That’s what the Petrohradská kolektiv AiR program offers in the heart of a multi-genre cultural center in Prague. The goal of the program is creating an open platform for international artistic dialogue, interconnection of different cultures, and support for emerging artists working with diverse media.

Residency is an opportunity for independent professional development, artistic exchange, networking, and experiments. 

The resulting artistic outcomes of the residencies will be showcased in Jedna Dva Tři Gallery at the Petrohradská kolektiv complex. The main theme of the exhibition program for 2022 is Transformation, therefore we are asking ask the applicants to take this into account when applying with their projects.

Who are we looking for?

Residencies are intended mainly for artists with interests in creative sharing and participation in the field of Prague contemporary art scene.

Prospective participants should introduce us concrete projects that would be realized within their stay in Prague. The final result of the residency will be traditionally showcased in our own Jedna Dva Tři Gallery. Anyway, the form of the output can be adapted according to each project’s nature.

What do we offer?

  • Accommodation and a studio in the Petrohradská kolektiv complex
  • Covering the travel and material costs (up to 200€)
  • Technical support and consultation
  • Exhibition in Jedna Dva Tři Gallery (or an alternative)

The original idea behind Petrohradská kolektiv was to make a community space for creativity and art practice, where there’s a place for both efficient working and pleasant relaxing, where you can focus on your own projects and then take a break without the necessity of leaving the building. 

Within the AiR we provide a technical support, promotion, and a curatorial assistance. Travel and material costs are covered up to a maximum of 200€.

We know that a convenient working environment is fundamental, therefore within the residency we provide a shared studio with a workshop with basic equipment with an area of 60 square meters, a photo/video studio, and a recording studio. Each project requires different technical equipment, therefore the technology needed is consulted with each artist individually.

Each participant gets a private room in a 3-room apartment with a common area, a kitchen, and a bathroom. The apartment is situated on the ground floor of the Petrohradská kolektiv building.

Petrohradská kolektiv organizes many cultural events within its complex. All of the residing artists get to attend these events for free.

Within the AiR program, which works in parallel with other events, there’s an opportunity of collaboration with artists and mentors from different cultural backgrounds. Thanks to that, our residents can actively participate in various programs of Petrohradská kolektiv.

Open call • Food Studio (an open kitchen for art, theory and politics)

Share

Theme:

City:

Eligibility:

 

In the framework of this residency program, we are looking for projects where food grows to become one the media of contemporary art. We are particularly interested in concepts where the kitchen is conceived as common ground for a better understanding, where foodstuffs count as political, historical, and cultural beings. We would like to provide a space to projects examining the social dimension of food and which would consider working with Prague’s art scene, our international community of residents, and – last but not least – MeetFactory employees. 

MeetFactory is a non-profit international centre for contemporary art. Our mission is to foster a dialogue between individual genres and make current developments on the art scene accessible to the broadest public. We support original projects in the fields of visual art, theatre, and music, as well as interdisciplinary and experimental platforms. We aim to create a space in which art is alive and artists are present, enhancing a direct exchange between international artists and visitors, as well as between different fields and generations.

From a seasonal trend in exhibition-making to yet another sub-medium in contemporary art, food is becoming an increasingly important element of today’s art practice. Over the course of the preceding decade, one can follow the appropriation of foodstuffs by a broad spectrum of artists developing community-based and socially engaged projects. It can be seen as another path to recognising identity politics or dealing with post-colonial topics. Since our residency programme is mainly oriented towards building relationships between the Prague art scene (art audiences and residents), we would like to use a food-oriented art practice as a platform for connection and mutual understanding. Let’s have a bite!

 

What we provide:

- accommodation in a shared apartment
- studio space
- a fee of 700 euros (gross) per month
- a production budget of 200 euros
- further production budget related to the project

Make sure you are able to spend at least 80% of your residency time here in Prague.

Interested applicants must send following information in English:

- CV
- a short description of the project you’d like to work on – up to 1000 characters
- your portfolio
- information about when you’d prefer to come

Possible dates:

1st of March – 31st of May 2022 
1st of June – 31st of August 2022
