wildcard studio residencies at BHROX
With open qu|art|erly, the BHROX bauhaus reuse offers a wildcard studio residency for unsolicited applications from artists*, groups or collectives of all genres in the glass pavilion on Ernst-Reuter-Platz.
The residencies are part of Art on ERP and a continuation of the pandemic-related program series «THE ONLY ARTIST» (TOA). The TOA format was launched in spring 2020 in order to continue to enable art production within urban space during the lockdown, both in isolation and at the same time in front of the public.
With the transparent, multifunctional building, the BHROX has proven to be a relatively corona-resistant cultural venue – as a studio, workshop, exhibition space and stage that opens onto the square.
As part of the BHROX focus “Cultural Practices in Urban Space”, the studio residencies aim to promote Berlin’s art landscape and its integration into urban developments. This follows the idea that art production in public space contributes to the realization of cultural participation and in front of the public, as a dissemination format, involves the audience in the process of art(space)production.
For the low-threshold format, both individual artists and groups / collectives can apply with a project draft. One condition is that the project will be developed at BHROX and presented on site and/or online (live stream) during the residency. A focus on the main topics discussed at BHROX, being sustainable development, heritage and future of Modernism, trans-European dialogue and/or emancipation, will be appreciated. Applicants send a meaningful concept (pdf) via email to BHROX. Applications from people of all nationalities, backgrounds and identities are highly welcome.
The residencies are made possible depending to spatial and temporal availability; usually for one to two weeks per quarter. Applications are selected by the program curation at BHROX.
