Academy for Sufficiency in Reckenthin / Germany in collaboration with Kunst-Stoffe – Centre for re-useable Materials and Group Global 3000 did offer three week residencies to artists of all disciplines. Three artists builded Works of Sustainability and Oeconomic. We showed it in the exhibition.
This residency addresses artists with an interest to work on issues of sustainability and economics. Sustainability is understood as a principle of societal organisation considering ecological constraints while aiming at social justice. Economy is understood in a broad sense, as the organisation of human supply. In that sense, the economic organisation has a large influence on our quality of life. At the same time, it determines to what extend planetary boundaries can be respected. We as suppliers expect as a result a work that is addressed in this field and can be exhibited. Possible are Object, Photo, Video, Installation, Sound, Performance, Image.
The residency offers room and board and work space in the Akademie fuer Suffizienz in a rural setting. Basic workshop and equipment is available as well as basic art supplies. Subsequent to the studio phase participating artists have a group exhibition in the Projectspace Group Global 3000, Berlin.
Participants cover their travel expenses. We don’t want to contribute to the climate-related problems of air traffic. Therefore, we prefer applications from within train distance. We will provide support in the acquisition of travel grants if desired. Renate Schweizer is supported by Sylvia Kotting-Uhl, Member of the German Bundestag and the Members of Parliament Bettina Lisbach and Alexander Salomon.
