"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 & science with the aim to support artists.


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 in kind wich represents our unpaid working hours. We maintain engagements with several partners, and by introducing our artists to these, make it possible for participants to cooperate with 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 and two local artists working in the space and participate on our program activities, a stimulating dialogue becomes vital, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over.

Participants receive all documentation necessary to apply for funding and the visa process. If required, the project can assist with additional individual reference letters.We’re looking for artists to participate on our program in 2020.
