Mobile AIR (Artist In Residence) is a non-profit program that will enable artists from Germany and abroad to realize site-specific field research projects and exhibitions. It offers a new, flexible and mobile platform for artistic research and creation.
Currently I am building the house, aiming to finish the main functions and features by the end of summer 2018.
This Berlin-based residence studio is very small, measuring only 6,5m2, making it very flexible. It will be off-the-grid, and can be transported to specific sites and parked for short or long periods of time. The artist-in-residence can therefore realize site-specific projects at places that might otherwise be difficult to access for longer periods of time. Unlike other residencies, which are generally tied to specific locations, Mobile AIR enables artists to choose the site of their residences. Mobile AIR aims to accommodate the artist’s needs, and not the other way around. Since the house is so small, every piece of the interior will be carefully considered. A lot of the furniture is foldable, some is expandable, and some can even completely disappear from view.
Depending on the house’s particular location where it is placed, the house can either become an isolated workspace or, alternatively, a very open room, linking directly to the public.
All projects realized in Mobile AIR will be presented and exhibited at the end of each residency term. The idea is to not only offer space to artists, but also to create a space for connection, open workshops, creativity, participation, conversation and exchange with the public.
The residence is open for artists working in all fine arts, as well as artistic research, bio-art, environmental art, art journalism, photography, performance, dance, music, and literature. Residencies can last from one week up to three months.
