IT HAS BEEN DEBATED HOW MUCH OF HIS/HER TIME AN ARTIST SHOULD ALLOCATE TO PURE, SELFISH, NON-PROFIT-MAKING PRODUCTION. WELL, D’CLINIC WILL INDEED NOT RESOLVE THIS DILEMMA. ANYHOW, AS AN
ARTIST-FOCUSED PLACE WE ARE HERE TO GRANT YOU WITH THE LUXURY OF UNINTERRUPTED WORKING TIME FOR REALIZATION OF YOUR CREATIVE AMBITIONS.

WHO WE ARE

Founded in January 2012 D’CLINIC is an artist-run space designed to deliver a supportive community where artists can focus on their own creative practice and/or research, share skills and knowledge, interact or collaborate in a vibrant multidisciplinary environment free from constraint, harshness or formality.

D’CLINIC is a space where creative experiments should be made; it strives to provide a meeting place where the guest artists are offered an opportunity to participate in an activity that is both geographically and conceptually removed from their usual studio practice.

We believe the art-creation process is something sacred and thus we assist our artists as much as possible in order for them to concentrate solely on their production. Artists are enabled to work intensively and independently in an encouraging and intimate environment.

  • WE ARE HERE TO:

  • allow creative self-development, experimentation and artistic innovation,
  • support the development of new work,
  • challenge your creative thinking,
  • foster cultural dialogue and / or exchange,
  • facilitate professional development opportunities


D’CLINIC supports both established, mid-career as well as emerging arts practitioners; regardless of whether visual artist, musician, curator, theorist, writer,…

We provide few different artists-in-residence frameworks (or as we call them research-platforms) for you to choose from – depending on what you wish to achieve while spending time in this extravagant (East)European region :

LOCATION

Located in the west of Hungary, on the banks of the Zala River (Good, it might not look like a river now, but it was, a long time ago), close to the Slovenian and Austrian border and only 220 kilometres (137 miles) south-west of Budapest (by road), in the dashing city of Zalaegerszeg. Famous for its natural beauty, rich cultural heritage, and laid-back lifestyle, Zalaegerszeg offers an inspirational setting for intensive, introverted exploration, experimentation and/or creation within contemporary arts practices.

 

WHEN THE CITY MEETS NATURE


Our STUDIO is placed in the very centre of the town, in the former Szolgáltatóház (“Service House”) – one of the most iconic buildings of the Socialist era in the city, (a true time machine) and few minutes walk from other important historical & cultural spots of the town; giving our residents an opportunity to recapture the spirit of east-European Socrealism (Socialist Realism ) from the late 20th century.

D’CLINIC accommodation is to be found at the edge of the city centre, only 15 minutes walk from the studio. The offered house comes with a cosy yard and providing a chance to escape the daily routine.

HOW TO APPLY

after selecting your preferred research-platform, follow the associated online application link provided

Applicants are expected to give a clear vision/ idea about their stay in the residency. Your plans however do not have to be ‘engraved to stone’ so you may change them later if you want. Overall artistic freedom is one of our key values and all our residents will have it. The information is required for us to make sure we are able to provide the relevant expertise and facilities for your project. But also because, we’d like to keep the place a CREATIVE CENTER and prevent it from turning into a “holiday resort”.
