The OT301 residency space is located on the 3rd floor of the main building. It’s a cosy place that is divided into two sections. A bedroom and a studio with a small kitchen. All modestly equipped.
The total size of the room is 42 m2 - the bedroom is 14 m2, and the studio is 28 m2. Place is fully equipped for living needs, there is most of the kitchen stuff and most for the sleeping part. The shower and the toilet are shared facilities in the hallway of the building.
Important to note: The building can be noisy sometimes and it’s part of the building and its living and working conditions.
EHBK / OT301 is an artist organization in Amsterdam, exploring the possibilities to open up our main building by hosting a residency program in one of our studios.
OT301 is located in the former filmacademy next to the Vondelpark at Overtoom 301. It was originally squatted in 1999, then bought in 2007. There is a venue, a cinema, a gallery, a culture-kitchen, a recording studio, a theater-studio and a body-lab as well as people living and working in their studios.
With this residency program OT301 aims to
Use the residency program as a social experiment to gather more external and objective knowledge about the ins and outs of the organization.
Open up our building even more to an (inter)national network of socially and politically engaged people - develop a continually evolving organic residency module for temporary participation in our collective organisation: development is shaped by the residents.
