The Künstlerhaus Bethanien can look back on a long and successful history of promoting emerging artists on an international level. It is an established player within the Berlin and international art scene since 1974.

The artistic orientation of our programme includes all kinds of artistic media and practises. The Künstlerhaus offers a worldwide unique combination of studio and exhibition spaces as well as state-of-the-art workshops. Further support is offered in publishing catalogues and artist-books. Additionally-aside from technical, curatorial and PR support for solo exhibitions and public Open Studio events-an individual programme of studio visits and professional coaching is arranged.

The Künstlerhaus is located in a landmarked building complex, situated in the very heart of Berlin in the trendy neighbourhood of Kreuzberg.

Its work is subsidised by the Department for Culture and Europe of the Senate of Berlin as well as multiple renowned partners all over the world. The artists are selected in coordination with the partners, focusing on discourse oriented thinking and challenging original positions.

Participants in the International Studio Programme are given the opportunity to develop and implement a project over a fixed period of time, and to reflect on and consolidate their position in the Berlin art scene. The work of the Künstlerhaus is particularly characterised by the individual support and networking of the residency holders with the Berlin art scene.

Artists receive a monthly support from the sponsored grant during their stay. The grant also covers the studio and material costs, as well as a project presentation. As a rule, the artists' projects are presented to the public in the galleries of the Künstlerhaus Bethanien.
Emerging artists from the fields of visual and digital arts, performative arts, or writers from France, Germany, the Netherlands and Turkey are invited to apply for the open call. The applicants are sought to have lived and worked the last three years in one of the partner countries and show proof of competence and enthusiasm in respective artistic fields. Eligible artists can apply to the open call by filing up the application form and submitting their portfolios between 20 March and 30 April 2019 (latest by 23.59 GMT+3). Participants will then be selected by an international committee.
