Who: Teams of two artists from Germany and France 

Section: Interdisciplinary

Duration: 1 month

Closing date for applications: 31 May 2020


The Goethe-Institut Chile and the Institut Francais Chile offer a French-German residency programme for researchers*, in which approximately five teams of two - one member each from Germany and France - conduct a joint field research in Chile within one month in the second half of 2020.
The focus of our program is to carry out territorial research that emphasizes the importance of the problems on the ground; the approach, be it artistic, scientific, academic or social, should involve the population, especially since the social unrest that began on 18 October 2019.

Area of Focus

The disciplines to be taken into account in this programme are visual arts, scenic performances, sound art, media art, film, architecture and urbanism, in conjunction with other disciplines related to knowledge transfer. The focal points are: Territory + conflict, art + science, environment + activism, participation (citizen, community, democracy), etc.

Targeted Candidates 

Interdisciplinary teams of two can participate, consisting of a German or a person living in Germany and a French or a person living in France. If groups with more than two members are interested, the programme is open to consider these applications if one of the hosts is interested.

It is mandatory that at least one person in the team of two speaks Spanish, unless the host decides otherwise.

The project with which the application is made should be developed jointly, specifically for one of the residence partners, taking into account the profile of that partner and the time available.

Teams of two may apply without prior joint work experience; however, it is still necessary that at least one member has experience in developing research and in dealing with artistic proposals.

Applicants will carry out at least one activity to publicise the research; this could be a workshop, a workshop talk, or an exhibition about the process; with the hosts and also in Santiago.

The participants must take out travel insurance.

Duration of Residency

The residencies last one month and take place between the second half of 2020 and the first half of 2021. Specific dates will be agreed with local partners.

Benefits of the Residency 

The local partners are hosts to the residents and are committed to providing accommodation with a workplace to enable the investigation specified in the partner profile. They also undertake to establish contact with the local academic/artist scene and to provide support for the possible production of results related to the residency (see list below). The list of local partners can be extended (see update on the homepage).

The Goethe-Institut and the Institut Francais are responsible for the international call for proposals, as well as for the financing of international and national flights, expense allowance of 20€ per day, fees for workshops and presentations (max. 500€ per person) and production cost subsidy on application.

  • Photocopy of a valid passport; with a minimum validity date of 31.12.2020
  • CV of the participants
  • Portfolios: individually and collectively with a maximum of 10 works recently created and no larger than 10MB in PDF format.
  • Presentation of the project, which should be coherent with the location of the selected residence (in Spanish).
