Krakralutcha Residency

Krakralutcha Residency


Studio Complex & Hangarrrrrr is formed by two artists’ initiatives, located in two large, neighboring hangars in Enschede, the Netherlands. The complex of ateliers is used as semi-open workspaces for a group of 26 artists. Furthermore, the initiative is a platform for cultural events, such as Zuiderfestival, exhibitions and concerts.

Adjacent to the building of Studio Complex & Hangarrrrrr there is large piece of wasteland. This wasteland has developed over the years into a green area (forest, field, bushes) mixed with remains of concrete foundation. The municipality of Enschede offered them to manage this area. Since then they have developed a public garden Krakralutcha. Part of this garden consists of vegetable gardens where local residents are invited to adopt a garden. The other part of the garden is a sculpture garden under construction. Sculptures in the garden are created by the artist in residence. For this purpose a tiny house was designed and constructed by two artists from their collective: Reinier Kranendonk and Luuk van Binsbergen. The house is located within the sculpture garden, such that the artist can live in the space and experience the environment for which he/she will create an artwork.


They expect the artist to create an site-specific artwork for the sculpture garden which has a clear connection or is inspired by the environment. Besides it should be suitable and sustainable for exposure to various weather conditions for the next 5 years. The artwork will be presented during the annual art festival Zuider Festival 25-27 Augustus, and they expect the artist to prepare a small presentation for this event.

Accommodation Information 

The tiny house is a 6x3m one room house with a cooking facility, a shower and toilet, a bed and electricity. It has a small veranda with roof with a view on the sculpture garden.

Studio Information 

The artist can work in the common workspaces in Studio Complex & Hangarrrrrr. There is a basic wood and metal workshop. It is also possible to work directly at the location (i.e. in the garden), an electricity point is available providing both 220v and 380v electricity.


The residency is located in the city of Enschede. The area is within the city, but large enough to experience the outside/nature atmosphere.
