Residency at the Ammersee
January 2021 – September 2022
The former farm in Inning close to the Ammersee is available to the Kunstverein München to accommodate artists, cultural workers, writers, researchers, and critics of all practices through September 2022. The residency aims to provide a space for the participants to probe communal forms of production and assymetrical togetherness, and thus to question the conventional logics of labor as well as social reproduction.
Peripheral Alliances considers itself as an organization of shared infrastructures of artistic production beyond its geographical location and is interested in methods of commoning as a counter-model within a highly competitive art landscape. The intersections of this collaborative network enable the exchange of emotional as well as material resources. The residency is intended to serve the actual needs of those who inhabit it, and not the utopian concerns that are conceived with it: a desire for relational modes of solidarity (Adamczak, 2017) emerges and becomes a catalyst for community.
The residency enters its second iteration in 2022. The list of participants is extended this year by Lou Drago, Frances Drayson, Manuel Falkenhahn, Nina Kettiger, marie lea lund, Sophie Paul, Alice Rekab, Matthew Richardson, and Mahsa Saloor.
The residency Peripheral Alliances is a cooperation between Kunstverein München and Euroboden. Euroboden is planning a new building on the site with around 150 open-use studios and communal areas. The modular building by the architect Muck Petzet will be completed in 2024.
