"PILOTENKUECHE" is an international art program based in Germanys new art capital, Leipzig. The independent project is organized by artists with a transdisciplinary background between art and theory, with aim to support and empower artists.

10-12 artists from around the world spend three months in our fully renovated industrial space that was once a barbwire factory. While here, each artist has 24/7 access to their 36m² studio within the 465m² communal space.

Our concept strives to create space for experimental collaboration and discourse between participants, as well as with the greater Leipzig community. 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. Two local artists join the International artists for our multifaceted program activities and exhibitions. These activities, and time spent working in and out of the studio, foster stimulating dialogue. This leads to a long-term network that exists long after the program is over.

The Studio space consists of:

  • one furnished up to 36m² large space per artist in our 465m² large communal loft hall including wifi and all side costs (water, heating, energy, kitchen, toilet etc.)
  • approximately twelve artists per month working in the space
  • furnished shared used tea kitchen

The Program activities are:

  • two group exhibitions in interesting venues.
  • Professional documentation of the exhibitions
  •  studio visits,
  • contact to the local art szene,
  • organized museum tours,
  • scheduled art critiques,

Each accepted artist is offered a partial stipend in kind. In addition, the artists receive all documentation necessary to apply for funding and the visa processes. If required, the project assists with additional individual reference letters.


One of our accepted artists is not able to come, take the chance to participate.

We will benefit the last minute decision of the selected artist financially by reducing the costs.
