open call for Artists Round 50 Jan - March 2022





"PILOTENKUECHE" is an international art program based in Germanys new art capital Leipzig. The indipendent project is run by artists with the aim to support and empower artists.


"PILOTENKUECHE" is an international art program based in Leipzig, Germany. The independent project is run by artists with the aim to support and empower artists.


The project invites within the “International Residency Program” selected artists from around the world to come and work in the 465m², fully remodeled space for three months. Each accepted artist is offered a partial stipend in kind that represents our unpaid working hours. We maintain engagements with several partners what may lead to further cooperations. Our concept encourages experimental strategies, thinking out of the box and try something new. In a group of around twelve international artists together with two local artists participating in our program activities, a stimulating dialogue becomes vital in fostering an independent position in one's work, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over.

The Program activities are:

  • studio visits and open studio if the group is interested
  • contact to the local art szene,
  • organized museum tours,
  • scheduled art critiques,
  • published artists spotlight on each artist
  • professional install and exhibition pictures
  • 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, underfloor 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


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 50th round from Januar – March 2022
