Visiting Curators

Open call to all Bremen artists

Visiting Curators 2019

All Bremen artists are invited to apply for a studio visit by an internationally active curator!

Visiting Curators enables Bremen artists to meet and exchange ideas with foreign curators. The aim is to network Bremen artists with curators and to give them professional feedback on their artistic work through individual discussions in their studios (or in a room at Künstlerhaus Bremen). Five internationally active curators are invited to visit Bremen artists in autumn 2019. They were selected by curators from Bremen's contemporary art institutions (Kunsthalle Bremen, Weserburg, Städtische Galerie, GAK and Künstlerhaus Bremen).

Visits will take place between 5 and 7 November 2019.

Guest curators are Dr. Monika Bayer-Wermuth, Dr. Sven Beckstette, Anja Casser, Luisa Heese and Natasha Marie Llorens (12 and 13 November).
