Each artist should apply with an individual proposal for the residency, based on this proposal, interviews will be held with the first round of pre-selected artists. The curatorial partners will select six artists to be coupled up in three collaboration teams based on their field of practice and artistic motivation in the virtual residency.
The four residency partners Espace Croisé (FR), LODO (ARG), Work it Out (CH/DE) and Re-Connect Online Performance Festival (Internet) will strive to feature, promote, and distribute the artists’ projects at different possible levels and make the artists’ work available to the public in different virtual formats.
The virtual residencies will take place between January - April 2021. The six selected artists will get a grand of 700 euros as compensation. The coupled artists are expected to meet virtually on a regular basis.
