This residency has been established as a safe space where you can develop a project focusing on the topic of sustainability within your artistic practice. It doesn’t have to be built around the production of art – quite the opposite: we are looking for art thinking projects that provide a new approach to studio practice in times of climate crisis. You will be working in a temporary community which will include artists from around the world. What most interests us is sustainability as a method, not as a subject. Our overall goal is to prepare a manual for sustainable studio practice which we can use in the future.
MeetFactory is a non-profit international centre for contemporary art. Our mission is to foster a dialogue between individual genres and make current developments on the art scene accessible to the general public. We support original projects in the fields of visual art, theatre, and music, as well as interdisciplinary and experimental platforms. We aim to create a space in which art is alive and artists are present, enhancing a direct exchange between international artists and visitors, as well as between different fields and generations.
