About

Concept writer, producer, consultant in the cultural and creative sector. Raszyk started his career as a cultural manager by developing an artist in residence program ‚culturia‘ (www.culturia.de). The project was focused on the documentation of artistic process through the practice of notation and video interviews (2006-2014), shaped as a cooperation with an artist Nuno Vicente.

Since 2009 he has been a director of the physical archive and a network of 250 artists, curators and project spaces ‚Berlinerpool Arts Network‘ (www.berlinerpool.de). In 2012 Berlinerpool was distinguished by the Arts Council of City Berlin for its programming with a first Project Spaces and Art Initiatives Award  (talks, exhibitions, workshops, services). The team of Berlinerpool consisted of Paz Ponce, serving as a curator and Aleksandra Pronina, cultural manager.

In the years 2009-­2014 Raszyk was a publisher of a weekly updated online platform ‚mondaynews‘ (www.mondaynews.net). As an editor and copy-writer he provided information on international open­-calls for cultural workers, in time growing the mailing list to 13.000 regular readers.

He is a founder of “Berlin Sessions” (www.berlinsessions.org) artist in residence program that proposes a personalized approach for rooting the resident in Berlin art landscape (consulting, networking and ground work for project presentation). Residential applications are developed in cooperation with both, nominating organizations and selected artist. Projects are financially backed by single-term or long-term co-operations with partner institutions.

For a period of two years (2015-2016) he worked as a consultant for culture, higher education and promotion strategies in department of Public Diplomacy and Culture at the Polish Embassy in Berlin. He lives and works in Berlin (www.andrzejraszyk.net).
