Application

The call for applications for 2023 fellowships will run from September 27, 2021 until December 1, 2021.

Every year since 1963, around twenty internationally recognized cultural producers of all ages who have developed a distinctive creative practice and have already produced a substantial body of work in the field of visual arts, film, literature, or music have been invited to spend twelve months living and working in Berlin. Invitations to filmmakers are issued for six months.

The residency is not a grant to support cultural producers who are still studying or have recently graduated. Candidates in the field of visual arts are nominated and selected by an expert jury; for this reason, applications may not be submitted in this field.

An invitation to participate in the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program is one of the most sought-after fellowships in the world. Due to the exceptionally large number of applications for the limited number of fellowships available, many highly qualified applications cannot be considered; this in no way represents a negative evaluation of the applicant’s artistic practice. Previously unsuccessful applicants may reapply at a later date.

There will be three requirements for a valid application:

1) a completed contact form
2) a completed application form
3) work samples

Detailed information on the current application process will follow shortly on this page. Please use only the current forms that will be available here as of 9/27/2021. Until then, we kindly ask to please refrain from inquiries about the process.
