coGalleries is pleased to announce the open call for Artist in Residence Berlin. As a contemporary art gallery with a beautiful space in Berlin-Mitte, we are interested in a creative project regarding the design, use and implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) within the contemporary arts. Applicants with own residencies and organisations who are looking for collaborators, please also apply or get in contact to us on a direct line. All residents and collaborators will get the chance to exhibit in one of our group- and/or solo exhibitions in our art gallery in the city center of Berlin.
A glimpse of our studio.
AI technology uses computer systems, based on programming and algorithms, that learn, reason and self-correct to simulate human intelligence. AI is a powerful tool that can enhance the human experience, but also contribute to dehumanising actions, increase pre-existing social prejudices and thereby endanger or restrict the free flow of individuals. If you are an artist whose work engages with critical themes and ideas surrounding AI systems and automation, then this might be the right place for you to further develop your reflections. We want to encourage artists who are already pushing the boundaries of technological innovation to explore all the exciting perspectives AI has to offer.

Our studio loft is located in a newly built warehouse
Residents have 24/7 access to our 160 square meters artist studio loft with a 30 square meters rooftop terrace. The facilities are spacious (approximately 6-meter high ceilings), filled with natural light and equipped with a beautiful kitchen, a bathroom, a cozy lounge area, large work tables, all sorts of tools, a wide range of technical equipment and a professional photo printer. It is a very special and unique working environment. All furniture is on wheels, which means that we can completely reorganise the space within a few minutes.
The studio space is a shared work-space, allowing for peer-to-peer exchange and potential collaborations between artists, researchers and curators. It is a part of a recently built complex located inside of the old FAHRBEREITSCHAFT, which houses some major German art collections, Berlin´s leading art framer, artist studios, carpenter workshops and a professional photo printing company. It is a 20 min. tram ride from our art gallery located in the center of Berlin-Mitte.
