Artist-in-Residency 2021






2021 Muckenthaler Cultural Center Artist-in-Residence Application Information

The Muckenthaler Center is currently accepting applications for their Artist-in-Residence for 2021.  Artists of any and all disciplines and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.  Special consideration is given to artists who live and/or work in Orange County, California

To apply send an email to containing the following information:  

  • A brief history of the artist's career.  It is not essential to have a long prestigious resume. Both well-established and emerging artists are eligible. But it is vital that we know who you are.
  • A detailed description of how you would spend your residency year including: 
    • What artistic projects you would like to create and how it fits our mission statement.
    • How you would integrate into existing Muck programming (Yes, that will require a bit of research) 
    • Why would your residency benefit you, The Muck, and the Community?

Our two most recent Artists in Residence have been:

2019 Lara Wilson - Choreographer and Leader of The Assembly.  Lara and her group spent all of 2019 choreographing and workshopping on our stage, a world premiere dance piece reflecting a new view of women in society.  Her residency included rehearsals and workshops open to the public, and culminated in a public performance on our main stage.

2020 Katharine Zaun - Poet and Educator.  Katharine has used her residency year to create a series of classes and workshops for our community.  She also contributes a monthly poem that gets distributed to 60,000 people through our outreach.  Her residency culminated in a community-based found poetry project mural that has been featured in the OC Register and the LA Times.

One last word of encouragement.  We don't care if you're a muralist who only paints miniatures, or a punk-rock theremin player, or a puppet show documentarian.  We are searching for ingenuity, dedication, and the ability to integrate into our culture.

Cruzar el océano para migrar.
La historia del mundo es la historia de la migración. La historia de los nombres que se les ha dado a esos grupos humanos en movimiento: pobladores, migrantes, refugiados, colonizadores, expatriados, diáspora.
Nosotrxs cruzamos el océano para vivir entre los «conquistadores». En nuestro programa hemos decidido hablar sobre cómo y porqué llegamos aquí, y sobre todo cómo logramos quedarnos, cómo y porqué quisimos y pudimos irnos.
La fluidez de fronteras y territorios ha llegado a humedecer nuestra identidad. Habitamos espacios híbridos y fluidos de enunciación. La identidad y la nacionalidad son equivalentes y opuestas a toda hora.
Lo «Latinoamericano» desde “Europa” se vive entre redes expandidas, familias encontradas y otredades encarnadas.

– Puede ser obra inédita u obra creada con anterioridad.
– Se pueden presentar varias obras de unx mismx artista.

* video-performance
* video documentation of a performance
* photo-performance

The works will be part of the first edition of the encuentro CONTINUO LATIDO AMERICANO DE PERFORMANCE 2020 which will be broadcast internationally from November 13 to 4 December, 2020.

– Intercultural parenting
– Institutional / everyday / carnal racism
– Neither here nor there
– Exoticism / Orientalism: how do I face it without feeding it and without losing my identity?

To cross the ocean to migrate.
The history of the world is the history of migration. The history of the names that have been given to those human groups on the move: settlers, migrants, refugees, colonizers, expatriates, diaspora.
We crossed the ocean to live among the “conquerors.” In our program we have decided to talk about how and why we got here, and above all how we managed to stay, how and why we wanted to and were able to leave.
The fluidity of borders and territories has come to moist our identity. We inhabit hybrid and fluid spaces of enunciation. Identity and nationality are equivalent and opposite at all times.
The “Latin American identity” from within “Europe” is lived between expanded networks, found families and embodied otherness.

– The work must be of total authorship of the artists applying.
– It can be an unpublished work or a work created previously.
– Several works by the same artist can be presented.
– Videos must not exceed 10 minutes (including credits).
– Once selected, the organization will ask the artists for a higher quality format in order to optimize the quality of the projection.
– The selected artists will give written authorization for the use of the image, name, videos and texts within the context of the encuentro CONTINUO LATIDO AMERICANO DE PERFORMANCE 2020, that is, online and live presentations and promotion.
– The participation in this call implies acceptance of each and every one of the terms specified therein.

Deadline: Friday 18 October 2020

hungry eyes festival - festival at the intersection of film, performance and installation art





February 5th – 7th, 2021 // KiZ Gießen

For its fourth edition, hungry eyes festival is once again looking for artistic works that situate themselves at the intersection of film, performance and installation art and question film in an interdisciplinary way. This year hungry eyes festival will take place in the urban exhibition space KiZ (Kultur im Zentrum) and poses the question of how cinematic works can relate to, as well as challenge that space.
A program consisting of short film series, performative and installative works will explore what constitutes the medium film and how cinematographic elements and working methods can be translated into other media. What can cinematic work mean in the context of installation art and performances if it does not only mean the playing of audiovisual clips? To what extent can also a short film address its own form and play with performative elements? By which means does film become a field of experimentation that expands its own concept and practice in an interdisciplinary approach? From a ballet of overhead projectors, an exhibition with flip-books to a silent movie screening with
virtual reality glasses – everything is possible.

hungry eyes festival is looking for your short films, installation art and performative formats!

Apply with your works until 31th of August 2020!

Since we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary works, we also want to encourage artists to apply with projects that do not fit perfectly into one of these categories!
