Art is ²Residence


The ELEVEN Art is ²Residence is an international residency program for artists - located in Starzach-Börstingen, Germany. It is a self-administrated non-profit organisation. ELEVEN artspace wants to create an environment for inspiration – a place for artists where they can concentrate on their work, can experiment and play. The residency program offers combined living and working spaces with private bedrooms for 1, 2 or 3 persons. By special arrangement there are various other spaces which can be used: a large communal studio (about 80m²), several smaller work rooms, a workshop, a small performance space (about 90m²), and in certain situations there is the possibility of using a large room / gymnasium with stage (about 400m²) for meetings, performances, etc. On the school grounds there are further opportunities: large walls, fields and forests, the Neckar valley and the river itself.


Artist talks can be organised.
