artists in residence 2022
With the Hausmuseum in Jüchen-Hochneukirch Inge Broska, founder of the museum, has created a place where the specific history of the region of the Rheinish open-cast mining area is preserved materially and immaterially. With the collection of found objects from her hometown of Alt-Otzenrath, and her own artistic work, a living archive has been created.
As a living archive that refuses to be structured, the personal practice of remembering, commemoration, finding and storing as well as the appropriating of narratives raises questions about the collective memory of the region.
The Hausmuseum creates an informal, non-institutional venue of local historical reflection as part of the cultural life of the region. The Hausmuseum invites the scholarship holders to engage with these conditions and realities.
Founded in 1992, the Hausmuseum has since been the center of life and work of artist Inge Broska. Since its relocation in 2006, it has been located in Jüchen-Hochneukirch.
The Hausmuseum gUG was founded in 2021 on the initiative of seven cultural workers with the aim of not only preserving the house and its collection, but also of maintaining it as a public cultural venue in the spirit of its founder.

For the Borderland Residencies, the Hausmusem has created two “pop-up residencies”. These temporary residencies offer artists the opportunity to live in and experience an environment that on the one hand is exemplary for the Rheinish open-cast mining area, and on the other hand a living, artistic archive.

Along with the socio-spatial conditions of the small towns and villages in this rural area, the Hausmuseum finds itself in the midst of a constantly transforming environment in search of narratives of its own history, identity and a future to be shaped by structural change. The Hausmuseum perceives of itself as a possible point of departure and reference for dialogue and exchange. It offers starting points for artistic practices and research.
In 2022, the pop-up residency will provide an apartment at nearby Gut Stammheim in Gierath. Artists based nearby are provided with a mobility-grant to able to work on-site in a flexible manner, be it by means of individual or public transport.
