Artist Residencies of the Goethe-Institut Prague


The Goethe-Institut established its „Artists in Residence“-program in 2009. Every year selected German artists are invited to spend a few months in Prague. Their stay in the Czech Republic contributes to the co-operation between the German and Czech art scene and helps artists from both countries find new, innovative ideas. The program’s emphasis is on the visual arts. Among others, Philip Topolovac, Danielle de Picciotto, Alexander Hacke, Sabine Richter, Sehnaz Seker and Andrew Gilbert have spent time in Prague.

Every year the Goethe-Institut Prag invites several artists to the Czech Republic as Artists in Residence. In this new cultural environment the artists experience stimuli for new pieces of art and international networking, as well as evolving projects. This intercultural dialogue within contemporary art leads to enrichment for both the German artists concerned and the Czech art and culture scene.
