Organisation:

Eligibility:

Cruce, Space for Transformation is an initiative intended for professionals who need to disconnect from their daily rhythms, those who need a space to create, hold workshops, events or exhibitions, focus on analysis and dissemination of their work; or just make a temporary withdrawal.

Surrounded by nature, the rural environment of Blanca allows one to enter the traditions and customs of a town in southern Spain, as well as being in coexistence with an artistic community.
Cruce is a program designed to bring together resources, spaces and knowledge. It facilitates the encounter between people of different origins, trajectories and ideas, with the common interest of being part of a temporary and caring community and of sharing experiences and knowledge.

AADK Spain is an artist-run platform that currently has its headquarters in Centro Negra (Blanca, Murcia) where it develops various programs. It advocates for the decentralization of culture and access to contemporary art in non-urban areas. We have created the program Cruce, Space for Transformation to broaden the spectrum and invite a wider audience to benefit from what our platform has to offer.

The Cruce Program began at the end of 2020 and has hosted more than 50 creators from Spain, Europe and beyond since then. It received artists from various disciplines including painting, photography, sculpture, installation, sound art and performance, and also some participants working outside the artistic field. They have been part of our beautiful temporary communities, sharing time and spaces with each other and with the participants of our Residency Program.

Duration of residency
Those interested may choose any of the possibilities we offer for a period between 2 weeks and 2 months. In the case of one-month periods, the participation starts on the 1st of the first month and ends on the 30th of the last month or starts on the 16th of the first month and ends on the 15th of the last month. In case of periods of two weeks, the program starts on the 1st and ends on the 15th of the month, or starts on the 16th and ends on the 30th of the month. There is a possibility to combine one-month and two-week periods.

Montemero Art Residency- Open Call for Interdisciplinary Artists in an Ecological Hub, Summer 2022

Eligibility:

Montemero Art Residency 2022 – An Interdisciplinary Ecological Hub for Arts

Montemero Art Residency is an organization dedicated to sustainable ecology and alternative art production. We believe that the experience of living and creating in a different context has to be facilitated through collaboration and exchange. Thus, we opened our facilities to artists for them to network and collaborate with professionals from other fields.

The Program

Our program offers a fully-equipped printmaking studio, and other open spaces that are suitable for a variety of creative practices (from visual to performing arts and anything in between). Being located on a biological reserve near the Tabernas Desert, the location offers a unique perspective that aims to cultivate the personal connection with nature and how it functions, while further expanding the idea of eco-living. With minimal external interference, artists-in-residence have the opportunity to focus on themselves and their work in a way that more densely populated areas are unable to provide. The residency is open to people of all ages and backgrounds, and we welcome all those who are looking for space and time to explore new forms of interdisciplinary and intercultural collaboration.

Although, our long-term objective with this program is to create an eco-art project, here are some of our short-term goals:
• To create an environment and offer the facilities conducive to creative work, integrated with nature, a place to experience new perspectives and acquire new references.
• Promoting international collaboration and networking, to bring together people from different fields to share and promote ecological and cultural sustainability.
• Embrace and emphasize the experimental, undefined, and unexpected states of creativity.

Duration of residency

1 to 3 months

Accommodation

Artists will have their own private room and there are plenty of spaces both indoor and outside to create and be inspired. All activities at the residency are arranged in the community with the host(s) who are using the property in the time being. This also applies to living arrangements such as cooking meals and keeping tidy. Fundamental courtesies apply.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance

The residency is open to people of all ages and backgrounds, and we welcome all those who are looking for space and time to explore new forms of interdisciplinary and intercultural collaboration. We cannot provide specific materials for artwork. The residency is in a rural area, so we recommend artists to travel with their own materials. Some basic materials/high-quality papers are provided in the printmaking studio, but anything further/specialized will need to be acquired by the artist prior to the residency. Materials located in the scrap yard are free to be used by artists. Depending on your practice we might be able to provide some materials for a small fee (prior notice is required). Feel free to reach out to us to discuss your production process and needs.

Studio / Workspace

Montemero was the former atelier of German artist Wolfgang Simon. Wolfgang Simon studied from 1957 to 1962 at the Berlin College of Fine Arts. Simon practiced as an apprentice of Friedrich Schröder Sonnenstern. Since the late 1960s to his last days, he lived in Andalusia and dedicated his life to the conservation of this land, forming the Finca Montamero Biological Reserve while continuing his work as a printmaker. As such, he equipped his studio for woodcut, linocut, and letterpress printmaking. During the residency, artists will have access to this studio and his archive. Outside areas can be used for their creative practices, and salvaged materials in the scrap yard will be open to artists’creation 

Fees and support

This is an artist/curator-run residency. Sadly we do not have the funding to support artists financially at the moment. The fees are there to function as a residency, not to profit, covering 40% of the total costs of participation in the program. €850 participation fee for one full month (4 weeks). This fee will go towards rent, utilities (Wi-Fi, gas/water/electricity, cleaning supplies, etc…), upkeep of the facilities, administrative tasks, and consultations. In return, the host also offers bikes (limited) and snorkeling and diving equipment. The fee also covers a pick-up and drop-up from Jaravia train station or San Juan de los Terreros bus station. Please note: If you are selected as one of our participants, you will be required to deposit 40% of the fee within 10 days of your acceptance to secure your place. Artists should cover their travel costs, daily expenses, and the cost of production of personal works beyond supplies provided by the residency. We cannot provide materials for specific artworks. The residency is in a rural area, so we recommend artists to travel with their own preferred materials as art supply stores are non-existent. Feel free to reach out to us to discuss your production process and needs. We do our best to ensure guests’ safety at all times, but we cannot take responsibility for personal illness, injuries, or accidents. Nor can we take responsibility for lost, stolen, or damaged personal belongings. Please make sure you have adequate travel and health insurance prior to travel.

Expectations towards the artist

Throughout the program, participating artists will have a chance to incorporate new mediums and disciplines into their practice. Salvaged materials in the scrap yard will be open to artists’creation and interpretation. This process will be supported with weekly online/video chat feedback sessions, individual portfolio reviews, and brainstorming sessions with our curator. In order to increase community engagement and gain experience, we also encourage artists to create and hold both public and private workshops regarding their practice and to join other events that are organized by Finca Montemero. Other events can be organized by the residents, within the bounds of possibilities of the organizers.
