Culturia Arts Residency in Berlin Germany

  1. About

culturia comprises both a unique artist in residence program and evolving collection. The primary focus of culturia is to support and develop a deeper reflection on art by artists and scholars. culturia is a place for exchanging knowledge, sharing ideas and aesthetic strategies.

The culturia residency program is based in Berlin. Since 2005 culturia has continued to expand and develop its relationships with artists and arts organizations. It began as residency program hosted in temporary spaces in Berlin, developing into a residency with a permanent address and a focus on exploring artistic processes and theory.

The purpose of this residency is to provide fellows with a space and network needed for further development of their practices focusing on the research of artistic process. culturia creates a dynamic intersection between Berlin-based and international artist and researchers.
