FOSTERING CREATIVE BOLDNESS, RISK AND INNOVATION
Are you looking for excitement?
Would you like to expand your creative practice?
Do you have enough courage to work collaboratively?
MiXER is a cross-disciplinary collaboration experiment or as we call it “a playground” where artists from diverse art disciplines and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to engage, share methodologies and inspire each other. With the task of working in pairs artists are given the opportunity to regenerate their creative dynamism, exchange and develop new ideas; experiment with no fear of failure and thus assess their own artistic processes – learning valuable insights from other art forms
MiXER urges dialogue and interchange of ideas and should be seen as an opportunity to try out different types of working processes. With a focus on experimental research and discussion.
We hope to foster an innovative interplay with an inter-disciplinary character.
This programme provides artists with a spirit of re-vivification, reformed sense of purpose and confidence in their own creativity and is open to artists working in any creative media who are not troubled by risk and experimentation in the creation of their work
- to encourage a personalized and independent artistic correspondence
- to inspire new aesthetic realities
- to stimulate artistic and cultural exchange
- to blend the distances between old and new technologies and/or artistic genres content
MiXER is an independent and flexible three-weeks programme with a structured outcome. The selected artists from diverse artistic disciplines are paired up to work collaboratively on a new body of work. Furthermore, their task is to assemble an ARTISTS’ BOOK covering the leading aspects of their collaboration.
- The residency ends with a PUBLIC PRESENTATION of the completed project.
- The designed ARTIST’S BOOK is published as a limited edition artifact;
- all but two copies of the published book remain to the participating artists.
Each residency period starts with a so-called MEET & GREET evening, where the participating artists will be asked to share their work, their process and their vision with the peer group and the interested public.
once a month we open the studio for a so-called CRITIQUE EVENING // an opportunity for artists to present their ongoing/in-progress / work and get a first handed response from the public as well as invited art professionals.
The selected artists are paired up to work collaboratively on a new body of work. Furthermore, their task is to assemble an ARTISTS’ BOOK covering the leading aspects of their collaboration.
At the closing exhibition their work is presented to the public and their book is published.
the published books are also promoted outside the four walls of our studio
