It offers professional artists from all fields of art the opportunity to free themselves from their everyday routines for the duration of their residency. Saari Residence’s beautiful, historic surroundings and rural milieu offer an excellent setting for artists to immerse themselves in their creative work.

Call for Submissions: Zine-Anthology on Religion, Culture, and the State in South/west Asia

Şerābi is a forthcoming print zine-anthology dedicated to the complexities of religious, cultural, and national identity in South/west Asian communities & diaspora. We are particularly interested in work on liminal and/or syncretic regions, histories, and identities that transgress the boundary lines of states, religions, and religious states. We envision South/west Asia as beginning with the Anatolian Peninsula in the West, stretching across the Arabian peninsula and southern Central Asia, and ending with South Asia in the East. Artists and writers in diaspora are also encouraged to submit. We hope that by gathering our interconnected yet distinct experiences, we can foster a critical and justice-oriented understanding of heritage, spirituality, and place. 


Jurors: Amy Cheng, Lois Bender

Exhibition Dates: June 1 – June 28, 2023

Submissions Deadline: Tuesday, March 7, 2023

OPEN CALL for Iranian Artists based in Berlin: Zan Zendegi Azadi

OPEN CALL for Iranian Artists based in Berlin: Zan Zendegi Azadi

Woman, Life, Freedom.
We are honoured to invite Iranian artists based in Berlin for an exhibition to showcase the artworks that communicate the pain and hope of the current Revolution in Iran. While the brave Iranians are fighting the dictator regime on the streets in Iran, those living abroad and especially artists have taken the responsibility to spread those voices and bring awareness to the gender and religion apartheid and the Iranian struggle for freedom. 

We strongly encourage female artists and those from marginalized groups to apply to emphasize on the anti-discriminatory aspect of this revolution.
