Country:

Residency dates: Sun 06 – Sat 12 September 2020.

Apply by: midnight Monday 04 May 2020.

This group residency has been devised by The Museum of Loss and Renewal in partnership with Amsterdam-based The Future Publishing & Printing. It is offered for creative practitioners working with printed matter and publishing as an artistic practice and for those who have a strong interest in this area.

FOCAL POINTS OF THE RESIDENCY

•    Publishing as an artistic practice 
•    Independent publishing: possibilities and limitations
•    Collective knowledge
•    Materiality and form 
•    Individual practice
•    The book as a platform for encounters
•    Redefining the framework: from book to publishing
•    The art book versus the artist’s book
•    Natural environment of exceptional significance
•    Published outcome
•    Outcome presented internationally

APPROACH

The group residency will provide a partially-structured and hands-on programme to enable residents to develop their skills, and understanding of artists' publications and publishing. The residency experience is designed to stimulate new ways of thinking and experimentation through production, research, learning and presentation. Residents will work collectively and individually. The residency is devised around the idea of the book as a platform for creative encounters. By listening, looking and making residents will investigate image, text, typography, object and context relationships. In addition to each resident’s individual work, there will be a final outcome in the form of a collective publication with ISBN that will be published by The Museum of Loss and Renewal and presented at international events. The publication produced from last year’s residency was launched at the Printing Plant Art Book Fair in Amsterdam, and the group residents’ work will be featured this year by offline residency partner MAP magazine.

The aim of this residency is to provide a supportive and stimulating environment to develop your production skills and knowledge of artists’ publications, printed matter and publishing as an artistic practice. Alongside individual practice, the residency will have a focus on knowledge exchange, creating opportunities to learn from each other.

A series of group sessions supported by specific learning models will enable you, without hierarchies, to explore your own practice and the residency theme PLACE, PEOPLE and TIME: publishing as an artistic practice. ‘(Semi)Public Confessions of Guilty Pleasures’ will ask ‘what is your relationship to books and publishing?’, ‘Narrating the work of others’ will explore medium versus message, and ’24 hour book’ will enable the creation of a book from concept to physical object. 

‘Visual Dialogue’ and ‘Slow Looking’ will focus on attention to detail. An underlying theme of ‘Micro-Macro’ will connect the group to the residency location and to the wider world, in consideration of what one brings from a place and what is subsequently left in a place. Sessions will be facilitated by Vincent Schipper (Studio The Future / The Future Publishing & Printing) and Tracy Mackenna & Edwin Janssen (artists, educators and curators of The Museum of Loss and Renewal; residents of Collemacchia) who will provide practical and theoretical mentoring. The residency will have an offline engagement with international relevant experts and like-minded initiatives that will provide bespoke content, expanding the residency in time and space.

You will explore various approaches to publishing as an artistic practice from historical and contemporary perspectives. By presenting and discussing key subjects such as analogue-digital relationships, platforms available to independent-publishers, small presses, artists’ groups and collectives we aim to facilitate an ongoing creative dialogue between making and discussing while immersed in the stunning environment of Collemacchia’s mountain landscape itself.

Opportunities for participants to share work in progress will happen throughout the residency, enabling conversations and peer support. Surrounding this loose structure, there will be time to develop your own work and to experience the local environment.

LOCATION

The residency is located in Collemacchia, a small village within Italy’s National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, a protected area of exceptional significance and beauty. Engagement with the natural world begins on the doorstep and the mountainous landscape offers an excellent environment for reflective practice. The ancient, undisturbed and extensive terrain holds a rich and complex history visible in the area’s architecture, customs, agricultural lands and forests. The area is sparsely populated by villages that are largely trilingual Italian-French-English due to the large community of emigrants who continually move between European nations, stemming from economic migration dating from approx. 1850. The village has been home to Tracy Mackenna’s family for centuries and the curators of The Museum of Loss and Renewal foster strong links with the local community which is highly supportive of the Residency Programme.

FACILITIES

Residents are accommodated in two recently renovated, comfortable houses situated a couple of minutes walk from each other. Houses have fully equipped kitchens, bathrooms, sitting rooms etc. A variety of bedrooms are available. Central heating. Internet throughout. Cleaning is included in cost. Group Residencies are fully catered by our wonderful cook, with an emphasis on local produce.

Studio space is located in two buildings, situated a couple of minutes walk from each other; recently renovated, and include indoor and outdoor making spaces, and desk space. Internet throughout.

FACILITATORS

The residency will be led by Vincent Schipper and Tracy Mackenna & Edwin Janssen.

Vincent Schipper is co-founder of Studio The Future / The Future Publishing and Printing. Studio The Future is an experiment-focused and independent publisher based in Amsterdam. It was founded in 2013 by Vincent Schipper and Klara van Duijkeren, each of whom has a broad background in architecture, urbanism and artistic research. Their purpose is to give small and/or experimental ideas that could have a large impact, an opportunity to communicate through the print medium. Breaking away from the current idea of publishing and returning it to the more classical meaning of ‘making ideas public’, they create space and possibilities for a range of alternatives to emerge and enter our everyday discourse. By initiating, collaborating and co-creating, The Future publishes ideas through installations, exhibitions, research, artist residencies and events which inevitably lead to printed matter - books, magazines, pamphlets and such like. Though based in Amsterdam, they collaborate and distribute internationally.

Tracy Mackenna (Prof Emerita; SCO-IT) & Edwin Janssen (Dr; NL) are the founders and co-curators of The Museum of Loss and Renewal. Their collaborative art practice is a creative and discursive site where production, presentation, exchange, co-learning and research meet. Publishing is a core component of their artistic practice. The Museum of Loss and Renewal’s key areas of focus are social relationships, the way places are inhabited and how personal objects reflect who we are. Tracy and Edwin work with international partners to devise and present multifaceted exhibition projects that address issues of societal concern such as well-being, ageing, end of life and sustainability. Tracy and Edwin are highly experienced, award winning educators who have devised and lead multiple group learning projects situated within the international museum and gallery sector, and higher education.

RESIDENCY FEES

The Residency Programme is operated on a non- commercial cost covering basis, and is financially supported by The Museum of Loss and Renewal in order to keep fees low. The residency fee is €930 (Euro), to be paid by the artist. This fee includes accommodation in spacious twin rooms with full board (3 meals each day). Ingredients are mainly locally sourced and meals are cooked by a local chef. Special diets can be catered for.

A deposit of €310 (Euro) will be required within three weeks of accepting a place on the residency. The remaining balance of €620 (Euro) is payable six weeks in advance of the residency start date.

You will be responsible for funding and organising your own travel, your own insurances and any visa requirements particular to your country of origin. Detailed travel information will be supplied (closest airports Naples, Rome), and collection/drop-off at a local train station will be arranged.

We do not have external funding for this project, so regret that we are unable to offer assistance with fees, flights, production costs or other subsistence. Typically, successful applicants source funding by applying to their national arts funding bodies, personal fundraising, or through academic institutional support. Formal letters of invitation can be provided to assist in this process.

Category:

Country:

The Watermill Center’s Artist Residency Program began in 2006, when The Center officially opened as a year-round facility. Each year collectives and individuals take up residence at The Center to live and develop works that critically investigate, challenge and extend the existing norms of artistic practice.

The Artist Residency Program is process-based, without the expectation or promise of a final exhibition of the work. Watermill provides artists with time and space to focus on developing their practice in a communal environment that encourages experimentation. Artists-in-Residence share their creative process with the community through open rehearsals, workshops and artist talks.

Artists-in-Residence receive access to an extensive collection of resources central to the Watermill experience: 20,000 square feet of rehearsal/design spaces and outdoor stages; a theater production archive (housed in New York City); The Watermill Center Study Library; The Watermill Collection; and The Center’s ten acre landscaped grounds and gardens.

Applications are reviewed by a distinguished international committee composed of artists, academics, and cultural leaders across disciplines. To date, we have hosted over 200 residencies featuring artists from more than 65 nations.

RESIDENCY DATES // 1 MARCH - 31 MARCH
OPEN CALL DEADLINE // 18 DECEMBER 2019

 

Our fragile sense of self needs support, and this we get by having and possessing things because, to a large degree, we are what we have and possess.

(Tuan, Yi-Fu , 1980, "The Significance of the Artifact," Geo-graphical Review, 70 (4), 462-472.)

We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art…

(Le Guin, Ursula K., Speech at the National Book Awards, 2014)

Present-day systems of consumption emphasise the construction of the sense of self through acquisition – having. They present the act of buying a house or upgrading to the latest tech innovation as a kind of “self-improvement”; and in some ways, it may be simpler and easier to have than to be or become. However, satisfying the individual desire to have drives ever-increasing wealth inequality, labour exploitation and environmental devastation, and within all this, “cultural producers” play a precarious and contradictory role.

What functions do art, fashion and design serve beyond consumerism? Perhaps we can loosen capitalism’s ideological hold on the concept of exchange? Human beings intrinsically have much more than their accumulations of objects: ideas, bodies, and ways of relating to both human and non-human others that are not predetermined by economic transactionality. On both a macro- and a micro-scale, there is great scope for cultural producers to re-think ecologies of consumption. 

Residency 16: Live or Buy has been developed with artist Nina Sarnelle, clothing designer Ida Falck Øien and clothing label HAiKw/. It will offer participants the opportunity to explore these critical questions in intimate, personal and physical ways. Sarnelle and Falck Øien plan to test the potential of dematerialised, interactive techniques (borrowed from areas such as live action role play, therapy, improvisation and social practice), to escape the pervasive logic of the free market and – through fantasy, allegory or live experiment – propose alternative forms of social or economic organization. Their goal is not to arrive at a grand solution but rather (in Donna Haraway’s phrase) to stay with the trouble, embracing doubt and working with failure and intuition to develop new practices of research, inquiry and “dirty hybrids” of resistance. 

Residents are warmly encouraged to bring their own specialisms to bear in the course of the residency. When applying, please articulate (a) the relevant background knowledge and experience you will bring to the residency, (b) the particular interests or topic you plan to explore during your stay, and (c) its relationship to the agendas above. Applications are welcomed from cultural producers working at any point along the theory-practice spectrum.

Nina Sarnelle and Ida Falck Øien use both theory and art/design practice to look at issues of consumer power and sustainability. Their work has focused on the clothing industry; on- and offline scams; the politics of “economic development”, and labour infrastructures in the digital economy.
