CREATIVE BOLDNESS, RISK AND INNOVATION
expand your artistic practice
how long can I stay : 3 weeks
when can I come : between May and November 2020
does my art practice fittin ?
We are looking for cultural and artistic diversity thus we are encouraging creative individuals in all fields to apply: visual artists, musicians, writers, theorists, dancers…
can we come as an artist duo (or group) ?
You can; however, you need to apply individually and you’ll be both/all assigned to a different artist partner.
what else do I need to know about the MiXER programme?
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.
As a MiXER guest, you will have uninterrupted, self-directed work time, with a 24/7 studio access; but you can expect slight pressure, because of the book publishing deadline toward the end of the residency.
SET-UP AND OUTCOME
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; for this task, artists are (if needed) provided with mentorship and assistance, throughout their stay.
MiXER originates from the urge of opening up new channels for communication, and connecting people threw creativity.
- 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.
OTHER EVENTS and EXPECTATIONS TOWARDS THE ARTISTS
Each residency at D’CLINIC starts with an art-dinner followed by a “meet the new artist” event, organised at one of our partner institutions; here artists are asked to share (have a presentation) their artistic experiences with the peer group and other interested crowd.
we do our best to promote the idea of collaboration (and the created artists’ books) also outside the four walls of our studio:
