OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS / PILOTENKUECHE October – December 2018

The independent project “PILOTENKUECHE” is looking for artists from around the world to come and work in the fully remodeled space for a period of three months in the time of October -December 2018. Each accepted artist is offered a partial stipend, provided by ‘PILOTENKUECHE’. We also maintain engagements with several partners, and by introducing our artists to these, make it possible for participants to cooperate with and exhibit in other venues. Our concept encourages experimental strategies and embraces a trans-disciplinary ethos, aiming to provide our participants with the experience of accomplishing something collectively. In a group of around eleven participants, a stimulating dialogue becomes vital in fostering an independent position in one’s work.

 

Participants receive all documentation necessary to apply for funding and the visa process. If required, the project can assist with additional individual reference letters. You can apply any time.

“What Did You Expect?”// Exhibition in Progress

This week, we focused on preparing our preview exhibition. The final show of our most recent residents from the UK, Canada, Israel, Korea, China, Slovakia, the US, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands, will present the work of nearly three months spent at the residency.

Through photography, found objects, painting, sculpture, and digital media, aesthetic and social boundaries are blurred. The 33rd round of artists is especially interested in the play of art, its capacity to contain, convey, or spur an experience. We are also pleased to incorporate the work of our local participants, Martin Schuster and Sébastien Kauffmann, as well as our guest artists, Willy Le Nalbaut and Ando Saori. 

All are welcome to attend our opening event this Saturday, December 16th.

Collaboration: Exhibition Partnership with Ping Pong // 2018

We are pleased to announce an additional local collaboration that will take place in 2018, within the scheme of our International Residence and Local Participants Program. 

PILOTENKUECHE will be exhibiting collective shows at Ping Pong, a versatile exhibition space, featuring interdisciplinary curation, film screenings, lectures and workshops. Ping Pong was founded by Marcel Noack, freelance artist, photographer and lecturer in the field of photography and moving image. The venue is located in the midst of the offspaces in west Leipzig, in the Plagwitz and  Lindenau neighborhoods and in the immediate vicinity of the larger art and cultural spaces Tapetenwerk and Westwerk.

We appreciate that this partnership came about after several pilots from the 33rd round self-organized three exhibitions at the venue. We would also like to thank the organizer, curator and artist Marcel Noack for his oppressiveness and collaborative spirit!
