OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS

PILOTENKUECHE, Leipzig / Germany

July – September 2019

 

 

"PILOTENKUECHE" is an international art program based in Europe's boomtown Leipzig, Germany. The independent project is organized by artists with a transdisciplinary background between art, theory & diverse sciences with the aim to support and boost artistic experience.

 

The project invites within the “International Residency Program” selected artists from around the world to come and work in the 465m² communally used, fully remodeled space for a period of three months, with 24h studio access. Each accepted artist is offered a partial stipend. We maintain engagements with several partners, and by introducing our artists to these, make it possible for participants to cooperate with and exhibit in other venues. Our concept encourages experimental strategies and embraces a trans-disciplinary ethos, aiming to provide our participants with the experience of accomplishing something collectively. In a group of around twelve international artists working in the space and two local participants participating on our program activities, a stimulating dialogue becomes vital in fostering an independent position in one's work while binding the individuals temporarily within the group, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over.

Plays can be any length, and with any number of characters; and must be in, or translated into, English.

FAQs

What kind of performance work are you looking for?

This is a national call out and we are interested in hearing from artists who create theatre, dance or spoken word in their broadest sense and from artists who combine these disciplines. We would like to support the creation of a new piece of work, so it might be just at the idea stage or you might have done some very early stage research or development.

What do you mean by Black artist or Black led company?

We would like to hear from artists and companies who are of African or Caribbean descent or of the African / Caribbean diaspora or of dual heritage. Several of the partners are working on an audience development project to engage these communities in their local area as audiences and we are interested in the potential for engaging these audiences in your work, but your work does not have to be about your heritage or identity or specifically for a Black audience.

What kind of spaces are available for the residencies?

The Everyman studio space is approx 9m wide and between 3 and 6m deep depending on layout. It is a wooden plywood floor on concrete. The studio space at Hawkwood is approximately 9m x 5m and has a wooden floor.
