Artist-in-residence summer, close to nature, southern Germany





The ELEVEN Artist Residence is an international residency program for artists - located in Starzach-Börstingen, Germany. It is a self-administrated non-profit organisation. ELEVEN artspace wants to create an environment for inspiration – a place for artists where they can concentrate on their work, can experiment and play.

The residency program offers combined living and working spaces with private bedrooms for 1, 2 or 3 persons. The accommodations and workshops are situated in the former administrative offices of an old school (teachers' room, rector’s, student council room, classrooms, etc.). The rooms - most have a washbasin/sink - are simply furnished and could be occupied with 1-3 artists (depending on the room). Toilets and shower are located down the hallway. A fully-equipped community kitchen is also available as well as a patio with a BBQ possibility. By special arrangement there are various other spaces which can be used: a large communal studio (about 70m²), small work room, a small performance space incl. an old school piano, small drums, basic sound equipment. On the school grounds there are further opportunities: large walls, fields and forests, the Neckar valley and the river itself.

During the residency there are ample possibilities to present public artist discussions, readings, lectures, etc. A group exhibition takes place in august in the Town of Tübingen, 25 km away. The project as a whole is well-documented by the regional papers. Works-in-progress can be publicised in social media in cooperation with the artists.

The artist-in-residence program is only available between June 1st and September 30th. The duration of a residency is from one to two months. Rooms for “artists-on-tour” and shorter periods (< one month) can also be provided by special arrangements.

There are a few bikes available for rent.
