Kunst-Stoffe is a cultural organisation committed to exploring issues of
value and waste. We
pursue this mission in three areas of activity: Kunst-Stoffe maintains an
changing exhibition of discarded materials and makes them available for
practitioners. We carry out and present projects investigating aesthetics
and strategies of
reuse. We offer workshops and facilities to provide a practice ground for
of the ideas of sufficiency and subsistence.
The residency includes free housing for the period of stay and offers work
space at Kunst-
Stoffe. The artist will have a small studio at exclusive disposal and
workspace, as well as partial access to equipped workshops for wood, metal
work. The acquisition of materials will be supported if necessary.
Living and travelling expenses have to be covered by the participant.
provide support in the acquisition of travel grants if desired.
Towards the end of the stay, each artist has the opportunity to present
work process and
results, along with a public program. During the stay, participants will be
supported in having
open studio presentations and holding workshops, if desired.
