YOU WANT TO BE IN BERLIN FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME?
YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO STAY, TO WORK AND MAYBE TO PRESENT YOUR PROJECTS?
The “Everything is Possible” Residency is the ANSWER!
This international residency enables MFA students and PhD candidates in Art History from the University of Illinois at Chicago to activate their creative process and research by working in the city of Berlin, and in dialogue with a peer from the Hochschule für Grafik and Buchkunst Leipzig Included in the residency is a spacious work and living space in Berlin at the Institut für Alles Mögliche, a public exhibition at a local gallery, and a public talk in Leipzig. Students from both cities have the opportunity to work in dialogue with one another, collaborate if desired, and compare and contrast their practice and scholarship in Berlin, one of the most vibrant places for the arts today. This residency provides an outstanding experience for students to connect with an international art scene, and meet peers from another University.
The Institut für Alles Mögliche (Institute for everything that could be possible / Institute for random stuff) runs several tiny art spaces in Berlin and Leipzig, creates projects and offers free space to artists from around the world to collaborate and visit Berlin for a while.
This project can be understood as an artistic concept, an organism, an attitude, an idea on how artistic collaboration and social gathering could look like. Its shape correlates to the people who cooperate within its framework, to the team that organizes it, to the residents that come visit and all its friends, followers and collaborators. Being a part of the I-A-M sphere means participating in an art work, interacting in ongoing processes and unfinished test arrangements and actively shaping the Institutes appearance.
