That is why a priority for participation will be given to this audience. We hope for your understanding.

With warm regards,
Artist Pilots Team

This topic might be intimidating for (self-)employed arts and culture professionals. In fact, understanding the basics of tax-related matters is not so difficult.

For our next online information session, we invited a tax-advisor to shed light on such matters. Claudia Fuhrmann from Steupro will give an input on the obligations that one has towards the tax office when working as (self-)employed creative and answer your questions around taxes.

We kindly invite you to send your specific questions beforehand, until 03.11.22.
The participation is free of charge. The session is held in German, with consecutive interpreting into English.

For registration and enquiries, please write to: [email protected]

How to pursue writing if you are a literary worker newly arrived in Germany/Berlin? How to best face the challenges of continuing one’s profession in the new socio-cultural context? Where to look for funding opportunities, available support, and existing networks? Our next online information session will explore such questions, with the help of our guest expert, Odile Kennel, who will provide a first orientation in Berlin’s literary landscape.

Participation is free and open to all. The session will be held in English.

Diasporic listening to Berlin’s Soundscape. Radio Workshop

* Applications deadline extension *

There are still places available for the workshop Diasporic listening to Berlin’s Soundscape, at Cashmere Radio, with the sound artist Yara Mekawei.
Please send your applications (CV and a short letter of interest) until Friday, 23. October, 6pm GMT +1, at: [email protected]

With this in person, creative workshop, we invite transnational artists to the premises of Cashmere Radio, in Berlin Wedding, to participate in a collective listening to recorded Berlin soundscapes and a discussion around how experiences of migration inform the way we listen to the city. As a result of this exchange, together with the workshop’s facilitator – Yara Mekawei – the participants will produce a collective work to be broadcasted at Cashmere Radio.
A day before the creative workshop, the participants will have an online discussion with Lukas Grundmann from Cashmere Radio who will give an introduction to the history, structure, and activities of the collective, as well as share his experience of making radio art.
Participation is free of charge and open to transnational artists from all backgrounds. Basic knowledge of an audio software is required.
Participation will be subject to compliance with Berlin’s COVID-19 regulations.

* Yara Mekawei *

Yara Mekawei is a sound artist who mainly works with the (im)materiality of sound and explores how sound informs and transforms visual and sculptural artistic practices. For Mekawei, sound becomes a material source and a physical embodiment of knowledge(s) that animates most of her works, while exploring how sonorousness is a transducer and convergence of time-space relations, as expressed and experienced in African and Arabic philosophies.

* Cashmere Radio *

“Cashmere Radio is a not-for-profit community experimental radio station based in Berlin-Wedding. The ambition of the station is to preserve and further radio and broadcasting practices by playing with the plasticity and malleability of the medium. We do this by both honouring and challenging its inherent qualities: it is both a physical station open to the public and an online radio; it has regular shows, yet opens itself up to extended and one-off events; it features extended generative music performances and installations at the same time as working within radio’s typical durations. In short, it is an attempt to enhance and celebrate the performative, social and informative power of radio that we believe lies within the form itself. The radio can be heard 24 hours a day, seven days a week on our website, and on Friday and Saturdays via 88,4 Berlin and 90,7 Potsdam.”

When research and art come together: artistic research as artistic practice outside the academic context

Date: 10. August 2022
Time: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: Berliner Förderprogramm Künstlerische Forschung, Schönleinstraße 5, 10967 Berlin

We are pleased to announce the first of this year’s events showcasing cultural venues and initiatives in Berlin – their history, activities, and actors.

At the beginning of this event, Rike Frank – our host and the initiative’s Executive Director – will welcome us at the premises of The Berlin Artistic Research Grant Programme and talk about the specificities, aims, and activities of the programme since its foundation in 2020. This will be followed by a visit to the current exhibition: Doireann O’Malley, “Conversations on a Crosstown Algorithm”.

In the second part of the event, we will discuss notions of research and knowledge production in artistic practice to then further explore the field of artistic research – its methods, contexts of production, and funding opportunities. Most importantly, this event centres around and aims to give space to the questions of the participants.

* The Berlin Artistic Research Grant Programme *

“Berliner Förderprogramm Künstlerische Forschung supports and encourages artistic research across disciplines, it fosters the exchange among the fellows’ research community, and brings artistic research into a dialogue with the public. The programme was created in 2020 by the Society for Artistic Research in Germany (Gesellschaft für künstlerische Forschung in Deutschland, gkfd) with funds provided by Berlin’s Senate Office for Culture and Europe.
With this grant programme, Berlin’s Senate is responding to the growing interest in artistic research and the increasing role of art in knowledge and its transfer into society. Whereas in recent years PhD programmes for artists have been established at universities and art academies internationally, the Berlin Programme aims to facilitate research in the arts outside academic qualification programs.”

For further information about The Berlin Artistic Research Grant Programme, please check the website https://kuenstlerischeforschung.berlin

* Rike Frank *

Rike Frank works as a curator and writer, and occasionally teaches, with a special dedication to exhibition history and curatorial practice. She is currently the Executive Director of the Berlin Artistic Research Grant Programme and Co-Director of the European Kunsthalle. Her research and curatorial work is greatly informed by engaging with textiles and textilities, temporalities, and exhibition/curatorial histories. Long-term collaborations with artists run through her practice, such as her current collaboration with the artist Sarah Pierce on her most comprehensive exhibition to date, due to open at IMMA, Dublin in 2023.

This event is in person and will be held at The Berlin Artistic Research Grant Programme’s premises: Schönleinstr. 5, 10967 Berlin. The number of participants is limited to 20 and participation is subject to compliance with Berlin’s current COVID-19 regulations.

The participation is free of charge and open to artists from all disciplines.
To enquire or register, please write to [email protected]

The event is accessible for people with mobility impairments. Participants with visual impairments or blindness can be assisted.

What exactly is the Künstlersozialkasse (KSK)? How to join and how would it benefit me as a freelance artist or publicist. Can I handle another round of tortuous German bureaucracy?

Join us to learn the basics of the German health and social security scheme for artists and publicists in spoken English.

The challenge of writing a successful art project funding application

Date: 16. June 2022

Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Location: online

Sooner or later in an artistic career, one is confronted with the challenge of applying for funding or grants. At least this is the case if you live in a country that offers this possibility. During the next Online Information Session, artists-filmmakers Minze Tummescheit and Arne Hector will share their long-term hands-on experience with writing for projects’ funding in Germany, and in Berlin particularly. They will go through different funding opportunities and their specific requirements and will reveal tools and tactics that they have been using for writing successful art project funding applications. 

We kindly invite you to send us your questions regarding the writing of art projects’ funding applications, until 13 June 2022. This will help us to focus on your area of interest and prepare accordingly. 

Participation in the Online Information Session is free of charge and open to all.

Artist Pilots Mentee 2022: Yara Mekawei

Yara Mekawei is an Egyptian sound artist and scholar based in Berlin since 2021. Yara draws inspiration from the dynamic flow of urban centres and the key infrastructure of cities to create her sonic bricolages. Her research-based artistic practice raises questions about how to intimately connect ideologies of the mythic past with the developed technology of the eternal present.

With the idea of sound being an essential tool of “vision”, an idea central in her recently published in the Arabic language first book, There Are Sounds of the Moving Images, Yara Mekawei explores ways to implement optical transactions from musical conversations, by transferring sound waves to visual forms. She approaches the composition process inspired and informed by ideas from the domains of philosophy, architecture, and social science to shape conceptual messages for the audience. Using such ideas, Yara builds her body of work in a way that generates a continuity, where each art piece is linked to and follows the next. Moreover, her work is informed by her identity and investigate her position of being a woman in an East African society.

Since 2011, Yara Mekawei’s work has been shown and performed internationally in places such as SAVVY Contemporary (Berlin, 2021), SHUBBAK Festival (London, 2021), Rote Fabrik (Zürich, 2019), MEMPHIS Gallery (Linz, 2019), Halle14 (Leipzig, 2019), Dakar Biennial (Dakar, 2018), Fak’ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival (Johannesburg, 2018), Cairotronica festival (2018), Lagos Biennial (Lagos, 2017), and Biennale méditerranéenne dʼart contemporain dʼOran (Oran, 2014), among others.

In 2018, Yara founded Radio SUBMARINE, dedicated to broadcast the diversity of music from the African continent.

Artist Pilots Mentee 2022: Helena Ospina Lizarralde

Helena Ospina Lizarralde is a multi-disciplinary Colombian artist whose
work ranges from ceramics, weaving, and video to performance and
installation. It stands in the intersection of art and philosophy and
explores the interrelationship between the natural world and human
existence.

Through her artistic practice, Helena is interested in generating
questions that depart from personal inquiries and subsequently create a
space to trigger the spectators’ own explorations.
In her current ongoing research, she addresses the fundamental notion of
time by reflecting upon possible relationships with it and the way human
existence has been determined by a social understanding of the concept.

In 2021, Helena took part in the GlogauAIR Residency Berlin where she
developed a participatory artwork in the city’s public space - “Why are
we here Project”- a continuing initiative that has so far received 500
email answers.
Realising that there are scarce opportunities to support conceptual art
projects in her home country, in in the same year, Helena Ospina
Lizarralde decided to move from Bogotá, Colombia, to Berlin, Germany to
pursue her profession as an artist. Her decision to move to Europe was
also motivated by the desire to deepen her artistic research in relation
to philosophy.

Artist Pilots Mentee 2022: Gülşah Mursaloğlu

Gülşah Mursaloğlu is a visual artist working with installation. Her body of work is research-based and is centred around notions of materiality, matter’s agency, and human and non-human temporalities. Through her installations of ephemeral nature, Gülşah is interested in creating dynamic and fluid systems. Her recent projects investigate the shift in potato temporalities in the past centuries, terrestrial sequences, and the ways in which humans voluntarily and involuntarily eat/devour/consume the earth.

Gülşah Mursaloğlu has exhibited her work internationally including at “Hosting Bodies”, Sanatorium, Istanbul, Turkey (2021); “Once Upon a Time Inconceivable”, Protocinema, Istanbul, Turkey (2021); “3rd Industrial Art Biennial”, Labin, Croatia (2020); “Material Play”, Salisbury University Galleries, Salisbury, USA (2019); “YFD 10: One Must Continue” Zilberman Gallery, Istanbul, Turkey (2019); “A Notation, for Every Crossing”, poşe, Istanbul, Turkey (2019); “An Internal Garden”, Depo, Istanbul, Turkey (2018); “Artificial Life”, Chicago Artists Coalition, Chicago, USA (2018).

Some of the recent artist residencies Gülşah participated in are SAHA Studio, Istanbul, Turkey (2020); [email protected], Oisterwijk, Netherlands (2019); Istanbul Biennial Production and Research Programme, Istanbul, Turkey (2018-19), and Oregon College of Art and Craft, Portland, USA (2016).

Gülşah Mursaloğlu holds a BA in Sociology from Boğaziçi University in Istanbul and an MFA degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

“I moved to Berlin in 2021 to broaden my artistic interests and seek new creative opportunities in an international environment. Considering the deteriorating economic and political circumstances in Turkey, it was proving more and more difficult to tackle the financial precarity as a creative practitioner there. Now, I am hoping to develop my artistic practice in a more sustainable manner and to form new collaborations in the vibrant art scene that Berlin offers”.
