PROGRAM

The project ‘PILOTENKUECHE’ supports artists and is an international art program based in Europe’s boomtown Leipzig, Germany. Hidden in an old romantic factory, the independent project is organized by artists for artists. The team operates with a trans-disciplinary background between art, theory & diverse sciences. The goal is to provide artists with a base to work from, and acts as a conduit to the local art scene. 

 

Our concept strives to create a communal space for experimental collaboration and discourse between participants, as well as with the greater Leipzig community. The project provides a range of programs, aiming to connect & engage different disciplines. Each category of our art program coalesces during a 3 months period, after which we realize a collaborative exhibition. Between international & local artists, curators & enthusiasts, the programs we offer are:

The PILOTENKUECHE philosophy is focused on an interest of exchange through group dynamics, experimental strategies and trans-disciplinary ethos. The kinetic dialogue in a group of participants influences each to experiment in their art, ideas, approaches and methods. PILOTENKUECHE wishes to provide our participants with the experience of accomplishing something as a group, and moreover, in experimenting with new forms of cooperation which are vital in fostering an independent position in one’s work. This leads to an intensive dialogue about individual ideas and working practices, binding the participants temporarily within the group, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over.

      Dear Naser,

      PILOTENKUECHE is a place to learn things. So it is also an opportunity to increase your language skills. But it should be sufficient to understand each other.

    Hello,

    I am currently a student and will receive my BFA in the Spring of 2017. I am exploring potential residency options post graduation, and found your program to be very interesting. My main medium is ceramics. I was wondering if there were any facilities for this or if there were any in the surrounding area to take work to if not?

    Thank you,
    Olivia
