CURATORIAL RESEARCH RESIDENCIES IN BERLIN FOR EMERGING CURATORS AND CULTURAL PRACTITIONERS BASED ON THE AFRICAN CONTINENT
Apply until: 24 October 2021
As part of the programme TURN2 – Artistic Co-Creation between Germany and African Countries, the Federal Cultural Foundation launched the TURN2 Residencies – Curatorial Research Residencies in Berlin, Lagos, Nairobi and Johannesburg in April 2021.
In September 2021, the open call for emerging curators based in the African continent coming to ZK/U Berlin goes into the second round. For curators based in Germany, there will be no second open call. This call invites emerging curators in the contemporary visual arts or with a cross-disciplinary approach and cultural practitioners with a curatorial interest based in the African continent, to undertake a funded 3-month residency at ZK/U Berlin. The residencies will take place between April 2022 and December 2022.
The TURN2 Residencies promote the initiation of curatorial partnerships and transcontinental networks between emerging curators and established art and cultural institutions as well as the exchange between the respective art scenes.
The TURN2 Residencies are a joint project of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation), the ZK/U Berlin and the Triangle Network, and are carried out in collaboration with the Nairobi Contemporary Art Institute (NCAI), the G.A.S. Foundation in Lagos and the Bag Factory in Johannesburg.

The ZK/U – Center for Art and Urbanistics in Berlin is a place of art production, an artists’ and researchers’ residence and an experimental programme platform that combines local creation with global discourses. ZK/U Berlin investigates existing forms of knowledge and practices in urban spaces as a springboard for the self-determination of the individual and the community. Also, it hosts a multidisciplinary residency programme, offering a living and working space for practitioners of all kinds (artists, researchers, curators, activists, professionals of various fields) whose approach explores the dynamics and experiences of the city. The common theme and interests that link the work of ZK/U residents allow mutual learning, spontaneous collaborations and exchanges to emerge, enriched by the diversity of disciplines and profiles of the residents. During their stay, residents are encouraged to involve themselves with ZK/U’s cultural programme and to propose their own formats. Applicants are invited to engage with the conceptual discourses of ZK/U Berlin in their research proposal, however, this is not a requirement as the TURN2 Residencies are open to all areas of interest.
Triangle Network is a global network of artists and visual arts organisations that support professional development and cultural exchange amongst artists, curators and other arts professionals through residencies, workshops, training and knowledge sharing.
The Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation) promotes art and culture within the scope of federal competence. One of its main priorities is to support innovative programmes and projects on an international level. The Foundation focuses on cultural exchange and cross-border cooperation by initiating projects of its own and funding project proposals in all areas of the arts with no stipulations as to theme or subject. The German Federal Cultural Foundation
is financed by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media by resolution of the German Bundestag.
