One of the founding ideas of Artists Unlimited is to have a guest studio integrated in our house. A space in which an international artist / designer can live and work for 3 months. So far, more than 100 artists and designers from all over the world have received this opportunity.

We offer a studio space (40m²) which is located next door to a private appartment (32m²). Inside, there is a sleeping area,
a kitchen, washing machine and Wi-Fi.
The residency space is located on the first floor of our building, which used to be a paper factory 30 years ago. The studio and the apartment are private, though our guest artists share the floor with two neighbours who also have their private appartments there. Artists Unlimited pays for the monthly rent and grants of 600 Euro a month. Travelling expenses have to be paid for by the artist, though.

By the end of the residency, we encourage all of our guest artists / designers to use the opportunity to present their work in our gallery space.
