coGalleries artist residency Berlin is aimed at a stimulating exchange between international artists, artists curators, art organizations and art institutions. Each artist residency ends with a solo exhibition in our art gallery, located in the city center of Berlin´s famous gallery district.

Our Studio Loft

Residents will work from our 160 sqm artist studio loft which is located in the vibrant creative east, in the art compound of FAHRBEREITSCHAFT, home to one of Berlin´s leading contemporary private art collections “Haubrok Collection”. Besides the exhibition venues from the art collection, we are located in a dynamic environment with other emergent and established artists and their studios, a fine art printing studio "Artificial Image", Berlins finest art framer "Bilderrahmen Neumann" and a list of other cultural and creative companies. The industrial and creative neighbourhood of Lichtenberg is just 20 min tram ride from our gallery space in the center of Berlin-Mitte.

Collaborations

We work closely together with partnering galleries, public institutions, foundations, curators, art advisors, art organizations and visual artists within the field of contemporary arts throughout Europe, China, Brazil, US and the Middle East. We also regularly run open calls for residency proposals that you can find here.

How we support our residents

All artists participating in our Berlin artist residency will be part of a series of external studio visits, gallery tours, panel discussions, portfolio viewings, openings and other art-related events in our gallery space or at collaborative projects and exhibitions with partners from Berlin and other cities. Each artist in residence or art collective in residence gets the chance to present their work in a solo exhibition in our gallery space or a private open studio event. Furthermore, we support each resident to find further opportunities in participating in other group shows during the residency program or after. Resident activities like workshops, studio visits, video screenings, artist talks and performances can both be hosted either in our gallery space or our studio loft. We make sure that our residents gain insight and connections into the vibrant berlin art scene. Residents receive invitations to private events, member clubs, exhibition openings, book launches and other art-related events. Besides regular conversations with our curators, we always look out for further inspiring people to support the residents projects and process with reflection, critical feedback and our local and international network.

Type of artists and media we are scouting for

We would like to emphasize that we are looking for professional international artists to possibly collaborate with in the near future. Our team has a long track record in non-commercial practices and in running NGO alike structures, however, with our artists in residency program we aim at boosting artistic careers also in an economic sense and therefore bring in collectors, curators and artists to support with feedback and to foster new connections with important actors of the cultural scene and last but not least the art market.

We are explicitly not focussed on a particular media. We are open to diverse artistic disciplines like painting, photography, urban art, performance, research-based practices and also curatorial residencies. The primary languages during the artist residency are english and german but we handle fluently spanish, portuguese and chinese.
