Call for Applications: NAC Residency Programme June–November 2020 and Nightlife Residency June–July 2020 in Nida, Lithuania  

Application deadline: 27 March, 2020

NAC is seeking applications for its international residency program and new residency format dedicated to nightlife from artists working in a wide range of disciplines.

 

NAC Residency Programme June–November 2020

The residency programme at Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts (NAC) grants selected artists the opportunity to live and work in Nida, Lithuania for a period between two and six months. NAC is located in a remote UNESCO World Heritage Site, surrounded by the unique landscape of the Curonian spit: forest, sand dunes, a freshwater lagoon, and the sea. NAC is a subdivision of Vilnius Academy of Arts and in addition to the international artist-in-residency programme, it organises educational and research projects as well as exhibitions.

The programme has the capacity to host up to five international residents at a time. NAC regularly works with visual artists and researchers who focus on history, ecology and politics, social sciences, visual culture and interdisciplinarity. The programme is also open to designers, architects, and curators, as well as practitioners working with performing arts, sound, material research/craft, and film. In addition, proposals for a residency by professionals from other fields are always welcome.

The programme’s goal is to provide time and space for residents to focus, and through exchange, gain insight, broaden, and diversify their outlook. NAC is collaborating with local cultural institutions and offers the possibility to organise presentations and engage with the educational programme of NAC by conducting artist talks or workshops at Vilnius Academy of Arts or local public schools.

LIVING AND WORKING CONDITIONS
Each of the five duplex residency studios have 65m2 of total space, and are equipped with basic kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and workspace infrastructure. Additionally, full access is given to the common spaces such as the library and the professional workshop (with laser cutting, wood and metal working tools, plus photo, video and sound equipment).

DURATION
Two to six months; June–November 2020

COSTS
Studio and living space rent is 400 Eur/month, including all taxes, use of equipment, WiFi, communal spaces, and bicycles. No grants are available; selected candidates are issued a letter of support for individual grant-seeking.

 

Nightlife Residency June–July 2020

In collaboration with Beijing based I: Project Space and The Neighborhood, we are calling for DJs, producers, artists, and performers to work in Nida for a two-month residency in June and July 2020, to focus on individual productions and connect to the vivid and urban summer community of the Neringa region, including its open-air beach and forest clubs, bars and hangouts. Nida is a remote village on the Curonian Spit and the Baltic Sea in Lithuania, secluded during most parts of the year, but then becoming a broad meeting point in the summer months.

Developed by I: Project Space and The Neighborhood, Nightlife Residency was launched 2018 for the first time to give artists working on fusion of visual art and nightclub culture time and space to focus on their productions as well as connect to the ever-growing and increasingly idiosyncratic nightclub and electronic music communities in Beijing and China. Bringing this residency format to Nida and the Baltic Region, we want to open up the NAC Residency to a broad scope of practitioners, rhythms, sounds, and visuals and contribute to twisting and broadening definitions of visual culture.

“This new nightlife residency is a safe space for unsafe ideas.”

“You see the untapped potential of nightclubs as spaces in need of deeper consideration; you agree that the relationship between nightlife and contemporary art has not yet been fruitfully explored. As a producer or DJ, you extend what you do into the visual realm; and/or the visual art that you make is tied up with electronic music and nightclubs.”

During the residency, there will be opportunities to perform, exhibit, and experiment with the local scene. The selected resident will receive a 2500€ grant to cover travel and visa costs, living, accommodation, and workspace costs at NAC in Nida.

This application is open to all; there are no restrictions on artists’ mediums, age, nationality, ethnicity, gender, or any other criteria.

ELEVEN_next
Artist-in-residence program @ WENNFELD_HAUS

April – September 2020

The call is aimed at professional artists of all genres with no age or gender restrictions. The content-related requirement for the application is the artistic examination of neighborhood, house, living, rooms inside and outside, city utopias - temporally and spatially etc.

Background
The so-called "Wennfeld Garden" has a long tradition as a residential area: Archaeological finds show traces of settlement at the time of the Alemannic seizure of the land in the 7th century and grave finds even as early as the Hallstatt period (800-450 BC).
The project house WENNFELD_HAUS is the last remaining building of the post-war settlement from the 1950s and will be demolished in November 2020. It clears the space for a new, densely populated residential area, the construction and settlement of which is already taking place.

Project
During the gradual move-out of the last residents, before demolition, there is a temporary space in which the art and culture project builds a bridge between the past and the new, the "inside" and the "outside", the "top" and "bottom". The overall project WENNFELD_HAUS | next is an artistic-social experiment and lived utopia. "Next" is understood both spatially and temporally:
How do we want to live, where and with whom? How do we define “good life”?

Artist-in-Residence
3-4 artists live together in the house for 1-2 month(s) and can develop work on site in direct dialogue with one another and with regional artists and residents. This creates a continuous process of transformation of the artistic-social sculpture WENNFELD_HAUS | next.

The temporary artists' accommodations are set up in the rooms of two apartments that are already empty. They offer the artists room to live and work. The two project managers and the project office are also housed there during this period. The first workshops and events also take place in part in the two apartments. The living rooms are functional, there are 2 toilets and 2 bathrooms and a common kitchen. The apartments are not "anonymized" by a new coat of paint. They are cleaned, but otherwise remain in the living condition and traces of the last residents. In this way, the artistic examination of neighborhood and living begins with the "next" environment. The guest artists will be able to intervene directly in the existing state and in any sense leave other rooms for their successors - who in turn can further the process of change in their sense.

Where
The project house is located on the south-eastern edge of Tübingen in the immediate vicinity of the so-called "French Quarter", a colorful urban quarter on the site of the former French military barracks (INFO: https://www.tuebingen.de/franz_viertel#/1608) and to the two alternative car seats "Bambule" and "Kuntabunt" in the adjacent forest (INFO: http://kububabu.eu).

In the quarter there are many artist studios, cafés, bistros and the project partner, the “Werkstadthaus”.
Various bus lines take you to the main train station and the historic old town in 10-15 minutes, and it takes about 25 minutes to walk.

workshops
In the so-called "Werkstadthaus" there is free WiFi access for the participating artists and workshops that can be used to develop the respective artistic concept: a bicycle workshop, workshop for wood, clay and metal as well as a sewing workshop can be found there. The prerequisite for using the workshops is an introduction to machine use and safety measures.
(INFO: https://www.werkstadthaus.de)

Garden
The project house has a garden that can be used in cooperation. It could be played and designed as part of you artwork.

Open apartment
An additional apartment on the ground floor is gradually being transformed into a public space for encounters, exchanges, communication, presentations and events. At the same time, it is an open studio and material for all participating artists. Among other things, a passage to the garden is to be created here.
