ZK/U welcomes artists, scholars and practitioners that concern themselves with the phenomenon of 'the city'. The programme is open to a range of contemporary artistic positions that are conceptual, interventionist and contextual. Artists are expected to have a broad record of projects and exhibitions. Scholars and practitioners should have some years of professional experience. One can apply individually or as a group. Group applications consisting of artists working together with scholars or practitioners from other disciplines are especially welcome. There are no limitations concerning age or region of provenance of the applicant.

With collaborative practices and peer-to-peer learning at its core, the residency is about exchanging with and learning from other artists and practitioners. It is a space for urban experimentation where fellows connect through common themes and interests. ZK/U offers a “living and working” space within a former train station building, located in a dynamic public park. Hosting regular public events catering to a diverse audience, ZK/U is a lively cultural venue, and residents are encouraged to involve themselves with ZK/U’s programme and propose their own format. Artists are invited to outline their project and practices for a select audience at ZK/U’s weekly dinner and/or during the monthly studio visits of professionals and associates from our international network. If they wish, fellows can also share their work with a broader audience during our bi-monthly open studio format.
