A support program for artists who fled to or are exiled in Germany.

The Common Ground Studio is a support program for artists who fled to or are exiled in Germany. It offers access to the Institute of Fine Arts at the Berlin University of the Arts to people interested in studying fine arts. Each participant will be given the opportunity to take part in one of the specialist classes (Fachklasse) as a guest for one academic year – from October 2021 to mid-July 2022.

Participants can use this time to prepare their portfolio for the formal study application, better understand the fine arts program of the UdK, meet the students and professors, as well as develop their own artistic practice.

All artistic practices and disciplines are welcome. Please only consider applying if you can guarantee regular attendance and participate in meetings multiple times per month. Otherwise, you might be taking a spot away from someone who is ready to commit and could use our guidance during the study application process at UdK or another art university.

To apply, please send us the following:
1. A personal letter describing your motivation, your interest in the Common Ground Studio, and
anything else you think we should know.
2. PDF digital portfolio with a minimum of 5 works and a maximum of 15.
3. A CV or a document with your personal information and contact information.

Send applications to:
Please write in the subject field: Common Ground Studio

Deadline 01.09.21
