Within the partnership between MISK ART INSTITUTE (MISK) & BERLIN ART INSTITUTE (BAI) in the BAI Residency Program, currently artists Ali AlmusaSaeed GebaanAziz Jamal & Ziad Kaki take part in Block 12: CW 45 – 48 = 11/08 – 12/03/2021 & Block 13: CW 49 – 52 = 12/06 – 12/31/2021 of the BAI Studio Program.

BAI and MISK have agreed to build a collaborative partnership supporting international residencies for arts professionals. In the spirit of an intercultural dialogue, exchange and incubating springboard between Saudi Arabia and Germany, the vision is that through the young and dedicated emerging as well as mid-career contemporary artists, curators and critics the participation would entail sustainable and long-term networking of both institutes for future collaborations.

After the Open Call among Saudi citizens organized by the MISK ART INSTITUTE, MISK provided a shortlist of finalists. Two groups of six mid-career contemporary artists working in the fields of visual & contemporary art have been selected for a fully funded residency at BAI taking place in the fall and winter of 2021.
