Because of Libken having no ongoing institutional funding, most of our guests organize the financing of their residency by themselves. From time to time, we can invite people through funded programs for a paid residency (#takeheart Residenzstipendium, Kulinarikstipendium, Stipendium für Kunst und Umwelt). When this is not the case, we irregularly publish open calls for A ROOM OF ONES OWN | Libken Raumstipendium - which equals a free stay of a week or two in one of our studio apartments.
The core of Denk- und Produktionsort Libken is a four-story residential complex located on the outskirts of the 80-inhabitant village of Böckenberg, in northeastern Brandenburg. Like many similar dwellings constructed in times of the GDR, the building was doomed to demolition due to vacancy. Since 2014, it has gradually been converted to its new use with the help of friends and supporters.

Today, Libken is offering space to artists, thinkers and activists of various fields. Apartments of different shapes and sizes can host large groups and individual residents alike. Especially in the warm seasons, the spatious garden invites to work outside, where our guests find tables and a canopied platform for yoga practice, open-air-cinema and alike. A multi-purpose studio separate from the house can be heated with wood and used as exhibition space, dance studio or conference room.
The call for A ROOM OF ONES OWN | Libken Raumstipendium is published irregularly depending on the availability of our studio apartments. Artists, thinkers and activist from all fields can apply by describing on one page what they would like to do during their time in Libken and why they need a room of their own.
Applicants will be informed within few days about the choice of the invited resident.
