OPEN CALL FOR LOCAL PARTICIPANTS / July – September 2019

“PILOTENKUECHE” is looking for artists from around Leipzig to participate in the “Local Participants Program” for a period of three months. This program aims to support the local art scene and to connect it to international artists.

 

Each accepted artist is offered a full stipend, provided by “PILOTENKUECHE” and financed by a private donor. 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 eleven international artists working in the space and two local participants participating on our program activities, 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.

Visiting: Halle and René Schäffer / 25.01.18

Last week we visited the studio of René Schäffer, the current artist in our Local Participant Program, where we discussed his photography practice, methodology, and influences. He gave us very interesting insights into different works of his artistic career and his creative processes, starting with light paintings and photo series at Galerie Nord to more recent works like anti-photographic images at his studio. This was our first tour of Halle, and we will certainly return. In the evening and back in Leipzig, there was also an event at our partner venue, Krudebude

Thank you René for showing us the city, gallery and studio!
