overview

Dekoloniale Memory Culture in the City announce the fourth open call for the Dekoloniale Berlin Residency 2024 in collaboration with Contemporary And (C&). They invite artists, architects, designers, directors, photographers, fashion designers or urban practitioners to apply for a residency at Dekoloniale Memory Culture in the City of Berlin.

As in the three previous editions, applicants are invited to uncover and transform historical colonial stratifications and dominant narratives in Berlin’s public space. In 2024, Dekoloniale Memory Culture in the City will focus on Berlin’s historic centre and adjacent North Side, thus examining in depth the city districts of Berlin-Mitte with an emphasis on the neighbourhood of Berlin-Wedding.

The three selected residents are expected to create artistic interventions that will be presented in the framework of the Dekoloniale Festival and the Dekoloniale exhibits on 14-17 November 2024.

The residents are encouraged to consider hybrid modes of thought, research, and practice. The programme favours forms of expression that expand disciplinary boundaries, and encourages bold, larger scale interventions at the main residency site.

Speakers of all mother tongues are encouraged to apply, however please note that the three residents are expected to be able to communicate and collaborate in English. The residents are provided with travel costs, accommodation and a per diem in Berlin throughout the residency period, a production budget for the implementation of the project, and a fee.

The selected residents will have full access to the Dekoloniale project space, receive curatorial guidance and production support. Participation in the twice weekly Dekoloniale workshop series and consulting session schedule is mandatory.

The preparation for the Dekoloniale Residency will already begin on and after 7 March 2024, when active cooperation of the selected residents is required in order to enable the official permit application process for the urban interventions and in order to facilitate visa application processes (where applicable).

The production of the residency works in Berlin will take place within the period of 6 months (from mid-May to mid-November 2024), with a public presentation on 14-17 November 2024 in the framework of the Dekoloniale Festival 2024.
