OPEN CALL! Application for an exhibition participation in 2018/2019

The GEH8 Kunstraum und Ateliers e.V. is a non-profit association for contemporary art in Dresden. Founded in 2006 by artists, architects, designers and urban planners it is located in a former wagon repair shop. Today the building hosts 11 studios as well as an exhibition hall in which art exhibitions, concerts, workshops, symposia, screenings, performances etc. take place. GEH8 is self-managed by artists and funded by the public hand.

We realize exhibitions with international emerging artists together with works by not yet established artists. For this reason, we invite artists to apply for a participation on our 2018/2019 exhibition program. Artists of any age are welcome. We are open to all subjects, media or fields of visual art. However, our focus is on installation, intervention, video, performance, sound art and media art.
