This was the 35th Round

Last week we said goodbye to our most recent residents. We will remember the ideas and collaborative spontaneity inspired by the second round of 2018 to work at our studio! We would also like to thank our intern, local participants, guests and friends, attendees and our supporters, as well as the broader Leipzig community for participating in our events. We hope to foster a continued exchange between our international participants and the local artists.  
Here is a selection of impressions from the 35th round, including museum tours, gallery visits, artist talks, and our preview and final events:

Final Consultations // 35th Round

As the studio quiets down in the wake of our final exhibition, we are holding final consultations for the first time at Pilotenkueche. In an individual conversation with the program director, each artist discusses their experiences during the program, their impressions of the final show, and the evolution of their work during the residency. This consultation allows the artist to reevaluate their work and to explore their ideas with someone who has experienced the work from the outside, enabling them to reflect upon their process, experience, and future aspirations. With the end of the program approaching, we are sad to say goodbye to our current residents, but are looking forward to welcoming the 36th round!

Work in progress: Setup of the Final Exhibition // 08.06.18

After two and a half months of the program, the artists are preparing for the final exhibition in the studio rooms of Pilotenkueche. With the support of the curator, positions are negotiated, new combinations of artworks are discovered, and even walls find new homes as the studio undergoes a metamorphosis in the days leading up to the opening on Friday, which will include work from each of our international residents and local participants, as well as performances from guest artists. 

This time, the final exhibition is incorporated into the Franz-Flemming Open Studio event — during the weekend, several other studios and art spaces on Franz-Flemming-Straße can also be visited. We are excited to show you what we have been working on this round, and hope to see you there!

Re-View: Consultations // 30.05.18

The consultation between a curator and an artist is a crucial moment for the exhibition. The direct contact between the participants guides the overall direction of the curation, and encourages creativity, a process that transforms the initial and individual ideas. In this pairing, we develop a different concept about an exhibition, one that is greater than the ideas of one mind. The consultation period also allows the artist to reevaluate their work and to compare their ideas with an outsider, which ultimately helps define their position in the exhibition. It is likewise essential for the curator to understand the individual pieces that are a part of the exhibition as a whole. We are looking forward to a night of performances and collaboration, and would again like to invite you to Bauchgefühl, the final exhibition of the 35th round at our studios!
