Organisation:

Eligibility:

A four-week, virtual/online residency with Kolaj Institute in November and December 2022

Deadline to apply: October 16, 2022

We are living in an explosively political time, faced with crises that are not only deepening individually but becoming increasingly intersectional in relation to each other. There is a strong history of collage art being used to tackle complex socio-political issues during some of the most difficult eras but how can it meet this moment and spark meaningful dialogues about our varied, contemporary issues? 

During the Politics in Collage residency, we will be discussing the history of political collage and important political collage artists, exploring how to curate and exhibit this crucial art form, and, most importantly, challenging ourselves to push our own artistic practice further in the creation of political collage. During the month-long residency, artists will hear from a variety of guest speakers specializing in different aspects of this form during four virtual meetings on Tuesdays from 4-6PM EST. Through ongoing online discussions and regular collage exercises in between meetings, artists will learn how to articulate complex political subjects in their work and explore how to inspire engagement with difficult socio-political topics through collage.

Artists in the residency will conceptualize and begin work on a piece exploring a political or social subject of their choosing. Although the works may not be completed by the end of the residency, they will be regularly critiqued and discussed by the group throughout. Artists will write an artist statement that documents and provides critical context for their work. The completed work and texts from the residency will result in a book published by Kolaj Institute and an exhibition, whether in-person or online, to be determined at a later date. 

G.E. Vogt will be leading the residency, shedding light on her own work as a political collage artist, as well as moderating discussions and sharing resources with artists. Professor John J Heartfield will discuss the history of his grandfather, John Heartfield, and how his work was not only a crucial part of the resistance to fascism in World War II, but continues to have a resounding impact in today’s world. Professor Wendy Parker will take the artists through a broad history of political collage, how it has engaged with and influenced different socio-political movements, and various collage artists who have played key roles in furthering this art form. Ric Kasini Kadour will speak to the importance and relevance of political art in relation to its influence on contemporary cultural and political narratives. Other guest speakers are to be determined and will be added to the curriculum as they become available.

The goal of this residency is to help collage artists who are creating social/political work, or interested in doing so, to grow and expand their practice. By the end of the residency, the participants will be able to practically apply to their own work what they have learned from lectures, discussions, and practical exercises.

Eligibility:

AADK Spain invites all artists and researchers who wish to work on the topics of body, territory and/or spatiality to participate in its Artist Residency Program.

Theoretical research projects of any scientific or humanistic discipline are eligible for this call, provided that they have the artistic practice as their object of study.

For this call, priority will be given to projects which have the natural environment as their starting point, explore the topic of animality, and/or reflect on our interdependence with non-human species.

The Artist Residency Program is carried out in Centro Negra, the current headquarters of AADK Spain located in the town of Blanca, Murcia. This program is a space for reflection and artistic research that encourages linking research with the historical, cultural and geographical context of the region.

We invite you to submit your proposals!

 

Duration of residency
1 up to 6 months with 2 months being the recommended minimum for the full development of a project. The residency period starts on the first day of the first month and ends on the 30th day of the last month.

Accommodation
Private room in a shared house or individual apartment. The housing facilities are divided into two areas, consisting of a group of four apartments bordering Centro Negra and an old house in the centre of the town. The latter was the former Video Art Museum, EDOM. The apartments are equipped with private kitchens, toilets and showers. They have a terrace for common use and direct access to the main building. The house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen with a living room. It is located in the heart of the village and has excellent access to all shops and stores. It is also ideal for immersing oneself in the daily life of Blanca. Both housing areas have access to washing machines and are equipped with bedding and towels.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
Artists, designers, architects, landscapers and professionals of all related disciplines who wish to think and work on the proposed axes. No age limit. Both individual and collective proposals are eligible.

Basic technical equipment
Support in production
Mentoring and curatorial support
Visibility of the artist in the communication channels of AADK Spain

Studio / Workspace
Centro Negra is the main building of AADK Spain. It serves both as a working area and exhibition space. It is located on the slope of a mountain, is reachable only by foot, and stands at the foot of a Moorish castle from the twelfth century. Its architecture is an assembly of small poultry yards and ancient houses that fell into disuse at the beginning of the twentieth century. It still retains many stone walls and mountain ledges. The current structure is made up of 6 different and interconnected spaces. Each of them is unique in its size and morphology, constituting a set of great versatility and capable of adapting to multiple purposes. Given the morphology of the building, closed workspaces are not possible. We invite you to take on this challenge as an opportunity to be in touch with the creative processes of other participants.

Fees and support
The cost for the residency program varies according to the number of members per project and depends on whether the artist applies independently or is represented by a partner institution. Please check out our Terms&Conditions for more information. Find the document on our website under the 'Residencies' menu.

Expectations towards the artist
We organise an open studio event at the end of each month to share the process of the participants with the public. Participation in the open studios is highly encouraged but not obligatory. Those who wish to participate in the program should keep in mind that in addition to its Artist Residences Program, AADK Spain carries out another series of programs and activities involving local, national and international participants. We consider all of them, as well as our artists in residence, participants of a temporary and shared community, where everyone commits to giving their best in pursuit of harmonious coexistence in a small town.
