Deadline: 5 August 2013

As a part of every human culture (and religion), the “politics and pleasures of food” are an expression of ideologies and societal relations, the level of development or decay of a civilization. Their potential as a community builder and group event, as well as their function in social distinction are part of evolution. You are what you eat, and thus what and how we feed ourselves not only depends on prevailing conditions, but also has an effect on them.

Within the framework of the exhibition The Politics and Pleasures of Food (September 21 – November 17, 2013), the HALLE 14, centre for contemporary art, will be awarding a residency fellowship to a visual artist. The programme invites artists from around the world to work for three months (September 1 – November 31, 2013) in Leipzig, Germany in a studio at the world-famous Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei.

Applicants are encouraged to propose process-based and performative projects that are fitting to the exhibition theme and to the residency period, which will be concurrent with the exhibition. However such projects are neither a requirement nor a guarantee for the success of the application. Not the medium, but rather the quality of the proposal will be the deciding factor for the jury of independent art experts.


The fellowship recipient will receive a monthly stipend of 1,000 Euros, a one-time material fee of 500 Euros, travel expenses up to 500 Euros, a studio space, and a flat.


To apply send by post or email the required materials:

  1. The completed application form (available here)
  2. A text describing the proposed work in connection with the theme.
  3. A CV with an overview of education, exhibitions and projects.
