PHASMID Studio, Berlin

PHASMID STUDIOS GbR, founded in 2015 by Paul Greenaway and partners, is a new cultural complex that provides the opportunity for artists and researchers the experience of working and living in the enriching city of Berlin.

Situated in an old GDR administration building, in a quiet semi-industrial area at the border of Lichtenberg-Marzahn (Berlin) on 3.000 sq. metres of land, the residential studios offer working and living spaces for international artists. Twenty minutes from the centre of Berlin, on the old stock exchange road, the building holds three permanent and five temporary studios – each with generous workspaces. PHASMID aims to generate an environment that is both stable and in flux, where collaborations and connections between artists of various disciplines and other art professionals are possible and can be made.

The VCA in association with Art + Australia has underwritten one of the studio spaces, and makes the studio available to artists, curators, writers and researchers with a connection to the VCA.

Residencies are generally available February to April, May to July, August to September and October to December. Please direct any enquiries to art-australia@unimelb.edu.au

From 2016–2018, the VCA Phasmid Studio has been supported with state funding through Creative Victoria.
