Awarded a scholarship for a one-month residency at Residenzflicht, an artist-in-residence project in a modular housing program for refugees in Berlin, in the summer of 2020.

"In their project RESIDENZPFLICHT, the artist group msk7 is awarding ten grants for one-month residences in Berlin refugee shelters to international artists. For the years 2019 and 2020, five artist-in-residence projects will be realized from May to September at a total of ten locations in Berlin. The programme aims to use a diverse spectrum of artistic positions to temporarily open up the self-contained refugee shelters to approaches and developments in contemporary art. Everyday points of contact between artists and refugees should stimulate an exchange of culturally different ideas and views on site and beyond the accommodation’s boundaries. Regardless of the location, which at first may appear unusual, access to contemporary art is understood as a social offer; the realisation of participatory art projects with refugees is not the main focus.

For the art project, ten Modular Accommodations for Refugees (MUF) in Berlin will be extended alternately and temporarily by an additional mobile module – a construction trailer converted into a habitable studio. This serves as a living and working space for the scholarship holders and is connected to a housing unit, whose sanitary facilities and communal kitchen are used. The experience of each scholarship will be shown through a blog, an artist talk and a closing event on site. Each scholarship is endowed with a fee component of 2,000 euros and a maximum of 1,000 euros to cover the cost of material and travel expenses. A mandatory residence requirement will apply."
