OPEN CALL FOR CURATORS / PILOTENKUECHE January – March2018

The Open Call for Curators for the January – March 2018 round of our international art program is active now and we are open for applications. The program invites selected artists from around the world to come and work in the fully remodeled space for a period of three months. 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.

 

The project invites within the “Emerging Curator Program” curators to gain direct experience in the field. Invited curators engage with a group of artists and learn complex social, theoretical and practical aspects of accommodating various concepts and mediums in a single exhibition. This program aims to support the young profesaionals and to connect them to international as well as local artists and the greater Leipzig community. We 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 international and local artists a stimulating dialogue becomes vital in fostering an independent position in one’s work while binding the individuals temporarily within the group, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over.

We’re looking for interns to participate on our program in the 34th round during from January – March 2018 until 30.11.17.

Term: January – March 2018

Round Oct. – Dec. 2018: 30.06.18

WHAT WE PROVIDE
We offer the chance to connect with artists and expand the personal network we understand the project as a platform for the participating curator, to gain insights as well as to experiment in a practical field, to benefit their own position, concepts, as well as overall career.

EXPECTATIONS
We expect openness, good English / German skills, a hands-on mentality, flexibility and the ability to work independently, paired with significant skills in contemporary art. The curator is expected to work actively within the group of artists to develop, mobilize, and realize concepts of the planned exhibition.

Open Studio // international group exhibit / 03-04.11.17

The upcoming show of our most recent residents from the UK, Canada, Israel, Korea, China, Slovakia, the US, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands will present ongoing work after a month spent at the residency. This round of artists has a particular interest in painting, installation, print media, found objects and performance.

The “Open Studio” event is a preview for the final presentation, taking place on December 16th of 2017. This exhibit aims to share the research and production that has continued at the new site of Pilotenkueche. It is our goal to trigger and to develop a dialogue, to propel a participative mandate between enthusiasts & artists.  

On the second day of the Open Studios, we would like to invite the public to further participate in an open discussion about the process of our current residents.

“Work in Dialogue” Talks:  4.11.17, 14:00h 

The PILOTENKUECHE art program is an independent project, open to artists of all nationalities.

Visiting: East and Central Leipzig // 26.10.17

Last week, we were led through a history and art related tour in the east of Leipzig. At our first stop at  “Pögehaus e.V.” Jan Keilhauer gave us an introduction to the aims of collective community endeavors in the east, in times of rapid gentrification. During our walking tour we stopped to speak at the old site of PILOTENKUECHE, as well as at an underground gallery Bistro 21. Our east-side tour ended with an evening visit to an opening at the MdbK.

Re-View: Artists Talks // 19.10.17 / 33rd Round

Here are a few impressions of last weeks introductory in-house artist talks with the newest residents from the UK, Canada, Israel, Korea, China, Slovakia, the US, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands. We gained an insight on the current approaches at our studios, highlighting diverse methods of negotiation between space, object, and interpretation. Be it in the junk yards of London, the perfect grid of Chicago’s streets, or from within the fading memory of artifact and attire, this round has an interest in reinterpreting tradition, pinching social norms, and using interdisciplinary methods in ways that are both playful and sincere. We are excited to witness the discourse and development of this group!
