KuBa: kulturbahnhof is an independent non-profit art project. With our Artist in Residence program, we want to create a specific space for inspiration, dialogue and cooperation, open to the challenges of our time. KuBa: kulturbahnhof is located on the site of a former train station in the town of Klein Warnow (Brandenburg), on the Berlin-Hamburg railway. The residency program offers artists, writers and cultural scientists a place to work, create and experiment. The interaction with this unique location is an essential element of the project. The artistic directors of KuBa: kulturbahnhof are Sharon Horodi and Cheb Mika Kammerer. The two are artists, active in the field of video, photography, performance-art and creative writing. Both have many years of experience in curating exhibitions and artistic events, community based art projects and transcultural exchange programs. Vision: A train station is a space comprised of motion and of emotions, arrivals and farewells, a place of joy and longing. Like art, the station forms the thin line between the private and public spheres. Our vision is to create within this space a place that inspires one’s own work, and invites artists to interact with one another and the place itself. KuBa – Art Residency […]

SOMA is an independent contemporary art and culture space and initiative encourages collaborations among networks between cultural professionals and artists and academics and social activists from all over the world with the larger aim of supporting sustained dialogue. SOMA means Moon rays in the oldest language Sanskrit, the world of Moon is not as bright as it naturally should be, it is rather directed as the shadow of the Sun. The art practices and themes lay under the moon side – women, non-west, less-told stories, issues from less-mentioned regions are SOMA’s main interest to showcase, yet this founding concept doesn’t imply that it stands for any established doctrines or ideologies. SOMA defines itself as a platform where the true, mindful dialogue begins by presenting the art works strongly connected with the oldest question and matter of human being Who we are, Where we are, Where is our soul now. SOMA believes the open-warm-heart-feeling tactic will lead to its vision rather than the cold-systemized-think way. The not-for-profit art-socio space SOMA is located in multicultural Kiez, Kreuzberg, Berlin, was founded in 2014 by the journalist and artist Nabi Nara. In 2015, SOMA presented within ONS program of the Netzwerk freier Berliner Projekträume […]

AIM (Artists’ Initiatives’ Meetings) is an international artist-run network of artist-run initiatives. AIM was established in 2010 in order to create a common platform to share experiences and knowledge and to increase visibility of the artist-run art scene.
