»Artist Exchange Residency Opportunities:
Glasgow / Berlin«

2018 marks a cultural exchange between the two largest cities in their respective countries – Glasgow in Scotland and Berlin in Germany – sprawling metropoles whose inhabitants are in a perpetual state of creating their own futures. Former centres of manufacturing and engineering, the erosion of their industrial bases has given partial rise to new cultural hubs and one of these is the medium of photography. A parallel exists through similarities in cultural and historical landscapes that have helped shape the cities and their peoples, as well as their cultural scenes, which gives both a critical position in the ‘art zeitgeist’.

Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow in collaboration with Ostkreuz Association for Photography together with Ostkreuzschule for Photography, Berlin are delighted to launch a call for submissions from photographers and artists working with photography, for International residencies in each city. Outcomes will be exhibited in Glasgow and in Berlin in later 2018.

The project is funded by Festival 2018 (the cultural programme of the first ever European Championships, co-hosted by Glasgow and Berlin), The Goethe Institut Glasgow, and The British Council UK/DK 2018.

Residency Structure

The opportunity includes a funded one-month stay for one photographer from Glasgow in Berlin through the Ostkreuz Association for Photography and one from Berlin in Glasgow through Street Level Photoworks. There is no strict theme, but key driving concerns are people and place, post-industrial futures, heritage and migration.

Dates for Glasgow artist in Berlin: July 2018 (precise dates TBC)
Dates for Berlin artist in Glasgow: August 2018 (precise dates TBC)

Each artist will contribute work made during their residency time for group exhibitions that will take place in Berlin and Glasgow in later 2018/19.
