2024 Theme: Transitions and Migration
We are pleased to announce an open call to participate in a unique artist residency program focused on the theme of transitions and migration. This residency provides an opportunity for artists, cultural workers, scientists, scholars and researchers to explore and engage with the multifaceted aspects of migration and transformation, encompassing not only human movement but also the interconnectedness of all living beings.
Migration serves as an integral aspect of the human experience, exerting influence upon cultures, societies, and ecosystems. However, it is important to recognize that migration extends beyond human movement alone. When examining transitions and migration through the lens of humans and beyond-humans, we encompass the processes of movement, change, and adaptation experienced by all living beings in their intricate interactions and interconnectedness. We acknowledge that humans do not exist as solitary actors but rather as integral components of a complex web of relationships that encompass animals, plants, ecosystems, and the environment.
In light of this understanding, we are delighted to announce a residency program that aspires to explore migration in its broadest context. By examining the movement and adaptation of all living beings, including animals, plants, microorganisms, and even ideas, we aim to capture the essence of these transitions and migrations in both the human and natural realms. Our primary focus is to highlight the magnificence, resilience, and vulnerability of our planet. We warmly invite artists, cultural workers, scientists, scholars, and researchers to delve into the intricate complexities of migration. By considering factors such as climate change, displacement, diaspora, urbanization, colonization, technological advancements, and the entanglements between human and non-human migrations, we hope to shed light on the multifaceted nature of these processes.
Through our collective exploration, we seek to illuminate the interconnectedness of all beings and the dynamic processes that shape our world. It is our sincere aspiration that this endeavor will inspire empathy, understanding, and stewardship of our environment. Together, we hope to embark on a transformative journey that celebrates the interplay between humans and beyond-humans, fostering a deep appreciation for the interdependence and shared destiny that binds us all.
