PICTURE BERLIN currently offers two residencies per year:

The Fall Session

The Fall Session is a professional development opportunity for resident artists to be part of the Berlin scene in a concentrated and focused way through portfolio reviews, artist talks given by the residents and tours through the city which highlight the current pulse of the city. The Fall Session is geared to the artist who is ready to network and move to the next step in their emerging career. The residency is about exchanging ideas and facilitating connections not only in Berlin and beyond. 

The 10 day program is geared towards the artist who wants to focus on their professional development and facilitates their entrance into the Berlin art scene.

The program fee is: €1,759.00 for 10 days of programming excluding the cost of housing.

The Fall Session offers:

 + 6 choreographed artist walks titled "In Search of the Miraculous" which is a 10 hour performance/endurance walk through 6 different neighborhoods with 8 Berlin based international artists

+ A tour of Project Space venues

+ A tour of Commercial Galleries

+ A curatorial portfolio review that includes between 5-8 portfolio reviews by International curators based in Berlin 

+ A public artist talk given by each resident to the greater Berlin art community at tëte project space

+ 4 artist talks and studio visits given by Berlin based artists 

+ The professional development workshop "Future Glitter" which is hosted by Eva Hartmann, a  Berlin based coach, helping the residents develop a clear and specific strategy for their work 

+ A tour of the Boros Sammlung

The program also offers:

+ a 90+ page Handbook filled with resources, biographies of everyone involved in the program and the schedule for the summer 

+ a copy of THE FIELD GUIDE Berlin - a 125 page book that is dedicated to helping artists find the right resources to make their work in Berlin

+ an A/B zone public transporation travel ticket valid for the length of the program

The intense and dynamic programming is a chance for the resident artists to experience Berlin full on - with a well rounded program that engages the residents with conversation, dialogue and most importantly exchange not only with each other but more importantly with the city.

We are pleased to recommend a chance to hear former participating artists talk about their experiences in the program to better help potential participating artists understand what the program can offer.
