activities like workshops, talks etc., which can be hosted in the on-site exhibition space or workshop rooms. AIR participants have free access to all general workshops, artist-talks, screenings, exhibitions and other regular events taking place at SomoS art house. Residents will meet regularly with SomoS curators to discuss and review their progress towards completing their project.

OBJECTIVES

At the end of the residency, SomoS organizes a presentation of residents' recent work in a suitable public format. These can include lectures, discussions, screenings, readings, or exhibitions. During this process artists receive support on the various aspects of the presentation (including PR, artist's talks, interviews, exhibition texts, invitations, and public reception). This presentation will take place in SomoS exhibition hall and will be part of the official exhibition program.

AVAILABILITY

Up to six live/work studios are available for artists-in-residence at SomoS Art House. Residents stay for three months each on a rolling monthly basis so that they can benefit from overlapping with other artists and to have the chance for more individual feedback.
