Sunday 8th August - Monday 30th August 2021

Application deadline: 

Wednesday 28th July 6pm 

3 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, living room, generous garden

 

Hypha Studios & Becontree Forever are looking for a creative practitioner to live in & make use of this house to develop their practice, explore new ideas or create a new project. The space is provided for free* along with an artist fee & small grant towards your public event or community engagement.

 

You are welcome to bring family members with you on your residency & to treat the house as your home for the duration. You may wish to use one of the bedrooms as a studio, or create work within and around the whole building. *we provide the space for free but you have to put down a deposit which you get back when you leave the property on time and in good condition We welcome your inventiveness in your use of the space & how it can support you develop your practice.

 

Perhaps you want to make a part studio / part gallery, or develop a horticulture-related project in the garden, maybe you want to turn a room into a collaborative workshop, or develop a theatrical performance. You may want to make work about the entire estate, or just a tiny physical detail of the house’s fabric.

 

All we ask is that you consider the following:

A site-responsive proposal though we encourage a broad interpretation of what “site” is to you & could include the architecture, social history, garden, archive or more

Community involvement which can be from any local community you identify & can be involved in your research, development, or public event

Your public event proposal as a critical element of your application, please give creative consideration  to this, who it will be for, & how it weaves with your creative practice

 

The Becontree Estate, in the borough of Barking & Dagenham, was the largest public housing estate in the world when it was constructed between 1921 & 1935. In total, it is over 26,000 homes to a ‘garden city’ model. Your work on this residency could consider the radical roots of the estate, seek to be part of the dialogue with existing communities, or help inform its future story.

 

BECONTREE FOREVER:

Becontree Forever is a year-long program of art, architecture & new infrastructure to mark 100 years of the Becontree Estate. It is led by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, in collaboration with residents and local partners such as the schools on the estate, Arc Theatre, Barking & Dagenham Youth Dance, East End Women’s Museum, Girls Like Us, Green Shoes Arts, Love Music Hate Racism, Studio 3 Arts, Soul and Sound & The White House, with national partners such as Create London, EFG London Jazz Festival, Focal Point Gallery, Serpentine Galleries & the Wellcome Trust.

 

We are committed to communities and culture.

The council have allocated this house as a space for the integration of culture into the estate for the duration of the Becontree Forever centenary celebrations, to further understanding of the architecture and histories of the estate, and as a central space for local communities to participate in culture. It has been used by other artists, and after the completion of these Hypha Studios residencies the house will be refurbished and returned to the local housing stock in Autumn 2021.

Public engagement is critical to the mission of this project and we ask you to deeply consider how you will involve local residents, schools or other groups within the creation of your work or in the public events. Support will be available to help you connect to local communities as your idea requires in order to best celebrate the estate’s history and community’s future through culture.

NYC4PA CALL FOR ENTRY - ARCHITECTURE 2021

City:

Architecture is defined as the art or science of building, often with a focus on habitable structures.  Great architects like Gehry, Wright, and Gaudi come to mind as well as famous buildings like the Sydney Opera House and the Disney Music Hall in LA. But architecture can be much broader that habitable buildings. Consider the Eiffel Tower, the pyramids in Egypt and interiors like the main hall at New York's Grand Central Station.  Gardens can have a fundamental architecture as can other carefully planned spaces, and skylines may represent a collection of similar or different types of architecture.

Send us your vision of architecture with images that represent any of the facets mentioned above or another interpretation you envision.  Whole structures and architectural detail are all welcome.

As with all calls, all 2D photographic art is accepted.

Eligibility:

What tools could enable us to develop new paradigms to respond to the social, political, economic or ecological changes awaiting our cities? How can we do this in a context of depletion of natural resources, climate change or social and demographic fractures? New balances between individual needs, social projects and available resources must be imagined. BIVOUAC wishes to reflect on the diversity of these energies which seek to question current rules and habits, to find innovative ideas that will emerge from this troubled period.

Scheduled from June 4 to 27, 2021, BIVOUAC will offer the public the opportunity to immerse themselves in the 50,000 m2 of La Rasude in Lausanne to discover works created on site, in dialogue with the place. The call for projects is open until January 31, 2021 and is addressed to all artists, architects and anyone working on urban issues.

Visits to the Rasude site are organized on December 10, 15 and 22 at 2 and 4 pm and on January 12 and 14 at 10 am.

DEMO RESIDENCY: EXISTENZMINIMUM Open call

Share

Eligibility:

Kaunas Artists’ House (KAH, Lithuania) together with Kulturni Centar LAB (Novi Sad, Serbia) are starting to carry out the Reciprocal Residency Programme DeMo (abbreviation of Decoding Modernity). The programme aims to explore the connections between different modernities and to unravel modernity as a phenomenon in the broader sense of time and space and across cultural, scientific, societal and industrial developments.

SUBJECT

The call for the creation of a vast infrastructure of  multi-unit residential buildings, using new construction technologies and standartisation and adhering to principles of sanitation and basic existential needs (Existenzminimum, as it was termed in German), became a cliched catchphrase in the attempt to define the goals of modernist architecture.        

 Vaidas Petrulis in “Architecture of Optimism” (ed. by Marija Drėmaitė, 2018)

In order to expand the notion of modernity, Reciprocal Residency Programme DeMo will be dedicated to the analysis of the modern architectural term EXISTENZMINIMUM and the intensity of its meaning in these fluctuating times. At the same time the theme of the open call is conceptually determined by the current instabilities and pandemic crisis which also define the limits of our existence as well as the restrictions of Western modernity. Besides the very wide meaning of the term EXISTENZMINIMUM is an architectural definition used to maintain the human needs to have comfortable and accessible housing after WWI. The term was coined by German post-war architects of the New Objectivity who were eager to build as much cost-effective housing as possible, partly to address Germany's postwar housing crisis, and partly to fulfill the promise of  Weimar Constitution. What would be our minimum existence demands for living conditions today? How did it change during quarantine? How do we perceive the post-war architectural principles now? 

The artists from Serbia and Lithuania are encouraged to apply with project proposals that would reflect on the historical, urban and social developments in terms of living conditions in between the needs and demands while researching, reflecting on the key technical term of EXISTENZMINIMUM, the space for survival. The artists are expected to develop an interdisciplinary research based project and during the physical residency time to realise it using modernist spaces of Kaunas or Novi Sad.

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

In order to provide a broader perspective on modernity or modernities DeMo, a three-year programme (2020-2022) of Kaunas Artists’ House, together with the Derry ~ Londonderry Center for Contemporary Art, the thankyouforcoming residency program in Nice, the Culture Center LAB in Novi Sad, and other partners is inviting artists, curators, cultural field researchers, and multidisciplinary collectives to explore the possible interfaces, overlaps and divergences between the different modernities, their forms and expressions.
