On the occasion of the Open Studios exhibition, GlogauAIR will edit a catalog with information and photos of every resident artist, as well as a flyer and press release.
You are also invited to take part on the different activities and collaboration projects organized in or by GlogauAIR, including artists talks, interviews, studio visits and interchange programs with other residences and institutions, as well as a welcome lunch to get introduced to GlogauAIR’s community.
You will be included in the resident artists’ database accessible on our homepage. You have the option to exhibit your work for up to 2 weeks in our showcase window facing the street. Your work any other activities you participate in will be regularly shared across our social media channels.
We will be offering assistance, advice and attending basic technical demands at specific points during the residency and in preparation for the open studios
GlogauAIR will also provide access to all the equipment and tools available in the residence, to use for one week, extendible if no other artist demands it:

Although we do our best to help, residency artists have the duty to keep the commom spaces (bathroom and kitchen) clean and tidy. And also artists have to clean their bedrooms and studios before they leave.
When you arrive you will find your studio clean and everything ready to work, you will have to leave it in the same conditions
The main language in the residence is English.
If the artist comes from a non-European country, he/she has to go through the process of obtaining a German Visa valid throughout the time of residence. We offer our collaboration by writing a letter of admission.

The artist must take responsibility to pay individually for the costs of the studio prices and insurance, transport and travel expenses. Normally the artist will look for a grant in his/her country to finance all the costs, although GlogauAir will do everything possible to facilitate the search for financial Aid, i.e. sending a non binding letter of invitation that endorses the decision of the artist. On the other hand, GlogauAir is constantly looking for sponsor entities to bring granted artists and pay for activities of the residents.
If you’re looking for funding, here you can find a selection of funding programs.
The artists will have to present the finished documentation within the period established by GlogauAIR; these dates will be announced on our website.
A jury formed of professionals from the Berlin art community will choose the admitted artists and the decision will be communicated by e-mail only to the selected artists one month after the application deadline.
