culturia – artist in residence program

By Andrzej Raszyk, 5. Mai 2013

Katrina Neumann, the founder of an internet forum for sharing best practice examples, opinions, opportunity announcements  – Rate My Artist Residency  – kindly  invited us to an interview (May,2013).

It was an amazing occasion to share our vision of our residency format culturia – research on artistic process in writing practice and video interviews. Answering questions about motivations to start the project, on noticeable progress of the program, we tackled the position of the reviewer of submitted artists portfolios, here pointing to searched high quality level project proposals.
Over the past years (2006-2013) we had a pleasure to work with over than 150 artists, from almost every corner of the globe, curating and producing solo and group exhibitions, hosting big project teams, organizing well attended dinner parties and open studios, receiving status of satellite venue from Berlin festivals, facilitating 6 artists studios and temporary 200 sqm gallery space. Thanks to all and each of the participants, the courageous and talented team members project started to progress and bring fruits.

The culturia concept matured while collecting valuable experience and crystallized at the end of 2013. The project will continue in a form of books series and sporadically published video interviews with invited artists.

Now is a turn for a new format – Berlin Sessions.
