RESULT OF THE INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR ARTIST RESIDENCIES IN 2019
The number of proposals received has increased with respect to last year, rising to 539.
Six projects will be carried in the four categories included in the call for proposals: artistic projects (3), collaborative artistic projects (1), artistic research projects (1) and audiovisual projects (1).
Tabakalera has publicly announced the result of the call for proposals for residencies in 2019, for which 539 proposals were submitted, 39 more than last year: 377 in artistic projects, 26 in collaborative artistic projects, 55 in artistic research projects and 81 in audiovisual projects. From among these, a total of six proposals have been selected: three in the category of artistic projects and one in each remaining category.
The residencies are promoted by the Tabakalera Artist’s Space, whose main objective is to support the professionalisation of artists and/or cultural agents.
Regarding the jury, in the case of artistic projects, this was formed by Manuela Villa, Iñaki Garmendia and members of the Tabakalera team, including Ane Rodríguez. In the other categories it was composed of those named above in addition to Leire Vergara and María Palacios.
The aim of this call for proposals is to support the carrying out of artistic projects, regardless of their discipline, and three proposals have been selected, one proposed by an artist residing in the Basque Autonomous Community and two others by artists who live outside the BAC.
Claudia Lorenzo (Donostia-San Sebastian) is the local artist who has been selected with the project Mi casa envuelta which focuses on the “haiku” as an engine that links the subjectivity of Lorenzo with the objects of reality. With regard to the residents from outside the BAC, Maja Hodoscek (Slovenia), with We know more than we can tell, and Eszter Katalin (Austria), with I hold you, and you hold me, have been selected. The first of these, a visual artist, teacher and researcher, focuses her work on a file of pedagogical notes by teachers and surveys carried out in secondary schools. Katalin, meanwhile, will create an audiovisual work that will be based on the term “care” in the queer-feminist context.
COLLABORATIVE ARTISTIC PROJECT
This call for proposals is intended to give an artist residing in the Basque Autonomous Community the opportunity to invite an artist who lives outside the BAC to undertake a residency, with the aim of carrying out an artistic project in collaboration.
The jury, having identified an exceptional connection between the two candidates as well as outstanding creative potential, has decided that for 2019 the chosen project will be that of Sahatsa Jauregi (resident in Bilbao) and Juliá Panadés (Palma de Mallorca).
This call for proposals aims to support the carrying out of artistic research projects, understanding this as another phase of the creation process. During this process, the resident may propose a programme of activities that will be included in the Tabakalera programming.
Beyond emotional capital: towards alternative notions of the self and its emotions by Emilio Moreno (Netherlands) investigates and proposes alternative infrastructures and narratives for oneself and for one’s emotions.
This call for proposals aims to support the carrying out of audiovisual projects.
The project Roads to ruins carried out by Philip Widmann between Lebanon, France and Germany has been selected for this residency.
