The ‘Passage’ AiR programme sees itself as a space that wants to give artists access to the region of the Dübener Heide. We would like to pass on the diversity that this region unites and inspire artistic work by means of thematic focuses. The artists can use the stay for research and/or work in a results-oriented way. It is planned to carry out a total of four AiR residencies in the period from 2021 to 2022. The duration of one AiR residency is 4 weeks. During this period, the artists will live and work in the Dübener Heide region. There is an obligation to be present.

Since the Kultur- und Kunstverein Kemberg e.V. would especially like to promote exchange between children, young people and established artists, it is desired that a workshop or excursion for young people be led by the artists. The form, content and scope of the workshop / excursion are freely selectable.

Welcoming artists to the Dübener Heide as part of the ‘Passage’ AiR programme also means sharing our curiosity about the guests with residents of the region. We value cultural exchanges of experience and would like the artists to offer insights into their work to date to a public audience in the context of an artist talk.


The NEXT CALL FOR PROPOSALS will be published in January 2022.

We encourage applications from artists who would like to explore new themes and the region of the Dübener Heide through a temporary residency and additionally try out familiar or unusual working methods in a site-specific way. The artists will be selected via an informal application by email. A minimum age of 18 years is required for participation in the application. There is no age restriction. There is no charge for the application. The artists will be selected by the Kultur- und Kunstverein Kemberg e.V. and external jurors from the cultural and art sector. The jurors will be announced on this website.
