Call for entries: 2015 BMW Residency at Musée Nicéphore Niépce

Residency 2015: from Monday 7th September to Friday 27th November 2015
Deadline: Wednesday 15th April 2015

BMW values the importance of aesthetics and technological innovation, and supports photography as an original, distinct art form. The Group is strongly rooted in France, including in Chalon-sur-Saône, so the partnership with the Nicéphore Niépce Museum was a logical choice.

This unique, ambitious cultural partnership, set up in 2011, offers an artist’s residency program. Over the past years, the work of the first three prize winners has been showcased to photography professionals and the wider public.

BMW is supporting the entire process from creation to production, culminating in the unveiling of the finished works at the Rencontres d’Arles and Paris Photo, and the publication of a book and and a video illustrating the creative process and the universe of the winning photographer.

Atelierhaus Prenzlauer Promenade | Benefiz-Kunstauktion

BenefizKunstauktion des Atelierhauses Prenzlauer Promenade zur Gründung eines Fonds für die visionäre Projektentwicklung

Unser Protest für den Erhalt des Atelierhauses in der Prenzlauer Promenade und die große Aufmerksamkeit und Sympathie die uns 2014 zu Teil wurde, haben etwas bewirkt. Der Senat prüft zur Zeit, ob das ca. 20.000 qm große Areal als Standort für ein zukunftsweisendes Modell aus studentischem Wohnen, Kindertagesstätte und Künstlerateliers dienen kann. Wir begrüßen diese Entwicklung und hoffen, dass das Moratorium und die Zeit des Nachdenkens in ein echtes Umdenken münden. Wir, die Künstler des Atelierhauses im Plattenbaustil, das von uns liebevoll „Gemischte Platte“ und visionär „Kunstmaschine“ genannt wird, möchten die Chance, die sich momentan abzeichnet, nutzen und uns konstruktiv in die Debatte über die Zukunft des Areals einbringen.
