Open call for a visual arts residency with focus on media arts

Bozar – Centre for Fine Arts Brussels and the Goethe-Institut, together with iMAL in Belgium and Cairotronica in Egypt, organize a Media Arts residency programme in spring 2022. We are looking for 4 artists from the Arab world and from Europe to engage in a 2-week residency in Brussels (Belgium). The programme is composed of 2 sessions, from which the selected participants can choose a preference: one in March 2022 (14-27.03.22), and one in May 2022 (16-29.05.22).

The residency programme focuses on prototyping, experimenting, and exchanging ideas with fellow artists from different backgrounds.

The participants will be given access to iMAL’s infrastructure as well as its Fablab, which philosophy is centered around knowledge sharing, DYI culture and open source communities. Artists will be invited to work alongside iMAL’s team, with a shared goal: to produce and experiment autonomously, building on each other’s expertise. Therefore, artists will receive a basic support but are expected to have a minimum knowledge of available machine use.

This visual arts residency programme is part of the project Halaqat organised by the Goethe-Institut together with Bozar - Centre for Fine Arts Brussels and co-funded by the European Union.

Deadline for the application: 21 Oct.’21.

Please note that only selected artists will get a reply by the week of 22 November at the latest.

The European project Halaqat is implemented by the Goethe-Institut in collaboration with Bozar - Centre for Fine Arts Brussels. Halaqat is co-funded by the European Commission (under the designation: EU-LAS CULTURE), the Goethe-Institut and Bozar. ​​​​​​
