Slavs and Tatars’ residency-mentorship program is designed for artists, curators, researchers, and scholars from the collective’s Eurasian remit (Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, and Central Asia). A fully-equipped one-room studio apartment, contiguous to the Slavs and Tatars’ working space in Berlin-Moabit, is available for residents for a period of 2 months.
What makes the program unique is the confluence of theory and practice; discourse and production. Residents split their time between their own practice and a mentorship program, which is incorporated into Slavs and Tatars’ collaborative practice and various activities: from research and production, design and archiving, events and press.
During their stay, each resident is invited to conceive of a public presentation to take place at Slavs and Tatars’ Pickle Bar, an event and project space cum aperitivo bar a few doors down from the studio.
