VISIT Residency 2022
The energy programme is a collaboration between E-WERK Luckenwalde and the artist-in-residency programme of E.ON Stiftung. This year, E-WERK Luckenwalde was added as a new partner with a special focus on sustainability and the green transition.
The JUNGE AKADEMIE supports international artists from all art sections of the Academy of Arts with residency and work grants. The three-month studio residencies offer the scholarship holders time, space and resources to focus on their art in a new environment. The program creates an open space for artistic research, the production of art and knowledge, which is actively designed by the different years in cooperation with mentors and members of the Academy. It is part of the Academy's self-image to preserve this freedom and protection of artistic expression and exchange, experimentation and encounters across political and cultural borders.
The E.ON Stiftung is the corporate foundation of the energy company E.ON. Its goal is to help shape the energy system of the future. In doing so, it has society as a whole in mind and focuses on social innovation and people's participation. In a fair, open and networked process, the funding projects provide space for critical reflection on the transformation process. This creates the basis for offering, testing and implementing new approaches to solutions. Since 2010, the artist-in-residence programme VISIT has invited artists to realise projects that relate to the topic of energy and its social relevance. The aim of the programme is to initiate a reciprocal dialogue between business and art.
