IV Encura: Open Call for a 3 months curatorial research residency
The call is free of charge and open to all curators and researchers who currently do not live and work in Catalonia. Deadline for the submission of applications is September 30, 2019, midnight, Spanish time, CEST time zone.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work either with artists residents at Hangar and/or other cultural agents, located in Catalonia, Madrid and/or another location in the Spanish territory. Therefore, the selected candidate will have the occasion to research the wider artistic context of Barcelona and Catalonia as well as to establish networks and dialogues with other local and national cultural agents.
It will be fundamental to justify the reason for developing the research in the selected territories, understanding the residency as a process of situated work in which immersion in the context makes the places, agents, present structures and relationships contribute coherence to the project.
We are aware that in rural or peripheral territories, that kind of situated work usually arises organically due to the needs or riches of the context. For this reason, the selection criteria include sensitivity to projects related to those places, although that does not exclude proposals located in other environments such as the urban ones.
Applicants should submit a proposal that fits into the general lines of work of Hangar and Curators' Network. As previously mentioned, the proposal should foresee a collaboration with cultural agents (4 maximum), already confirmed prior to the application, as well as a presentation of the outcomes in a format other than a classical exhibition.
The selected candidates are expected to realize the suggested project during the residency.
