Commitment: 
Full-time
Description: 

• Do you have a background in the arts? 
• Are you able to communicate coherently in spoken and written English?
• Do you posses good interpersonal and organisational skills to work as the Key Accountant for our artists and partners?

As an intern you will be part of the preparations and installations of the different exhibitions in the gallery as the responsible curator and need excelent writing skills.

You will play an active role in the process of finding new artists for future exhibitions and assist at cultural events in the gallery. You will also act as the Key Account for artists to give them the best service possible. It could also be that you arrange their stay when artists are in town. When we get new artworks or collaborate with new artists, you will be responsible for our inventory list, which gives the full overview of the artworks the galleries have in Kettinge and in Berlin.

We expect that you:
-Have a knowledge of the German, Nordic and Scandinavian cultures
-Have very good English language/writing skills; German language skills would be an advantage
-Have a strong background or interest in the arts
-Have strong interpersonal skills
-Have very good organisational skills

We offer you in Berlin: An independent and interdisciplinary internship in one of the most exciting cities in Europe. You will get a chance to use the theories you have acquired during your studies within an international team.

We offer you in Kettinge: An independent and interdisciplinary internship in a beautiful Danish countryside close to the sea and just 2 hours from Copenhagen. You will get a chance to use the theories you have acquired during your studies within an international team and be part of developing further our residency + gallery activities.

We look for: Highly motivated, open-minded team players with both independent and collaborative working skills.

The duration of the internship is 3 – 6 months (September – December) and/or (March– July). As the gallery is non-profitable, the internship will be unpaid. However, our internship is suitable for an Erasmus+ grant application at your home university. The interns’ different areas will often overlap, meaning that you will have a great influence on the strategic planning regarding the gallery’s future and you will have the freedom to start new projects in the gallery.

Compensation: 
No financial compensation
