Residency at the Ammersee
January 2021 – September 2022
The transdisciplinary artist residency Peripheral Alliances is a place where the participants have the opportunity to meet, work, and stay. The residency forms an alliance in the periphery of Munich and provides the residents with the space that is missing in the city, because it is already occupied or simply not affordable. The former farm in Inning close to the Ammersee is available to Kunstverein München to host invited artists until September 2022. Distant, but not detached from the existing architecture of the Kunstverein, the residency, Peripheral Alliances, offers a shift in perspective and opens up artistic dialog beyond the city.
The concept draws on dynamic forms of production as well as togetherness and is interested in collaborative exhibition formats. The residency is meant to serve the real needs of those who inhabit the space and not the utopian needs that are designed with it: a desire for modes of relationships and solidarity (after Adamczak, 2017) emerges and becomes a catalyst of community. Thus, democratic (self-) organization as part of artistic practice is at the center of the collective work within the format. The intersections of this collaborative network enable the exchange of emotional, spiritual, and material resources.
