About ZK/U Residency: http://www.zku-berlin.org/residency/

In the context of its research and residency program, ZK/U offers a ‘living & work space’: furnished studio-apartments (half of which have private bathrooms), communal facilities, shared production areas, a platform open for public events, lectures, discussions, screenings, performances and presentations.

Applicant Requirements
ZK/U welcomes artists, scholars, and practitioners (curators, activists, autodidacts, etc.) interested in cross-disciplinary theory and practice dealing with ‘the city’.
Artists should be working professionally in their fields and have a broad range of projects and exhibition experience. Scholars and practitioners should have some years of professional experience.
Artists, scholars, and practitioners can apply individually or as a group. We especially encourage group applications consisting of artists working with scholars or practitioners from other disciplines.
Furthermore, the residents are invited to use ZK/U as a platform, and propose their own formats or longterm satellite projects.

Selection Criteria
The selection criteria will be based upon the founding concept of ZK/U. There are no limitations concerning age or region of provenance of the applicant.
The application proposal should refer to one of the current themes of ZK/U residency program or to an independent research and practice proposal. (‘Ad Hoc’ theme)

Costs
For individual fellows, depending on the studio-apartment and length of stay, the resident’s costs are between 500 and 800 euro a month.
After being selected, ZK/U will support the invited residential fellow in their efforts to secure funding through external grants by providing the fellow with an official invitation and identifying relevant funding networks and grants.
