Artquest: 3 Months in Berlin

Deadline: 4 July 2008 (RECEIVE)

Artquest: <<3>>
Visual Arts Studio Residency
15 September - 19 December 2008


Artquest, in partnership with ACAVA, is running its 3-month visual arts studio residency in Berlin from 15 September - 19 December 2008.

This is an exciting opportunity for a London-based visual arts/crafts practitioner at any stage of their career to live and make new work in one of Europe’s most dynamic and exciting cities.
Artquest / ACAVA will provide a free live/work studio for 3 months, return air fare, a £600 bursary and £100 towards artists materials.

There will be no pressure to produce a body of work as a result of this residency.
The selected artists sole obligation will be to write a short email diary / blog each month about their experiences. This could include updates on work produced, galleries visited, or a general overview of life in Berlin and could incorporate images and / or photographs.

About the studioThe selected artist will be based in a building shared with 40 local artists who are members of the Milchhof art group. It comprises a studio space (398 sqft), basic living space with cooking facilities and a mezzanine platform sleeping area. There is a shower and toilets across the corridor, which are shared with the other artists in the building. The live /work space is situated in Mitte, at the heart of the Berlin art scene.


This residency is only available to artists living and working in London. Artists can work in any medium and be at any stage of their careers - from recent graduates to established artists with decades of experience.
