OPEN CALL Artist and the city: Residency
⌚️2022-02-21 19:00:00 – 2022-03-07 19:00:00
Cultprojector (Ukraine) together with Dekabristen e.V. (Germany) is pleased to announce the launch of the international project “Artist and the City: Residency. Practical research residency for Ukrainian and German professional artists working in various media in the field of three-dimensional art.”
• About the project •
In the imminent post-industrial era, many cities lose their relevance and become akin to “exclusion zones”. The aging of cities and their reputational losses due to changes in economic development lead to the centralization of life in the countries – inadequate distribution of population and uneven development of the country’s infrastructure.
During the residency, artists and the international project team will be able to explore similarly textured industrial and post-industrial cities in Ukraine and Germany, analyze the challenges of these cities and community needs and offer solutions in the form of an art object in public space using innovative technologies and various cross-media practices.
The project is designed to involve artists in rethinking the industrial space of Halle (Germany) and Zaporizhzhia (Ukraine) through hybrid residencies and mutual cultural exchange. This project will also test the flexibility of municipal cultural policy – whether it is ready to allow public art technologies to “appropriate” public spaces and transform them.
• Who can participate •
Ukrainian and German professional artists working in various media in the field of three-dimensional art who already have experience working with public spaces in Ukraine or abroad.
Travel, participation and production costs are covered by the organizers.

• Deadline is March 14, 2022 •
What will the residency look like
Three artists from each country, who can also be representatives of a creative group, or artists who will combine their artistic visions in the course of the residency are to create an art object for the German city of Halle (artists from Ukraine) and an object for the Ukrainian city of Zaporozhye (artists from Germany). All concepts of art projects created during the residency will be presented at an event in Kyiv, and one concept from each country will be selected for realization by the project team and international experts.
When is the residency taking place
The residency will take place in a hybrid format. In April, the artists will go to Ukraine/Germany to study the urban context and explore the issues under the guidance of the curator of the residence, Kateryna Ray. In May-June, the online component of the residency will be carried out, when artists will receive weekly lectures on urban planning and new media and consultations from leading experts from Ukraine and Germany. This is also the time when they will be able to develop the art object concepts for further presentation in Kyiv.
Dates of in-person residencies:
19-24.04.2022 – Halle (for Ukrainian artists)
26.04-01.05.2022 – Zaporizhia (for German artists)
