Dogo Residenz is a place where people live and work together. Those involved take responsibility for their actions, address problems and give constructive criticism. All forms of discrimination such as racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, anti-Semitism, ableism, classism, ageism or body-shaming are not tolerated in Dogo Residenz. The team takes sufficient rest and makes sure that their activities in the company correspond to the available physical and psychological resources and that lower abilities to take stress are respected.
Dogo Residenz treats material resources with care. Both in the artistic productions in the studio and in everyday life in the residency, the participants take care to use energy and water efficiently and to recycle materials. Up to a travel time of twelve hours, the participants travel to and from the residency by train (guideline).
Dogo Residenz is committed to social, cultural and artistic diversity. The jury, half of which consists of external experts, selects cultural workers from home and abroad in an annual selection process. The selection criteria and expectations of Dogo Residenz are decisive. The team accompanies the selected artists in their process.
Dogo Residenz reflects on their privileges, exclusions and barriers to access and orients its work towards its mission statement. The team focuses on the differences and commonalities of structural disadvantage in order to create equal opportunities. Outside of operations, the team takes time to work on the structures and processes in the organisation. It conscientiously deals with the feedback from the residents and implements it in the operation.
