"Kudos to all involved in making the Berlin Residency into a reality. I am very proud of our San Antonio leadership in the arts to have seen this outstanding opportunity for the city's artists and have acted on it. Thanks to everybody's efforts, the four chosen artists will be able to expand their horizons, gain expertise and connections on an international scale, while, at the same time, becoming ambassadors for our city in Berlin, a city to be seen as the most important contemporary art capitol at this juncture in time."

-Dr. Angelika Jansen


Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum, the City of San Antonio Department for Culture and Creative Development, The University of Texas at San Antonio, Palo Alto and private sponsors such as Guillermo Nicolas are pleased to announce the selected artists for the Berlin residency program at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, a non-profit organization that has earned a worldwide reputation for its International Residency Studio Program.

Each of the four selected San Antonio artists will attend the residency program for 3 months at a time, beginning this summer. The projects of the institution's artists are publicly presented in the Künstlerhaus' exhibition venue.

The Künstlerhaus Bethanien, a non-profit arts organization in Berlin, Germany, boasts an esteemed international studio program started three decades ago. Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum has been invited to participate in this prestigious program thanks to the liaising efforts of Dr. Angelika Jansen. The Künstlerhaus Bethanien actively promotes the dialogue among artists of various disciplines and nationalities, whose work it presents to the general public in a professional environment. The wide range of services offered by the Künstlerhaus Bethanien is devised to assist its residents in developing and creating their works of art.
