Ikob Artist residency

In collaboration with Borderland Residencies, IKOB – Museum für Zeitgenössische Kunst launches an open call for a three-month artist residency in Eupen, Belgium (September – November 2024). We are looking for proposals that seek to use this time and space to develop a project on the theme of the SUPERNATURAL.

Departing from an open understanding of the supernatural and its possible interpretations, the residency invites artists to connect with the region through an exploration of the unseen, the mystical, and the otherworldly. We are looking for projects that aim for a direct engagement with local (hi)stories, the natural environment or geographical particularities through the lens of the supernatural.

The residency offers the opportunity for an artist to broaden their practice through the development of new research and to expand their network as part of the Borderland Residencies framework. We are looking for an artist who can benefit from this specific opportunity and context.

Deadline: 14.07.2024 (midnight), results communicated by email shortly after.

You can find more details about the residency and how to apply here. We look forward to receiving your submissions!

ABOUT BORDERLAND RESIDENCIES
Borderland Residencies is a Euregional network of residencies at art institutions. It is a joint initiative of artist residencies in the border area of the Rhine-Meuse. The Borderland programme supports the members’ activities by organising multi-day field trips for artists from all the participating residencies, through meetings with curators and institutions from the region and with a public programme including lectures, presentations and workshops. The programme offers participating artists the opportunity to forge contacts on both sides of the border, with both fellow artists and institutions. The field trips also focus on broader themes in the region, such as energy production, agricultural transition and the aging population. borderland-residencies.eu/
