The DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program is one of the most renowned residency programs for international artists and cultural practitioners in the fields of visual arts, film, literature, and music & sound. Each year, it awards residencies in Berlin to around twenty outstanding cultural producers. The residency enables the chosen fellows to focus on their creative thinking, actions, and research pursuits without being obliged to produce.
Since its founding in West Berlin in 1963, the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program has made a significant contribution to the internationalization of cultural production.
Previous fellows include Taqi Akhlaqi, Shadi Habib Allah and Fariba Vafi.
