KUNSTRAUM is calling for submissions for our 2024-2025 Artist-in-Residence
Program .

KUNSTRAUM is a community of artists by artists with the goal of redefining the
collaboration between artists and curators. Through our program, we aim to explore the
relationships between artists and curators by opening our gallery spaces to those
interested in exploring unconventional, engaging ideas and taking risks.
Our Artist-in-Residency program offers three-month residencies for national and
international artists on a quarterly cycle. In 2024 and 2025, the three-month residencies
will take place from January-March, April-June, July-September, and October-
December, with multiple spots available for each period.

All resident artists are invited to pursue their independent projects, interact with our
established community of artists, designers, and filmmakers, interact with the incoming
artists and curators of our ongoing exhibition program, participate in the monthly studio
visits, and exhibit in the Annual Members’ Show. To learn more about KUNSTRAUM,

KUNSTRAUM is born out of a necessity to create community and foster collaboration
between artists, architects, curators, designers, filmmakers, and writers. The
KUNSTRAUM model features excellent studio locations, networking, research
opportunities, and discourse for creative production. After successfully inaugurating our
first space in New York in February 2015, we seek to expand to Berlin. KUNSTRAUM’s
global identity is designed to offer and promote an international community, mobility, and
visibility in the visual arts. Recent press coverage includes Communication Arts,
Creator’s Project, Huffington Post, Artnet News, Interview Magazine, Art F City, Artnet

News, and Musée Magazine. With “Video Shop,” a project at NADA New York,
KUNSTRAUM won the 2016 Artfair Goers Award and best booth.
