The Watch

residency program in the former GDR watchtower at Schlesischer Busch, Berlin.
with Chris Gylee, Dominique Hurth, Lydia Hamann, Clement Layes
since 2016

The Watch consists of a group of artists and cultural producers that inhabits the former GDR watchtower on Schlesischer Busch (Berlin-Treptow) during the summer months, in the formats of residencies, semi-public events, screenings and talks. The former watchtower has a long tradition of cultural and artistic production ever since Reunification, yet, in recent years, the building has become a place for reflection rather than mere production: artists, writers, choreographers, and other thinkers have been invited to spend time within and around the tower to consider the building’s texture, its history, its future, as well as its present position within Berlin’s cultural and political landscape.
