Until July 15, 2007, international artists from all disciplines can submit concepts for installation-based works discussing the manifold issues of migration.
Residency, residence, resident – habitation, life, resident in, residence
A state of personal and collective destabilization, chaotic change, emptiness…
... clearly an extensive topic – what will happen before and after a stay or
the issuing of a residence permit? Who [or what] entitles a person to settle
down somewhere else and what motivates people to do so? What inner processes
drive people to change?
The project Virtual Residency calls for an artistic migration and provides places of residence to the resulting ideas, concepts and images in the World
Wide Web and at real places in the form of exhibitions in Germany, Poland,
France and Luxembourg.
All the artistic concepts, which have been submitted, will be presented at the
four exhibitions. About ten works [at each location] will be realized as media
installations in the different institutions. All necessary material will be
paid for by the Virtual Residency. A comprehensive and multilingual catalogue
of each exhibition will be published.
Projects can be registered at http://www.virtual-residency.net, where also further infromation on the project in English, German, French and Polish can be found.
