Brief description of residency program

KuBa: kulturbahnhof
Art Residency: A place of motion and emotion

KuBa:kulturbahnhof is located on the site of a former station on the Berlin–Hamburg railway in the town of Klein Warnow (Brandenburg). We offer artists and writers of different genres a space to work and to experiment. The interaction with this unique location is an essential element of the project.
KuBa: kulturbahnhof is an independent, artist-led and non-profit project. With our "Artist&Writers in Residence"- we want to create a particular programm for inspiration, dialogue and cooperation, open to the the challenges of our time.


Vision:
For us, a train station is also a place of motion and of emotions, arrival and farewell, a place of joy and longing. Like art, it forms the cutting edge between the private and public spheres. KuBa: kulturbahnhof is an artist led initiative without public funding.
Our vision is to create a space that inspires one´s own work, but at the same time invites to interact with other people and the place itself.
KuBa: kulturbahnhof is still a young project that is constantly developing with the visitors to the residency. We call for artists, writers, and persons engaged in any other field of the cultural sector to contribute to this process with their inputs and ideas.


Artist & Writer in Residence:
The one month residency starts with a one-day methodical training on self-organization and on the specification of your personal goals that you want to achieve during your stay. If necessary, a single coaching can be arranged.
Exhibition or project presentation at the end of the stay are possible depending on the situation.


Accommodation:
You each have a private living area. Each apartment is about 50 sq m, with a bedroom, a workroom, a private bathroom and a small kitchen.
In addition, a shared studio, a furnished workshop and a larger outdoor area with a permacultur garden is available.
The entire site is listed as cultural heritage and may be designed but not damaged.
