ART ⇆ TERRITORY RESIDENCIES NETWORK OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTIC RESEARCH RESIDENCIES

Country:

ART ⇆ TERRITORY
RESIDENCIES NETWORK
OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTIC RESEARCH RESIDENCIES
3 Residencies for artists and/or researchers
Deadline: 24th of May 2020

Duration of residency: 15 days on location + time for preparatory and concluding work
Locations: Toulouse, Barcelona, Palma

 

ABOUT

A ⇆ T is a project establishing a network of residencies for the promotion of artistic research and production in Catalonia, the Balearic Islands and Occitania, promoted by a collaboration between  Idensitat, Casa Planas (Palma), La Escocesa (Barcelona) and Le BBB Centre d’art (Toulouse). It is supported by the Euroregion Pyrénées Méditerranée - AAP Culture / Pyrenees-Mediterranean Euroregion. 

A ⇆ T begins with a joint open call for three residential artistic research projects, in three specific contexts that share a common conceptual framework around the concept of 'the transperipheral'. 

We find ourselves in a globalised context with a widening trend distinguished by a fear of the other and of the unknown, where the politics of withdrawal, of an appeal to nationalism and a redefinition of borders are becoming fashionable as antidotes, causing isolation, a lack of communication, lockdown, self-imposed or otherwise, or disunity. All reactions and consequences again affect the tension between the centre (as a predictable space of control) and the periphery (as a space of uncertainty and turmoil). The concept "transperipheral", allows us to develop the idea of traversing, testing, deactivating or boosting the concept of centre and periphery, to project it beyond what is to be found inside and outside the fields of control. 

The production spaces participating in this project (A ⇆ T network) are aware of their location and at the same time of their peripheral stance, both in relation to the urban context and to the artistic practices which they promote. A temporary residency is a period of relocation in a particular unknown space, but which at the same time offers the opportunity to connect with it, and to communicate with it. 

With this joint call, based on three temporary residences, A ⇆ T Network offers the possibility of carrying out artistic projects that tackle the idea of testing boundaries, using the very arts centre which plays host to the residence as a space from which to advance this critical reflection. Ideas are encouraged which re-evaluate and transgress the classic two-dimensionality between centre and periphery, contributing to a conceptual spin, with the involvement of the A ⇆ T network nodes. 

With these residencies, the A ⇆ T Network aims to create a framework in which to (re)think temporal and spatial displacement, and at the same time to advance proposals that draw attention to the possibility of transgressing the very space and time which lends meaning to the residencies. 

Taking into account that each node in the A ⇆ T network has its own specific character and certain contextual relationships with its own periphery, this call is open to those artists and researchers interested in situating their practice within the framework of the concept of " the transperipheral" which, as has already been mentioned above, becomes a process open to exploring new ways of occupying centres of art production, and of making a connection with some of its contextual elements. 

WHO is it aimed at?

This open call is aimed at anyone who, working in the fields of art, creation and contemporary thought, is interested in conducting research, a residency and training in a different location. Applicants must be resident in Catalonia, the Balearic Islands or Occitania, and there is no age limit. Applications by Individual, teams, collectives or other kinds of organisation will be accepted. 

WHERE?

The residences will be in Casa Planas (Palma de Mallorca), La Escocesa (Barcelona) and Le BBB Centre d’Art (Toulouse). Idensitat assumes the overall coordination and monitoring of the project.
The following is a brief overview of each of these institutions. 

Casa Planas, in the district of Es Fortí (Palma de Mallorca), promotes culture through a platform of experimentation, research and creativity committed to saving the former Casa Planas as photographic materials factory. It is a factory of enthusiastic interdisciplinary creation, a meeting place for workshops on techniques in the photographic darkroom, in screen printing and in new media, as well as workshops in contemporary art and critical thinking. It also offers a concert hall, dance and performing arts laboratories, a radio station, rehearsal and recording rooms, as well as artists’ studios and shared creation spaces, among other non-classifiable activities.
The Centre d’Investigació Artística i de Cultura Contemporània Casa Planas (Casa Planas Artistic and Contemporary Culture Research Centre) is the benchmark creation centre on the island which focuses on image and post-photography, so that its main line of work revolves around the image. Its activities are linked to the recovery of the Planas Archive, materials which allow for in-depth research into topics such as tourism, landscape, memory, the postcard, and projects on the climate emergency and gender perspectives. We are interested in projects that explore hybrid, performance and post-photographic techniques. 

www.casaplanas.org

La Escocesa, in the district of Poblenou (Barcelona), is a space recovered by a group of artists who in the 1990's decided to reinterpret the building’s industrial use. Today it is an open factory for art produced through analogic media which covers the needs of artists in different stages of their career, offering work spaces and resources for project development. La Escocesa aims to become a centre of artistic experimentation which is attractive to the city’s artistic and cultural community, providing components of training to both the residents of the centre and to the artistic and cultural community of the city as a whole, working within the area of the Poblenou district, and with the city of Barcelona in general.

For this reason, the line of work will revolve around the social space of the neighbourhood, in relation to the territorial specificities of this part of the city and its industrial past. Topics to be developed as an art-based research project in or around the centre, topics such as the use of methodologies in art produced through analogic media, obsolescence, a critical analysis of the link between society and technology, urban processes of recovery, and memory of the industrial past, and the use of art to relate to the specific social fabric of the environment of La Escocesa, will be welcomed. 

www.laescocesa.org

BBB Art Centre, set in a former electric coil manufacturing workshop in the northern part of Toulouse, is also a structure dedicated to artistic creation, and a platform for resources, training and professional support for artists. Since its creation, it has shown its commitment to contemporary art through the distribution of artistic and social critical reflections, becoming a cultural reference point in its area of influence, and encouraging a greater diversification in its audiences.
The centre is located at the intersection of two different areas: Izards / 3 Cocus, a vulnerable neighbourhood currently undergoing renovation, and Borderouge, an area which has been under development since 2004, situated on a broad, long established horticultural area. For 25 years the Art Centre has created solid links with socio-cultural agents in these areas, and with a wide variety of audiences, establishing a cultural dynamic of exchanges and dialogues.
The lines of work that BBB art centre proposes for this residence are: the zones of social development, and the positive use of public space by residents; the memory of these districts, their traces or the omission of the past due to an accelerated pace of urbanisation; the question of the exchange and coexistence of different cultural approaches on the same territory.

IDENSITAT is an arts project which experiments with various ways of impacting upon the public sphere through creative proposals related to place and territory in their spatial, temporal and social dimensions. 

IDENSITAT functions as a system which incorporates other projects, actions or interventions, site- and context-specific; a system based upon collaborative dynamics in order to construct a relationship between contemporary artistic practices and other disciplinary fields, and in order to devise connections between certain zones of influence in social space.

WHEN?

SUBMISSION OF PROPOSALS
The submission period for proposals opens on April 15th, and ends on May 24th.
The final selection will be posted at the end of June on the ART ⇆ T network centres’ websites, and results will also be sent by email to each applicant.

THE RESIDENCIES
Residencies will last 15 days in each centre comprising the A ⇆ T network, according to the following schedule:
August 24th to September 6th: Residency period in Casa Planas
October 1st to 15th: Residency period in La Escocesa
November 1st to 15th: Residency period at Le BBB
* Please note that this timetable may be subject to change or adaptation, depending upon how the current public health emergency progresses.

HOW?

The residencies’ duration allows artists to establish a condensed space and time in which to start research, to develop a specific phase of an ongoing study or project, or to set out the conclusions of a process carried out previously. The projects presented must result in a public action which may be a final event or production, or which may be considered as one exercise within a wider working process.

Each is an on-site residency of 15 days, which means that the artist, or the team, should perform preparatory tasks before the residency, and a degree of follow-up work afterwards, in relation to the line of work which is to be followed.

All proposals for art projects, and projects of artistic and social mediation, related to the proposed theme - "transperiphery" - and especially those projects which connect with active local agents, or that take the institutional agents themselves into account, are welcome. These projects may take the form of workshops, presentations, public actions, productions, and the documented results of artistic research. 

Proposals must be submitted in digital format using the specific form, filling out each of the fields and attaching a single document in PDF format, maximum 8Mb, that includes:
        1. - Summary of the proposal: Written document which sets out an advance description of the project with its basic lines, indicating a methodology and a working schedule (maximum 2 pages).
        2. Expanded proposal: Document with written and/or visual information in which those aspects that are considered most important for the understanding and explanation of the project are further developed (maximum 3 pages).
        3. Dossier of previous works: A selection of recent projects from the individual or team applicant, which serves to contextualise, and to facilitate understanding of, the project. (maximum 5 projects)
        4. Curriculum vitae of the individual artist,  or of all team members, in the case of a collective application. It is recommended to focus on aspects relevant to this call. In the case of a team, a representative must be specified (maximum 1 page per CV).

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

The three selected proposals will each be provided with the following resources:
         1. A fee of 1200 euros.
         2. 500 euros to cover production.
         3. Travel expenses and allowances provided by participating centres.
         4. Accommodation and work space in the participating centres of the A ⇆ T network. 

These resources will be the same for each residence, regardless of whether the application is for an individual or a team. Other specific resources - activities, workshops, services, equipment, etc. - that may be necessary for the development of each project, may be found on the website of each A ⇆ T centre. For further assistance and extended information on resources or in relation to local agents, applicants may write directly to the institutions involved, using the usual means of contact.

All documentation generated by this open call will be filed. The projects presented, and the works developed, will remain the property of the artist(s). The A ⇆ T network (Casa Planas, La Escocesa, Le BBB art and Idensitat) may reproduce and distribute, either through publications online or on paper, the whole or part of the schedule, the dossiers of submitted projects, and/or materials obtained from work processes or public presentations, always citing the respective authors. 

Selected artists must agree to the following as a condition of the residency:
         1. At the end of the residency, the artist or team must make a public presentation in the form of an event or a workshop, or else stage an activity within a broader work process.
         2. The institution must be given advance notification in the event of a cancellation of the residency.
         3. The artist/s must be present in the corresponding centre - Casa Planas, La Escocesa or Le BBB - during the dates of the residency; unjustified absence by the artist/s may result in the cancellation of the residency.
         4. Artists must give mention and credit to the ART ⇆ TERRITOIRE / ART ⇆ TERRITORI project and Eurorégion Pyrénées Méditerranée - AAP Culture / Eurorégio Pirineus Mediterrania when any public action is disseminated or publicised in the context of the project.

EVALUATION

Applications will be evaluated according to the documents presented, based upon the concepts set out in this open call.

The selection of the projects will be realised by means of a joint committee comprising representatives of the four partners of the ART ⇆ T project (Casa Planas, La Escocesa, Le BBB Centre d’Art and Idensitat). The final decision of the committee will be agreed by consensus, and will be irrevocable.
