Residency for a female writer, video artist or composer/sound artist

The Pfaelzer Hof is inviting applications from female writers, video artists and composers/sound artists to creatively reflect on and interpret the perspectives from the windows at the Pfaelzer Hof, Germany. The building is unusual in its floor plan which is trapezoid in shape, which means there are perspectives from its many windows in every direction, making it a metaphor for plurality.

The third floor apartment (the Atelier), where the selected artist will reside, has ‘twelve windows’ which encompass views of the urban environment, railway viaduct, hillside church, historic castle, surrounding hills, natural woodland and dramatic skyscapes and soundscapes.

Recently US artist Joanna Tam created a series of photos and video works in response to our original ‘Twelve Windows’ call. Her film ‘Wasenstrasse Story’, shot on the streets surrounding the Pfaelzer Hof, was recently selected as a semi-finalist at a film festival in Chicago.

The neighbourhood, once traditional and quiet, is currently in a state of flux, with a changing and growing immigrant population from across the world.

Expectations towards the artist

Staying in our Atelier apartment you will study, meditate and reflect on the twelve different vistas, asking questions in your own medium as to what it is that you see, perceive and interpret. We are keen to host artists who will take this opportunity and use the support on offer to create a new body of work. We like to share in your ideas and thoughts from the beginning and help you to develop new work. This may be work in progress that you can take away with you and develop further at home. We believe in the creative process and this is an opportunity that is well supported.
