Open Call Residency for Artistic Research Projects 2019 | Tabakalera - Donostia / San Sebastián

Open Call Residency for Artistic Research Projects 2019

The aim of this international call is to support the development of artistic research projects that will be formalised with a three-month residency and the development of the programme of activities in Tabakalera throughout 2019.  The residency and the programme of activities can be interspersed, if the resident considers it appropriate for the development of the project.

It is a process that must be carried out in collaboration with the department responsible for developing Tabakalera’s public programmes. Thus, the public programme proposed will be part of Tabakalera’s programme of activities, in the form of symposiums, conferences, talks or workshops open to the public interested in taking part.

During the 2018-2019 two-year period, by means of its programme, Tabakalera proposes as the epicentre the idea of exercise with the title Ariketak: la segunda respiración (Exercises: the second breathing). A notion that refers to all the procedures that aim towards improvement in each new action for those carrying them out. The The Great Conversation (for further information please, visit Tabakalera´s website) congress functioned as the precursor to the project, gathering voices that came from critical theory, artistic practices, sports or pedagogy. The aim of this first activity focused on thinking about and discussing the ability of culture as a tool with the capacity for personal and collective transformation.

Although the research residency must not specifically deal with the conceptual line, we will value the proposals that are susceptible of integrating, coexisting with or complementing any of the possibilities it fosters.

This call is open to artists or cultural agents living in Basque Autonomous Community, as well as national and international. One project will be selected from all the proposals received.
