Guided by the open question “Where are we now?”, the residency invites artists to reflect on the particularities of the Euregio-Meuse-Rhine region and its landscapes. The artists are invited to explore new perspectives on the particular urban and rural territories in the border triangle. Responding to the various landscapes, their borders, their history and their possible futures.
The project may address or reflect themes such as sustainability, ecology, post-industrialism, transcultural dialogue, cultural heritage or geopolitics specific to the region. The focus of the residency is on research and developing a new work in this context.
The artist is invited to give a public presentation of their practice at IKOB in Eupen and at Greylight Projects in Heerlen in the beginning of the residency as an introduction to the interested members of the cultural field.
The residency period will take place at Greylight Projects in Heerlen, with a final public presentation at Greylight Projects as well as at IKOB in Eupen in the context of the performance festival in early September 2023. The artist(s) will be guided by the teams of both Greylight Projects and IKOB throughout the residency.
