open call for artists





"PILOTENKUECHE" is an international art program based in Europe's boomtown Leipzig, Germany. The indipendent project is artist run 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. 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.

The program activities consists of

  • studio visits and open studio if the group is interested
  • contact to the local art szene,
  • organized museum tours,
  • scheduled art critiques,
  • two group exhibitions in interesting venues.

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.)
  • desk, little stroage space
  • depends on the work of the artists, but two walls to work on
  • large windows
  • approximately twelve artists per month working in the space
  • furnished shared tea kitchen with fridge, microwave, hotplate
  • Common area

Participating artists are expected to participate with the program objectives, to contribute to a collective enterprise, and be open to work with others. We organize two exhibitions in interesting venues, which are non obligatory, but they increase the artists visibility, would be sad not to take advantage of it.

Artists from all artistic disciplines (installation, videoart, sculpture, electronic music, painting, drawing, performance, photography, net art etc.) are invited to send us an application.

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 the 45th round from October – December 2020
