HIER & JETZT: Connections (HUJ:C) is an exchange and residency program at B.L.O. Ateliers – Lockkunst e.V. in Berlin, organized by artists for artists. The project calls upon international artists in exile who live in Berlin and seek a place for artistic production. The initiative HIER & JETZT: Connections defines exile as the involuntary loss of one’s social context and working environment in their country of origin for an uncertain period of time.

The project is complemented by a series of lectures, workshops, and discussions held by artists, experts, and researchers in order to create a space for dialogue, mutual learning and understanding.

Successful applicants are invited to work at B.L.O. Ateliers in Berlin for a period of three months.
Additionally, a budget of 500 € is offered to each resident or group for production costs.
