Visiting: Rayk Goetze

Last week we visited the studio of Rayk Goetze, who is one artist of the “Josef Filipp Gallery“. His figurative and in the same time abstract paintings are fascinating. He gave us the chance to ask questions, to talk about his artistic position, approach technique and brushes. Many thanks Rayk! It was wonderful!

building up the new space

A few weeks before we announced that the project PILOTENKUECHE will move into a new space. And we will! From 01.02.17 the project will host around 10 artists in a 465m² big studio which is based at Franz-Flemming-Str. 9, a new uprising area. The plans are done and we already started to build up the new space. In difference to the old one the project will be improved in several points. Here’s an impression during our daily building practice, which also shows the results after one week:

But what will be new?

  • 36m² big working areas, fully new equipped with a nice table, chair, lamp and working desks
  • new studio design
  • moveable walls to change the space and to create up to around 150m² big spaces
  • newly designed windows made by Raumbetrieb
  • a better electrical & changed light system
  • fast internet connection & wifi
  • ground heating
  • new, oil-covered concrete ground
  • shower in a closed area
  • new common space
  • new office area
  • and and and

Here are more impressions of the workout:

We are working with a nice team, which consists of Christian Prinsler, Lukas Baumann, Zsofia Gabor and her boyfriend Daniel, not to forget the helpers Natalia Kalicki, David Dunne & Bouzid Announ. We are doing hard to get all things done. And it works! We wish to thank all helpers, workers & companies who creating this space! You are great!

preview shows of the 30th round / 01.12 – 17.12.16

The latest shows of the recent residents from USA, Germany, Chile, France, Canada, Poland, UK, Japan, Ireland & the Netherlands will present recent results after they worked 2 months in the residency. This round of artists offers a very special focus on abstract painting, performance, drawing and science art. The works are presenting a diversity of expression around the topics of identity, technic & nature with performative & activism approaches. Each position lights from its own perpective onto contentual interfaces to light them out from diverse points of view.

The exhibitions aim to give a preview for the final presentation which will take place in January 2017 and to develop a dialoque between interests & artists. The goal is to overthink and to reflect the own position as well as the results of the others to discover interfaces and common topics.

The PILOTENKUECHE Artist Residency is a non-profit studio program open to artists of all internationalities. The work towards the common goal of a final group exhibition leads to intensive dialogue about individual ideas and working practices, binding the artist individuality temporarily into a group, which leads to a longer-term network that exists even after the residency is over.

These are the shows:
