The referendum of May 2009 has cleared the way for the long-term usage of the PROGR building as an atelier house. The PROGR foundation bought the building from the city of Bern and offers workspace for local artists to favorable conditions. It is in this optimal framework that residency.ch was founded in 2011 by artists as a non-profit association.
Our goals are:
• to invite visual artists for work residencies
• to support international cultural exchange
• to initiate an outward orientation within the cultural centre PROGR
• to establish networks with artists and artist centres outside Bern
Foundation year: 2011
Director(s): Peter Aerschmann (Co-President) / Sophie Schmidt (Co-President) / Laura Gáti (curator)
