Performatywny Magazyn. Artist Residency Program

Performatywny Magazyn. Artist Residency Program

We announce call for entries for “Performatywny Magazyn” Artist Residency Program. The idea of the  Program is to create an autonomous zone for visual and performance artists under 35 from Poland and abroad.

The Museum offers space for work and meetings with the recipients of the Program, the possibility of consulting a qualified team and experts cooperating with the institution, and promoting the project implemented within the Residency. The Artist-In-Residence is expected to be creative, open to creating interdisciplinary projects and cooperation with the local community, as well as respecting the mission and vision of the Muzeum Śląskie.

The series of Artist Residency Program is supposed to enable young artists to gain new experiences by carrying out projects that creatively reinterpret the theme suggested by the Museum. It intends to broaden the cultural competences and sensitivity to contemporary means of expression among the recipients of the Program.

The aim of the application process is to select original designs creatively interpreting the “Industrial Panorama of Silesia theme”. The thematic scope of the suggested actions should refer to the industrial spaces of Silesia interpreted in the context of a historical region (including the territory of Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic), with particular attention to changes related to the industrial development in the 19th century and modern views on post-industrial heritage.

We will be particularly interested in projects involving discourse with the past, re-reading the industrial heritage, discussing the subject of place or locality remembrance. The proposals should include activities in the field of visual arts, in particular video-art, multimedia projects and site-specific art, as well as performative artistic activities of participatory nature.

Deadline for submitting proposals for projects together with the attachments is 15.02.2018, at 23.59. The works should be sent to: m.czerny@scenografia-polska.pl. Please find all of the details in Terms & Conditions below.
