Arnis Residency 2019 Open Call


No Funding
Free / No Costs
Arnis, Germany


Applicants are invited to submit a brief description of a work they would like to finalise and to show during the period of their residency. Due to the short stay, we encourage existing projects and lines of research that can somehow be linked to the site, however, we also welcome feasible new engagements. The residency is open to multiple disciplines such as performance, film, painting, sculpture, photography, writing, installation, sound and new media.

Number of Participants

Taking place from 18 August – 1 September 2019, we invite two artists – couples and duos welcome – to propose a project resonating with Arnis economic, socio-political or geographical conditions.

Program Description

ramoslübbert is delighted to announce the third international artist residency in Arnis, an annual programme which invites contemporary artists to live and work on a half-island in Northern Germany. With only 279 inhabitants and the size of 0.45m2, Arnis is not just the smallest town of Germany, but also a place of great events. Its history of sea related industries remains visible in the functioning shipyards, fisherboats, port facilities as well as in the production sites for sails and nautical charts. Arnis Residency aims to bring new artistic perspectives into this context, from which to encounter a world increasingly characterised by connections and flows beyond its cities. Aiming to expand the notion of rural places as mere retreats, and to contribute to the production of a creative hub outside the urban context, the residency will culminate in a public event spread across different locations in Arnis.
