ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE LABORATORY, WARSAW. Deadline: Jan. 31, 2012

OPEN CALL FOR INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS OF VARIOUS DISCIPLIES
AND RESEARCHERS TO TAKE PART IN RESIDENCIES
AT THE ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE LABORATORY, CCA UJAZDOWSKI CASTLE WARSAW

Deadline for applications: 31.01.2012

 

A three month long residency between 15.03–15.06.2012
The artists-in-residence programme laboratory at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw announces an Open Call for international artists and researchers working in the fields of visual and performing arts as well as design and architecture to take part in a residency in 2012.

Artists would be invited to work on research held in the frames of Studio Warszawa (Studio Warsaw), a platform for conducting artistic research projects on the basis of an international residency and study programme. Studio Warszawa is based on a collaboration between various cultural organisations in Warsaw and involves the mutual use and exchange of resources. The programme features a regular series of seminars with the participation of A-I-R’s residents and organised by A-I-R in conjunction with the Institute of Polish Culture.

We would like selected artists to respond to a proposed topic:
IMAGES AS ENDANGERED SPECIES
“Images are more real than anyone could have supposed. And just because they are an unlimited resource, one that cannot be exhausted by consumerist waste, there is all the more reason to apply the conservationist remedy. If there can be a better way for the real world to include the one of images, it will require an ecology not of real things, but of images as well.” (On Photography, Susan Sontag)

Selected artists are asked to join and enrich research on the relations between people and images in the times of a proliferation of self-representation demands from a variety of groups in public spaces. A popular diagnosis regarding “image overproduction” engages images in an ecological discourse. Taking up this language, we want to ask questions about the possibility of engaging in practices of image recycling, ethical stances of image production and dissemination; the symbiosis of people and images; efforts of determining the “healthy” number of images in an urban environment; as well as endangered kinds of images (exemplified by the fear of the passing away of analogue photography).

The choice will be made based on the quality of portfolios presenting past projects and a motivation letter, including the artist statement. The description of the proposed project to be realized in Warsaw is not obligatory and will not influence the results of the call.


A three month long residency between 15.03–15.06.2012
Deadline for applications: 31.01.2012

We are offering:
– Individual living space connected with the working space
– Grant of 3000 PLN per month / approx. 700 EUR
– Travel costs reimbursement up to 1600 PLN / approx. 370 EUR
– Project budget of 3000 PLN / approx. 700 EUR

Portfolio – electronic version – preferred format: pdf – in English, including:
1. documentation of selected works
2. artist’s statement
3. motivation letter – short explanation why you would like to take part in our program

About the Artists-In-Residence Laboratory

The A-I-R Laboratory program has been organising residencies for international artists at CCA Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw since 2003. In parallel, it seeks to promote Polish artists internationally by facilitating their participation in creative residencies hosted by the laboratory’s partner programs throughout the world. At present the A-I-R Laboratory can host up to seven artists at one time in studios placed in the CCA and the adjacent Laboratory building opened in 2010.
Resident artists receive an opportunity to present their projects to a public at the CCA as lectures, projections, public discussions, exhibitions and performances.

About the Institute of Polish Culture at University of Warsaw
The Institute of Polish Culture at the University of Warsaw (IKP) is a leading academic centre in Poland in the field of study of culture. An anthropological approach constitutes the theoretical foundation for both the research programme and the curriculum with courses covering anthropology of culture, anthropology of the word, anthropology of performance, and – most of all, in the perspective of residency programme – anthropology of film and visual culture. Courses are based on an inquiry into the nature and the historical uses of the basic media of culture: word, performance, image, as well as their technical actualisations: spectacle, different genres of literature, film, photography, mobile and digital media and so forth.

About the Bęc Zmiana Foundation
The Bęc Zmiana Foundation is a non-profit organization. We support the development and advancement of contemporary art and culture. We carry out projects of artists/architects/designers/interdisciplinary minds who are receptive to change, open-minded and imaginative.
We do art projects, exhibitions, design competitions, publish books, magazines, guides and maps. We run a very small space where we turn theory into practice – this multifunctional place is a gallery space, a bookshop, a cultural information for locals and foreigners, and more – we can shape its function according to our current needs.
We also strive for facilitating encounters between artists and the audience, filling the gap that exists between the artwork and its public. That is why creating common ground where these two can easily meet is essential for us. We try to achieve it by inventing actions that push the artwork out into the streets and public spaces, make it accessible for all social groups. Since we are based in Warsaw, we also try to emphasize the city’s peculiarity in many of our projects.
Bęc Zmiana creates a path for an undisturbed flow of energy, ideas and thoughts. We do not interpret art – we tunnel it.
