Building a Local Artists-at-Risk (AR) Residency Network


Thursday 26th. 16h - 18h

This is a workshop by and for all who want to work with artists, critics, curators and theorists who have to flee their country of origin. These art practitioners are “at risk” for a reason – they are living on the rough edges of the permissible in their home countries: artistically, culturally, socially, politically. Building a local AR-Residency network involves artistic, activist, legal, psychological and curatorial partners and infrastructures. Looking at different models of how this is being organised – from AR-Safe Haven Residencies in Helsinki and Berlin to Athens and now Madrid – the participants will learn and contribute to building a sustainable local model as part of a new mondial network.
