The Luminary Residency Program. Deadline: Sept. 15, 2017

Applications Open for 2018 Residencies

As a leading artist-run and artist-centric space, The Luminary supports exceptional ideas and initiatives by providing dedicated time, considered collaborations and a supportive working environment through our Residency Program. The program is open to all artists, performers, curators and critics, but uniquely supports the research, development and presentation of work that utilizes innovative forms and unconventional structures such as alternative spaces and economies, publications and writing, archives, collaborations, artist-led projects and experimental institutional practices.

Though open to all applicants, particular attention for 2018 will be given to the theme of New Constitutions: Commoning the Institution. For the year, we invite proposals that rethink the relationship between the individual and the institution, asking questions such as: How does an artist, art writer, performer or curator reshape an institution’s practice, its publics, or its politics? How do economies of care and collaboration reshape the institution? How do we work past the individual economies of the art world and advance new conceptions of the commons? Participants may propose to alter our administrative procedures or physical environment; propose new uses of space or initiate other spaces within our own; rework our public relations or intervene within our online presence; or thoroughly reimagine how we relate with artists and circulate within the art world.

In 2018, The Luminary will accept twelve residents in three phases: April and May; June and July; and September and October. Residencies are two weeks up to six weeks in duration and each resident will receive stipends, spacious private accommodations, shared studio space, and connections with local artists, curators and galleries. Each resident is expected to work towards an exhibition, publication, institutional collaboration or other public program during their residency.

Applications are due September 15th, 2017 for residencies taking place throughout 2018.

To apply, please fill out the online application.

Bauhaus Residence. Deadline: September 6, 2017

 

In the 1920’s the Masters’ Houses in Dessau became the epitome of an artist community of the twentieth century. This is where Walter Gropius, Oskar Schlemmer, Georg Muche, László Moholy-Nagy, Lyonel Feininger, Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee and their families lived next door to each other. Here they were joined by their friends and visitors. Artist collectives, artist couples and artist friendships developed here, with everyone working together in the open structure of the model homes located in a park. However, when the Bauhauslers left in 1933 the area became deserted and the work created as a result of the artistic effort was abandoned.

Since February 2016 the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation is enabling young international artists to once again live and work in the Schlemmer house – even if the restrictions of the perseveration of cultural heritage attached to the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site are very strict. With the new format the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation would like to promote the current focus of attention on the Bauhaus heritage, revitalise the Masters’ Houses and in this context promote artistic and creative work of international significance which will then at the end of the residency period be displayed in the Gropius House until the Bauhaus anniversary in 2019.



Participation conditions

The programme is catering to artists with an overall interest in all those areas that are historically being represented by Bauhaus and that have developed from it until today: painting, design, textile, architecture, sculpture, photography, film.

Please appreciate the fact that the Open Call is not open to students. Teams are welcome.

Application (German or English):
Please apply using the application online form

We require the following information from you:

  • Your career development
  • A list of your previous exhibitions
  • The actual project that you will be working on during your stay at Bauhaus. This should be related to Bauhaus (approx. 2 pages). The project should also be tied to the Foundation’s annual topic in 2018 “Standards”. (Here we are looking at a survey of standards existing in building, living, life and works of art. How do we deal with measurability, rules and standards? How can we get off the beaten track of standards in the field of art? What influence does art have today on how we perceive standards?)
  • A motivation
  • An artist’s portfolio

Applications in paper or other formats will not be accepted and will therefore disqualify the applicant.

Categories

First PhotoBook

  • A book in which the dominant content is photography, featuring the work of one or more photographer/artist,* produced in physical form, and available for purchase or distributed free of charge, whether via trade distribution, print on demand, a gallery or online outlet, or otherwise. (“Virtual” or electronic books that exist only in digital form are not eligible for entry at this time.)
  • A book that is the first by the given photographer/artist is eligible for entry, whether a first self-published book, a first limited-edition book, a first gallery-published collection, a first book made available by print on demand, or a first book published by a publisher for release in the book trade. A first book published by an established publisher is eligible for entry even if the photographer/artist previously released a self-published book or a limited-edition book for distribution outside the trade. However, once a photographer/artist has had a book published by a mainstream publisher in the book trade, a subsequent book (whether self-published or not) is not eligible for entry
  • Books must be produced or published between September 1, 2016, and September 13, 2017. Books produced before September 13, 2017, but not due for release or publication until a later date in 2017, are also eligible.

PhotoBook of the Year

  • A book in which the dominant content is photography, whether authored by more than one photographer/artist* or authored by an editor, produced in physical form, and published in an edition of no less than one hundred copies.
  • Books must be produced or published between September 1, 2016, and September 13, 2017. Books produced before September 13, 2017, but not due for release or publication until a later date in 2017, are also eligible.
  • Entries for either award may only be submitted by the photographer/artist, the publisher, or a third party acting with the consent of the photographer/artist.

Photography Catalogue of the Year

  • An exhibition catalogue or museum publication in which the dominant content is photography. Catalogues can feature the work of one or more photographers/artists, should be produced in physical form, and available for purchase or distributed free of charge, whether via trade distribution, print on demand, a gallery or online outlet, or otherwise
  • Text-only publications are not eligible, however, catalogues can include extensive research, writing, and analysis—whether dedicated to the oeuvre of a single photographer, or an exploration of a collection based in photographic history and practice
  • Catalogues must be produced or published between September 1, 2016, and September 13, 2017. Catalogues produced before September 13, 2017, but not due for release or publication until a later date in 2017, are also eligible.

*Books by or featuring the work of more than one photographers/artists are eligible in all categories.

Juror information

The awards will be judged in two stages. An initial jury will meet in New York to select the shortlisted entries in both categories. The final winners will be decided by a separate jury that will meet in Paris immediately before Paris Photo begins. The initial jury will include representatives of both Paris Photo and Aperture Foundation, and the final jury will include neither.
Each award winner will be chosen from the juried shortlist, all of which will be exhibited at Paris Photo. The fall 2017 issue of The PhotoBook Review (published by Aperture Foundation) will feature all of the shortlisted books. Following their display during Paris Photo, an exhibition of the thirty shortlisted books will travel to Aperture Gallery in New York and may be exhibited at other venues.
