Buenos Aires






Crossed by the current context, we think in the necessity of researching the possibilities of the artistic work, bounded by the social distancing provisions we look for alternatives of coexistence through the artistic activation of our Shop- Window. Different voices have drawn our attention to the increasing vigilance and control by the state and society in general.

Instructional Residency is proposed as an artistic device of visibility and reflection on the current context and its consequences, based on the appearance in the public space in a situation of isolation / social distancing due to the pandemic. Using the space of a commercial showcase beside the street, Belgrado’s Shop-Window becomes a device of aseptic exhibition, isolated from the viewers, the passers by that walk the Belgrano Avenue in the City of Buenos Aires.

We invite artists to send their proposals to carry out their work remotely in the Belgrado’s Shop-Window. The proposals will be sent as instructions, and Casa Belgrado team will carry out the works based on the artistic instructions of the selected proposals, (subject to) the human and technical resources of the space.


Site Specific, transdisciplinary transit between contemporary performing practices, performance, movement, theater and its possible expansions, to sound, multimedia and audiovisual art. We embrace intersections and experiences in hybrid formats of composition and presentation close to the idea of post-discipline.

Social isolation – body – home – virus and pandemic – control and surveillance devices – posthumanism – interior- exterior – dystopian futures.

The selected projects will have three encounters via zoom before the realization of the piece-instructive:

  1. -General presentation
  2. -Technical and artistic direction meeting
  3. -Technical and artistic tunning

Important considerations:

The residency has no cost for the artist

The pieces will take place totally inside the Belgrado’s Shop-Window

The exhibition of the pieces can last between 3 hours and 4 days

The access of the public to the Shop-Window will not be allowed

The costs of necessary materials and additional resources are the responsibility of the artist.

The realization of the pieces includes the audiovisual recording of them and their divulgation on social media

All details and incidentals not mentioned in this convocatory will be resolved in dialogue with Casa Belgrado’s team.

The human and material resources will be available for the proposals

The proposals will be received until july 31

The selected projects will be announced the first week of August.

The selected projects will be exhibited during 2020. Doubts and queries to

Shop-Window Residency




Open Call - The Belgrado Shop Window Residency 2020 - 2021

Crossed by the current context, we think about the need to investigate the possibilities of artistic endeavors, limited by the provisions of social distancing, we look for alternatives of coexistence through the artistic activation of our Shopwindow.

Located on Belgrano Ave. in the center of Buenos Aires, in an area with high vehicular and pedestrian traffic, close to squares, supermarkets, hospitals, subway stations and trains, The Belgrado Shop Window has a high flow of people that pass in front of it daily, even in this context.

The glass window of a former furniture store today serves as an exhibition space and contemporary art studio. The Shop Window is thought of as a device for experimentation, intervention and dialogue with the territory, a window into the public space, which, enhanced by this particular context, results in a device capable of generating micro-encounters with the passers-by.

In response to the communication that the Argentine government has had projecting the resumption of international flights for September 1, 2020, we call on artists of all nationalities to participate in the residences that our space offers from that date.
