Petrohradská kolektiv z.s.


As of 2016, Petrohradská kolektiv annually invites up to ten artists from all over the world. Residency project proposals are submitted through open calls, which are then selected by a specialized committee. Residencies are finished up by the artists presentation and an exhibition project or other cultural activity. The direction is to provide space for foreign artists in Prague, let them approach local contemporary art scene and provide a space for cultural exchange. The residency provides a working and living space for the artist to freely move around. There are three selected studios for residence use only, accesible workshop with tools, a full studio, recording studio and a yard. The resident artist will be granted a living space in an individual room of an apartement shared by other artists on location.

As there are many local artists constantly moving around the complex and the cafe, the foreign artist can be met with plenty of opportunity for social and artistic interaction. The Artist In Residence programme is directed at independent foreign artists who brings a specific project, or are simply interested in expanding their horizons.

The location where Petrohradská kolektiv is based was erected in Pragues Vršovice district by 1903. Built as a mill and a bakery for Hedivka and Karel Müller. By the end of 1920 the structure was rebuilt to house the manufacturing of chocolate goods by Korda ltd. The building was last used by an assembly workshop of Industrial Automation Plants (ZPA). Currently the building is to be demolished. In the meantime, since 2015, it's being used by the association to produce a cultural programme and a platform for young arts. Aside from the 36 studios that provide spaces for over 200 artists over the course of their operation, the space has a multifunctional room, photo studio and recording studio, Jedna Dva Tři Gallery and a base for resident artists. By the beginning of the year 2019, Kafe Petrohradská opened in frontage of the building.
