SÍM / International Residency Program 

SÍM Residency is an international residency for visual artists located in Reykjavík, Iceland. It is run by SÍM - Samband íslenskra myndlistarmanna or The Association of Icelandic Visual Artists.

 

SÍM is a non-profit organization without any operating state grants. Currently, SÍM is hosting three locations; Hafnarstraeti where the SÍM Gallery, Office and Guesthouse are located, and two residency apartments Seljavegur, which is a 10 minute walk from the city center, and Korpúlfsstaðir, situated on the outskirts of Reykjavik.

Frá árinu 2010 hefur SÍM haft gestavinnustofu í Berlín til leigu fyrir félagsmenn SÍM. Hugmyndin er að íslenskir myndlistarmenn geti dvalið erlendis og unnið að list sinni á sama hátt og erlendir listamenn koma til Íslands í gestavinnustofur SÍM. Gestavinnustofan er á fimmtu hæð í fjölbýlishúsi í Neue Bahnhofstrasse 27, í Friedrichshain í austurhluta Berlínar, póstnúmer D-10245 Berlin.

Gestaherbergin eru tvö, Askja og Hekla, en gestir deila eldhúsi og baðherbergi. Aðeins fimm mínútna gangur er frá Ostkreuz lestarstöðinni að gestaíbúðinni, en S-9 fer beint frá flugvellinum Berlín Schönefeld (SXF) til Ostkreuz.
