Eligibility:

As part of the programme TURN2 - Artistic Co-Creation between Germany and African Countries, the Federal Cultural Foundation launched the TURN2 Residencies - Curatorial Research Residencies in Berlin, Lagos, Nairobi and Johannesburg in April 2021. 

In September 2021, the open call for emerging curators based in the African continent coming to ZK/U Berlin goes into the second round. For curators based in Germany, there will be no second open call.

This call invites emerging curators in the contemporary visual arts or with a cross-disciplinary approach and cultural practitioners with a curatorial interest based in the African continent, to undertake a funded 3-month residency at ZK/U Berlin. The residencies will take place between April 2022 and December 2022 (exact dates to be finalised in consultation between the host and each selected candidate). 

In the first round of the open call in April 2021, an expert jury selected six emerging curators from the African continent to conduct research at ZK/U Berlin between September 2021 and March 2022. Simultaneously, nine emerging curators from Germany were selected to conduct curatorial research in Lagos, Nairobi and Johannesburg.

The TURN2 Residencies promote the initiation of curatorial partnerships and transcontinental networks between emerging curators and established art and cultural institutions as well as the exchange between the respective art scenes. The TURN2 Residencies are a joint project of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation), the ZK/U Berlin and the Triangle Network, and are carried out in collaboration with the Nairobi Contemporary Art Institute (NCAI), the G.A.S. Foundation in Lagos and the Bag Factory in Johannesburg.
