Culturia, in Berlin, has just announced an open call for the residency period between 5th November 2012 – 31st January 2013. The program is committed to researching and documenting the artistic process.

culturia offers a unique residency for artists and researchers working in emergent contemporary art practices. culturia residents are mid career artists, PhD candidates, academics whose work investigates the artistic process.

culturia’s mentoring exchange program gives artists the opportunity to explore contemporary art theory and ideas of aesthetics with established artists and curators.

culturia curators conduct sensitive, inquisitive film interviews with artists focussing on the artistic process in all its facets. These interviews serve to preserve on record interesting and important aspects of the creative process which may not be apparent in the final art work, create a dialogue with artists about their practice and build a film archive which pushes this discourse forward in an academic capacity.

culturia non material collection preserve the material that usually does not fit within the object. The non material collection does not include artworks but is made by the artists reflection on art – (audio, text, video).
