The Goethe@LUX Residency invites artists based in Germany who work with moving images to undertake a three-month residency at LUX in London and Glasgow.The residency programme is jointly hosted by the Goethe-Institut London and LUX, the leading organisation for the support and promotion of artists working with moving image in the UK, with offices in London and Glasgow.
The theme of the residency varies each year and is set out in each open call. During their residency the invited artist will have full access to LUX's archive and collection. The artist in residence will be supported in their research and development of their work by both teams at LUX and the Goethe-Institut, assisting with networking and showcasing their work part of a jointly devised public events programme which may take the form of screenings, talks, workshops and performances for example.
The residency programme includes a fee, a monthly stipend for sustenance, travel expenses within the UK, and production costs as required. LUX offers a dedicated work station in their building in Waterlow Park, North London while the Goethe-Institut invites the artist to stay at the institute’s guest apartment in South Kensington. The artist will have the opportunity to visit LUX Scotland and work at the Centre for Contemporary Art in Glasgow.
This year’s Goethe@LUX artist in residence is Berlin-based artist Sonya Schönberger who combines her studies in social anthropology and experimental media design in her artistic practice. The first Goethe@LUX artist in residence was video and performance artist Liz Rosenfeld, a Berlin-based film and video artist in 2017. In her practice Liz explores queer perspectives on history. 2018 saw new media artist Anahita Razmi take up residency at the Goethe-Instut Anahita investigated the future state of The Islamic Republic of Iran as seen from the perspective of a diverse range of diasporic political communities.
