The Nordic Guest Studio in Malongen, Stockholm, Sweden.
The Nordic Guest Studio is a spacious studio with accommodation located at Nytorget in Södermalm, a nice and lively area in the center of Stockholm. The studio flat is roughly 100 m2 with a generous studio/space suitable for studio work, research, collaborations, etc., and for hosting public events, workshops, screenings, and exhibitions. In addition, the flat also accommodates a kitchen good for socialising, a relaxing living room furnished with a large comfortable sofa, a fully furnished bathroom equipped with a washing machine, and an airy bedroom furnished with two single beds. The studio is equipped with Wi-Fi and essential technical equipment such as a projector and loudspeakers. Family members may accompany the residency guests.
The building, dating from the 1680s, has a cultural-historical value and was initially built as a textile factory accompanied by gardens. Today Nytorget is an urban area, and in the hands of the city, the building has undergone restorations to be used as emergency housing, a hospital, and a primary school. Since the 1960s, the premises have served as artists' studios, today housing about twenty studios for artists.
Address: Nordisk Gästateljé, Malongen, Nytorget 15 A, SE - 116 41 Stockholm, Sweden.
The Nordic Guest Studio is run by the Swedish Section of the Nordic Art Association. Its collaborators are institutions, galleries, art schools, art organizations, individual artists, and curators from the region applying for residency guests whom they are working with and want to invite for a residency stay in Stockholm.
The application process is open once a year during September (Sept. 1st - 30th) for the following year. The selection process is made by the executive and the advisory board, which consists of professional artists and curators working in Sweden and internationally. The selection is announced by the end of October, and the selected guests and projects form the base of NKF's program for the following year.
