ZK/U, G.A.S, Bag Factory, NCAI, Berlin / Lagos / Johannesburg / Nairobi Deadline: 05 April 2021
Starting in September 2021, ZK/U Berlin, G.A.S in Lagos, Bag Factory in Johannesburg and NCAI Nairobi, will host a new research residency programme with a focus on curatorial practices, the TURN2 RESIDENCIES.
The TURN2 RESIDENCIES facilitate research for emerging curators and cultural practitioners with curatorial experience (visual arts, cross-disciplinary) either from the African continent to come to Berlin, or from Germany to come to Johannesburg, Lagos or Nairobi to explore the vibrant cultural scenes as a starting point for sustainable curatorial exchanges.
This call invites emerging curators in the contemporary visual arts and/or with a cross-disciplinary approach and cultural practitioners with a curatorial interest based on the African continent, to undertake a fully-funded 3-month residency at the Centre for Arts and Urbanistics (ZK/U) in Berlin.
The residencies will take place between September 2021 and March 2022 (exact dates to be finalised in consultation between the host and each selected candidate).
A second round of the Open call will be published in October 2021 for a residency between March 2022 and December 2022.
