Goethe-Institut Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines together with SAVVY Contemporary and TanzFaktur are looking for three-month residency applications in the visual arts and the performing arts.

As Germany’s international cultural institute, Goethe-Institut promotes cultural collaboration worldwide, encourages intercultural dialogue, and enables cultural involvement. Focusing on shared artistic production, reception and reflection, the Goethe-Institut Southeast Asia initiates and co-organises this residency platform to connect, to exchange ideas, to collect impulses, to work in a new cultural context, and to draw on a variety of new inspirations.

REFLEKT residency programme encourages the artists/curators/art practitioners in residence to expand their research, develop a concept/prototype, build a project, or create an artwork together with the hosting organisations and local communities. Ideally, after completing the residency, the residents would continue their work and present them in their city of origin with the local Goethe-Institut as a host.

This year, the programme offers in total four slots for artists, curators, and art practitioners to work and engage with respective art scene and public in Germany for three months with the following preferred hosts:

  • SAVVY Contemporary (Berlin) | 2 September–29 November 2024
  • TanzFaktur (Cologne) | 2 September–29 November 2024

Each host has a different profile and requirements, but all require applicants to work and live in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Timor-Leste.

The Goethe-Institut will cover the costs for airfare to Germany (return, economy class), visa and travel expenses for visa appointment, travel insurance, as well as accommodation during the residency. Artists will receive a lump-sum of fee and daily costs of 3,000 EUR for the whole residency and a subsidy for production/research 600 EUR.
