Special Agency offers its space (84 sq m) in Berlin – at the beautiful studio house at 3, Am Flutgraben in Kreuzberg – for short-term and long-term residencies.
We will accept applications for work related to Special Agency activities:
- cognitive stimulants,
- venture fiction,
- scalable practices,
- bodymind operating systems,
- constructed identities,
- cognitive reconfiguration studies
The residency is open to people with any background:
- software development,
The main objective of the residency is to create an environment where individuals can
- discover or develop their practice and
- cultivate their principles, methodology and approach.
These residencies are best suited for individuals and groups who are willing to carve out their own niche, be it inside their own imagination, outside in their environment, or both. Our location is perfect for a focused, immersive work that goes deep. We provide
- work space,
- equipment, and
- access to local networks.
At the end of the residency the participants may be offered to bring their practice to life in the frame of Special Agency and Circadian – a publishing house for books on practice. We can also help the participants organize an event, if they feel that it could benefit their work, in order to activate local agents. For example, it may be possible to join the already existing formats hosted by Special Agency: Durational Conference, 3AM Event, Waiting Room, and Practice Festival. Our network of more than 6000+ people includes people from all walks of life and it will definitely may be interesting for to connect with them and work on the future projects.
