Beyond Desire

The non-profit organization ACC (Autonomous Cultural Center) originated in
1987, before the fall of the Berlin wall, when students occupied a
derelict Renaissance building in the center of the town where Goethe
(inevitably) had had his first residence in Weimar (1776/77). Shortly
before the reunification, ACC protagonists were able to secure the house
with the aid of private sponsors. The institution now consists of a
gallery and a café and offers a cultural program that includes theater,
literature, and lecture series.
The studio is located in the historical Städtisches Atelierhaus (Municipal
studio building), about ten minutes walk to the ACC Galerie Weimar in the
town center. In addition to the visiting international artists, the
well-lit studio building accommodates ten other Weimar artists.

ROOM AND BOARD: Rent-free furnished apartment in the Weimar Atelierhaus
with telephone/answering machine and DSL internet; meals are available at
ACC Café-Restaurant at reduced prices (70%).

PARTICIPATION: Artists who would like to produce works of art in
accordance with the outlined theme can apply.

The jury will select three artists, each of whom will spend four months
living and working in Weimar. Student’s applications cannot be accepted.

DISPLAY AND EXHIBITION: The ACC Galerie Weimar employs a curator who
develops a conception and a publication together with the artists. During
the residency the curator will decide together with the artists whether
and how the selected work(s) will be presented at the ACC Galerie Weimar
in 2010. Where appropriate, works of art will be displayed in public
spaces in Weimar for time periods to be agreed upon with the artists. In
case of a group exhibition of all Studio Program participants a small
catalogue will be produced. It is intended that the artists are present
during the preparation and for the opening of the exhibition.

ACC COLLECTION: The former participants of the program left one or two
important works of art completed during their stay in Weimar to become
part of the ACC Galerie Collection. It is up to the future participants to
