Germany | Field Kitchen Academy

Artists and creative minds with an interest in sound, loop, contemporary and interdisciplinary creative practices are invited to apply for the Field Kitchen Academy. Ten residents will be selected to join the upcoming FIELD KITCHEN ACADEMY between 15 August - 8 September 2020.

Curated by Ece Pazarbasi, the second edition of the Field Kitchen Academy will be realised under the title of The Curious Loop. During 3,5 weeks, the Field Kitchen Academy will host public events (the Field), closed working sessions (the Kitchen) and conceptual cooking actions in Wüsten-Buchholz, Perleberg; 1,5 hrs away from Berlin.

The applications are open not only to those with an artistic background, but to all creative minds who have an interest in sound, loop, contemporary and interdisciplinary creative practices.

With three modules, the residents will have the opportunity of pursuing processes of experimentation, discussion, trial and error, progression of knowledge, know-how and creativity together with Sebastian Mullaert (aka Minilogue), Bill Fontana, Hans Peter Kuhn, Ove Holmqvist, Hans Rosenström, Prof. Ursula Koch and Zen masters Sun Wo & Ji Woo during the first 3 weeks. The last half week will be the ‘simmering’ period where the residents are expected to do NOTHING.

Applications can be made for Module #1 plus Module #2 (Module #3) for the entire period (960 Euros) or only for Module #1 for 1 week (490 Euros) or only for Module #2 for approximately 3 weeks (760 Euros). The participation fee covers accommodation for the entire period, 3 plant based meals (breakfast, lunch, dinners, plus tea time snacks) every day, the program fee for the entire working sessions and participation in the public program.

All are encouraged to apply. The tentative application deadline is 22 June 2020; successful candidates will be contacted by 6 July 2020.

Selected participants are responsible for their own travel costs and pay a fee depending on the modules taken. The Field Kitchen Academy offers 1 (one) scholarship to a successful applicant selected by the Jury. The scholarship covers the entire residency fee for Module #3 (between 15 August - 8 September), including the expenses for accommodation, meals and attendance to public events. Travel and subsistence costs are not included in the scholarship.

The Field Kitchen Academy is focused on sound art - artists and creative minds from different fields (visual artists, performers, dancers, DJs, architects, chefs, etc.) are strongly encouraged to apply to foster interdisciplinary collaborations.
