In the frame of Flutgraben Performances we encountered many artists, who while participating in our events expressed a strong desire to spend more time working and researching at Flutgraben. Finally this dream came true and we are very happy to announce that we now have the opportunity to offer artistic residencies to Berlin-based artists, which will allow them to work in the studio for a longer time and without financial concerns.
Flutgraben Performances Residencies was initiated in 2020 by Clément Layes, Jasna Layes-Vinovrski, Moritz Majce and Sandra Man. Since early 2021 it is run by Clément Layes, Moritz Majce and Sandra Man. Production and organisation management is done by Tiphaine Carrère Loquet.
The following texts are written by artists who took the time to research with us changing ways to invite new resident artists. Each artist was asked to find their own approach to the process of selection, discussing their criteria of deciding with us and their colleagues.
We want to thank all the participants for their effort in finding with us new ways to choose, host, accompany artists in residencies that try to care about and pay attention to the diversity and the complexity of the Berlin dance scene.
