Program Description:

Round 35th April - June
"PILOTENKUECHE" is an international art program based in Leipzig, Germany. The independent project is organized by artists with a transdisciplinary background between art, theory & diverse sciences.
The program invites selected artists from around the world to come and work in the fully remodeled space for a period of three months. 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.We’re looking for artists to participate on the 35th round during from April - June 2018.
