Since 2007 "PILOTENKUECHE" is an international art program based in Germany's new art capital Leipzig. The independent project is run by artists to support and empower artists.

 

The International Art Program invites 12 Artists from around the world for each round, to work together in our 465m² communally used studio space and realize one or exhibitions during their stay. The studio is located in a romantic, remodeled old barbed wire factory. With its exposed bricks large windows, high ceiling, and above all underfloor heating, this environment is inspiring. Our concept strives to create a communal space that can lead to experimental collaboration and discourse between participants, as well as with the greater Leipzig community.

Our program is multi-faceted. Firstly, it includes visiting artist studios, exhibition spaces, project spaces, exhibits, and going on gallery and museum tours. Secondly, a preview exhibition or open studio event presenting initial work, takes place mid-way through the residency. Furthermore, scheduled consultations and critiques, culminating in a final group exhibition. During the final exhibition, the studio becomes our exhibition space. the project publishes an article about each artist on our website and offers documentation to all activities, including installation pictures from the openings. Starting each quarter, one round of our residency program is 3 Months. The program is open to all disciplines, we offer basic tools, but assist if special ones are needed. 

Accomodation costs are additional, the project offers one apartment which hosts two artists. We have a network of people who host our artists on a regular base.

 

The primary languages in use are English and German. 
The artists receive all documentation necessary to apply for funding and the visa processes. If required, the project assists with additional individual reference letters. In Addition each accepted artist is offered a partial stipend in kind, provided by PILOTENKUECHE. Furthermore we maintain engagements with several friends, to get in contact with the Leipzig art scene and increase the artists visibility.
