Topic: Paper – Light – Shadow
Paper Residency ! Is aimed at visual artists who either already have experience with sculptural paper work, or who have an idea or a concept for sculptural experimental paper art.
The aim of Paper Residency ! is to inspire visual artists to work freely and be experimental with paper.
The artists are offered a studio atelier (in Berlin with digital interface of high-end technology in the form of 3 Canon IPF-Large Format printers and the finest hardware; in Munich an oversized guest studio of whiteBox.art in the centre of a big cultural and creative hub), and of course Hahnemühle Paper. All scholarship holders in Berlin and Munich are free to experiment with the papers during the process of sculptural paperwork. They can print on them, tear or cut them, braid, burn or even eat them – anything is possible.
Many creative brains should be inspired and be able to draw on the full potential of paper.
A total of 4 residences will be awarded for the summer of 2020. For these residencies d’mage, Hahnemühle, Canon Germany and whiteBOX.art are cooperating.
The Paper Residency ! offers:
- 2 weeks inspiration in Berlin or 3 weeks in Munich
- 100 sqm studio atelier with balcony and garden and Canon IPF-printers in Berlin
- 167 sqm oversized guest atelier of whiteBOX.art and more than 4m of clear height

- Paper, paper, paper (up to 70 sqm of Hahnemühle FineArt papers, including other papers from our portfolio)
