°Ceramic Artist Exchange – Tandem 2018

Artist in Residence 2018 for ten artists, focused on contemporary ceramic art, each one month long.

Since 1987 there’s the artist house “Stadttöpferei”, based in the historical city centre of Neumünster, northern Germany. It is run by the Dr. Hans Hoch Foundation as a special place for art and artists for contemporary advanced ceramic art. The institution is evolving constantly and is characterized by numerous ceramic artists who have lived and worked here. Activities include regular exhibitions and workshops in the gallery or the International Ceramic Symposium, which took place in 2017 for the second time.

Due to the new internationally announced program “Ceramic Artist in Residence” that started in 2013, we offered the opportunity for young artists to live, work and exhibit at the residency house free of rent. This residency program were focused on dialog on contemporary positions of advanced ceramic art, intercultural exchange, as well as experiments with materials and audience.

Since 2016 there is the first time no age restriction and the exchange of different generations of artists is now central to the program „Ceramic Artist Exchange – Tandem“. For 2018, a jury will award 10 residencies to live and work here.

The resident will be provided with basic materials and free electric kiln firings during the course of the residency. The studio space is open to the public during the day, artists are requested to be present and available for visitors giving them an insight into their creative process.
