culturia is a residency program based in Berlin

brief introduction to culturia

culturia has been building its networks since 2005 and has progressively changed from a residency using temporary spaces in Berlin to develop into an experimental place where the practice of exploring artistic process became the concept.

idea and program

culturia is a twofold: an art residency and a non-material collection. Strategically declining in its approach to pure studio practice, culturia invites artists to present projects in close relation between process and presentation.

The main point of the program is to enhance the internal development of the artist during the short-term residency, which can be more valuable than a production of new objects.Following this vision culturia has opened, parallel to the realization of the artist’s proposal, a construction of a document that seeks for the understanding of an ideal point of view on art. Here, the approach and medium are chosen by the artist as long as the statement remains “visible” to others.

The non-material collection is used with agreement of artists to safeguard a record of their singular point of view. Gathered material will be used for retrospective exhibitions and other eligible events.

open to

Artists and researchers. No restrictions on media.
