The Fact Finder Residency Programme in Berlin / Winter 2018-2019

From the 10th of October 2018 to the 10th of January 2019, The Fact Finder organises a self-directed residency for artists or curators whose work is based on research.
Theme of the residency: fact-finding. Field research / immersive journalism / flâneur-ism / archiving / voyaging / storytelling are examples of the processes we regard as fact-finding missions, among others.

Studio
The selected resident will have access to a studio space for three months in a well-known art and gallery district of Berlin (Schöneberg), In addition to the working space, we offer the possibility of presenting the results of the residency in a form of a final exhibition or a talk event.

The studio-facility has a total area of 50 sqm, (two rooms) with an additional storage area, bathroom and utilities. The space is not a live-in studio. The residents are recommended to arrange for their own accommodation, travel and insurance while in Berlin.

Duration
The three-months self-directed residency programme is opened to both curators and artists, for new research or for production based on the results of a prior research.
Period: 10 Oct 2018 - 10 Jan 2019

Exhibition / Presentation of results
The final residency exhibition will take place over a one-week duration (within the residency period). Alternatively, the resident may sustain a short presentation of results in a form of a talk.
Support offered during residency: the resident will receive support from the space manager, interns and help with the organisation and promotion of the final exhibition.
