One of the most renowned residence programs is offered by the DAAD - Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (www.berliner-kuenstlerprogramm.de). In the section for artists a commission proposes invitations for internationally acclaimed artists. Therefore no direct applications are possible.
The Bethanien (www.bethanien.de), a house for artists founded in 1974, offers an
international studio programme with duration of 12
month. A jury decides on the participants. No direct applications are
possible here either.
Other, usually smaller residence programs, that are open for applications are realised by District (www.district-berlin.com), ZK/U (www.zku-berlin.org), Takt Kunstprojektraum (www.taktberlin.org) or Glogauair (www.glogauair.net).
