Goethe-Institut Villa Kamogawa © Andreas Schiekofer

Who: Artists and people active in culture from Germany

Section: Architecture, Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Design, Literature, Film, Cultural Criticism & Theory, Music

Deadline for submissions: 8 April 2022 12:00 pm (CET)

In 2011, the first artist villa of the Goethe-Institut opened in Kyoto on the occasion of the 150 year anniversary of the German-Japanese relations.

As a program of the Goethe-Institut, the Villa Kamogawa offers German artists and people active in culture the opportunity, to live and work in Japan on a three months scholarship.

The residency in Kyoto should serve as an inspiration and as an artistic orientation to the scholarship holders. In direct, personal exchange with the local cultural scene, they can develop new projects and can establish or strengthen work contacts with Japanese cultural Institutions and people active in culture.

In this manner, an intercultural dialogue unfolds, which enriches both the scholarship holders and the Japanese cultural scene.
