REMOTE INSTRUCTIONAL RESIDENCY

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

REMOTE INSTRUCTIONAL RESIDENCY

Crossed by the current context, we think in the necessity of researching the possibilities of the artistic work, bounded by the social distancing provisions we look for alternatives of coexistence through the artistic activation of our Shop- Window. Different voices have drawn our attention to the increasing vigilance and control by the state and society in general.

Instructional Residency is proposed as an artistic device of visibility and reflection on the current context and its consequences, based on the appearance in the public space in a situation of isolation / social distancing due to the pandemic. Using the space of a commercial showcase beside the street, Belgrado’s Shop-Window becomes a device of aseptic exhibition, isolated from the viewers, the passers by that walk the Belgrano Avenue in the City of Buenos Aires.

We invite artists to send their proposals to carry out their work remotely in the Belgrado’s Shop-Window. The proposals will be sent as instructions, and Casa Belgrado team will carry out the works based on the artistic instructions of the selected proposals, (subject to) the human and technical resources of the space.

FIELDS OF CREATION

Site Specific, transdisciplinary transit between contemporary performing practices, performance, movement, theater and its possible expansions, to sound, multimedia and audiovisual art. We embrace intersections and experiences in hybrid formats of composition and presentation close to the idea of post-discipline.

Social isolation – body – home – virus and pandemic – control and surveillance devices – posthumanism – interior- exterior – dystopian futures.

The selected projects will have three encounters via zoom before the realization of the piece-instructive:

  1. -General presentation
  2. -Technical and artistic direction meeting
  3. -Technical and artistic tunning

Important considerations:

The residency has no cost for the artist

The pieces will take place totally inside the Belgrado’s Shop-Window

The exhibition of the pieces can last between 3 hours and 4 days

The access of the public to the Shop-Window will not be allowed

The costs of necessary materials and additional resources are the responsibility of the artist.

The realization of the pieces includes the audiovisual recording of them and their divulgation on social media

All details and incidentals not mentioned in this convocatory will be resolved in dialogue with Casa Belgrado’s team.

The human and material resources will be available for the proposals

The proposals will be received until july 31

The selected projects will be announced the first week of August.

The selected projects will be exhibited during 2020. Doubts and queries to espaciobelgrado@gmail.com
