Open call: Temporary studios offered
Deadline July 15, 2012
Duende is looking for people interested in a temporary studio. Duende is a self-run and independent, artist-run cooperative housed in a former school building that provides circa 45 studios where independent artists, designers and architects carry out their work on a professional basis.
Duende has the intention to function as a platform, providing space and opportunity for local, national and international practices to meet and influence the local circuit through the actual artistic practice. As a cooperative, Duende is looking back on a 25-year history with a broad range of activities and manifestations. Duende is also running a guest studio program, providing three large studios with a separate living space, available for foreign artists for a period of three months, and a smaller space for curators and critics. Duende cooperates with other comparable artist-communities as well as local institutions such as TENT., CBK, Piet Zwart Institute, and others such as museums and galleries.
Temporary studios are regularly available for new candidates. The rental price for this studio is circa 230 euros for 60 m2 / €300 for circa 90 m2, prices are incl. BTW.
Candidates who want to apply for a studio at Duende do need to show that they clearly have a professional and active practice, and that they want to be engaged and prepared to initiate activities. They also need to have a Dutch BTW (tax) number, be actively supportive towards the ambitions and aims of Duende and if and where possible, contribute to these aims. For tasks such as running the organization, maintenance, board members, accommodating the guests, and other activities, Duende continuously needs its members to actively contribute and initiate. Be aware that candidates without a (personal) Dutch BTW number will not be able to apply; no exceptions can be made!
Interested? Please send relevant documentation material (only digital (!) portfolios’ or material will be accepted, publications and / or dvd’s in case of videowork) plus CV, BTW number, and contact details before July 15, 2012.
