We are looking for 4 artists from the Arab world and from Europe to engage in a 2-week residency in Brussels (Belgium). The programme is composed of 2 sessions, from which the selected participants can choose a preference: one in March 2022 (14-27.03.22), and one in May 2022 (16-29.05.22).
The residency programme focuses on prototyping, experimenting, and exchanging ideas with fellow artists from different backgrounds. The participants will be given access to iMAL’s infrastructure as well as its Fablab, which philosophy is centered around knowledge sharing, DYI culture and open source communities. Artists will be invited to work alongside iMAL’s team, with a shared goal: to produce and experiment autonomously, building on each other’s expertise. Therefore, artists will receive a basic support but are expected to have a minimum knowledge of available machine use.
This visual arts residency programme is part of the project Halaqat organised by the Goethe-Institut together with Bozar - Centre for Fine Arts Brussels and co-funded by the European Union.
Deadline for the application: 21 Oct.’21.
