Artists who use clay as their primary material and focussing on contemporary ceramic art, are able to apply. There is no age limit anymore. For 2017, 10 artists will be awarded fellowships to reside at the centre.
For 25 years now, there’s the artist house “Stadttöpferei”, based in the historical city centre of Neumünster, northern Germany. It is run by the Dr. Hans Hoch Foundation as a special place for art and artists, focused on ceramic art in all its facets. The institution is evolving constantly and is characterized by numerous ceramic artists who have lived and worked here. Activities include regular exhibitions and workshops in the gallery or the International Ceramic Symposium, which took place here in 2010 for the first time. In future it will be possible to enabling more artists to live and work in the residence house, due to the new internationally announced program “Ceramic Artist in Residence”. This program opens dialog on contemporary positions of ceramic art, intercultural exchange, as well as experiments with materials and audience.
The studio space is open to the public during the day, artists are requested to be present and avaliable for visitors giving them an insight into their creative process. At the end of the residency, a final public presentation in the form of a lecture, workshop, exhibition or performance focussing on the work produced at Stadttöpferei is expected.
