Artists and curators working in the field of contemporary art are invited to apply for a residency at Het Wilde Weten, Rotterdam, from December 2018 – February 2019 (3 months), or May 2018 – August 2018 (4 months).

Het Wilde Weten is an independent artist-run initiative in Rotterdam, providing artist studios, a public platform for contemporary art and an Artist-in-Residency program. The residency provides Dutch and international artists the opportunity to live and work in a studio-building amongst 16 artists. The residency program promotes cultural exchange by connecting parallel practices. Rotterdam has a vibrant art scene with many artist-run initiatives, galleries and exhibition spaces.

Het Wilde Weten is located in the heart of Rotterdam, the main museums and art centres are easily reachable on foot. On the first floor the guest artist of Het Wilde Weten has access to a 30-sqm studio that is furnished with a chair, loft bed, refrigerator, wardrobe and a large table. There is a private shower and shared toilet adjacent to the studio. Downstairs is a shared kitchen, on the second floor there’s a coffee corner. The guest artist has access to a bicycle and internet connection. Due to fire safety regulations they can only accept individual artists living in the building.

The organizers will provide support for the guest artists in connecting them with artists, curators or other agents working in their field. With that in mind the guests are asked to give an artist talk introducing them to the Rotterdam art scene and fellow HWW-members. These artist talks are often organised in cooperation with other Artist in Residence programs in Rotterdam. Upon request an exhibition/event in the 80 sqm exhibition space of Het Wilde Weten is possible (this is not included in the fee).

Costs of the guest studio at Het Wilde Weten are €375,00 per month. Het Wilde Weten can provide a letter of invitation on request in order for you to apply for funding. Email the following to
