DE-CONSTRUKT develops projects with local and international artists that support the cross-pollination of ideas and experimentation among culturally diverse artists and audiences. Artists have the opportunity to produce new works individually or collaboratively, with a focus on experimentation. Our interest is in the process rather than the final outcomes.
Live, work and engage with the local community of Red Hook, Brooklyn at our studio DE-CONSTRUKT. Share a beautiful spacious loft with beautiful skylights, a photography darkroom, art book library, wet sinks, and event space. Private fully-furnished bedrooms, one with a separate private studio.
We provide artists with a place to live, work and engage with other artists and the local community of Red Hook, Brooklyn. The loft is equipped with a B&W photography darkroom, wet sink, modern kitchen, art book library, rooftop access with Manhattan skyline and lots of natural light. It also includes accessible on-street parking, access to a large studio for public events and fully furnished live/work studios.
The residency program started in 2013. We have hosted artists from Europe, North America, the Middle East, and Asia. Some examples of projects include painting, music, video, public interventions, installations, workshops, film screening. We also invite writers, researchers, and curators to apply.
All participants must either make a public event in Red Hook or work with the neighborhood directly. Please note two-week residencies make it difficult to organize events due to the short time frame.
Residency fee for two weeks is $675 for a private bedroom with a large studio (1 person). Residency fee must be paid in full before arrival. Artists are responsible for all expenses including supplies and travel. Artists can request work exchange for partial coverage of the residency fee, only if available.
