Artist-in-residence program for Nordic artists in Leipzig
The artists in Leipzig receive their own studio and are professionally accompanied by the “Atelier für Radierung Maria und Vlado Ondrej“ in the production of a graphic work. The works that are being produced during the residencies will be exhibited to interested visitors at the quarterly occuring gallery tour, “Spinnereirundgang“. Moreover, after the conclusion of the residencies, the graphic works of all northern European artists-in-residence will be exhibited on tour through northern Europe.
Residencies as a stage for cultural exchangeResidencies are in step with the times and are highly coveted among artists. They allow a concentrated period of development away from familiar surroundings. Moreover, they offer a chance for new impressions, inspiration, and the growth of one‘s professional network. New ideas are born out of exchanges with local artists and curators, and from here new projects can be developed and realised.
The Goethe-Institut has made the promotion of cultural exchanges one of its aims. Residency programmes for international artists help achieve this aim. Nordic Leipzig does not merely bring Scandinavian artists and their German contemporaries together, it also offers participants from Scandinavia the opportunity for cultural exchange amongst each other.
