Open Call | PS² short residencies 2021-2022 – closing 4 Sept

PS² offers artists and creative practitioners its space for a series of 15 x 4-5 day long residencies.

Part 1: 27 September- 30 October 2021
Part 2: 23 May – 25 June 2022

Used as a workspace, showroom, exhibition-performance-research or dream-space, the set-up will change in a fast turnaround, showcasing many creative positions. Each residency will be open to the public- at least at some stage- if the resident artist wish so.

With the lockdown having such a big impact on artists, the production of new work and the public interaction with contemporary art, the short residency programme hopes to help speed up the art ecology again.

All short residencies will be documented on our website, together with artist statements and links. We will offer curatorial support and critique, match and invite interested specialists and help in networking.

  • its project space
  • equipment: data projectors/ tvs/ media players/ boards/ stuff/ internet / tool box/ coffee machine, messy storage contents….
  • practical assistance and invigilation
