VDF16-AIR-ENG

The residency  is addressed to artists and curators, regardless of age, gender or nationality.
We are particularly interested in emerging or professional artists and curators, whose researches demonstrate a coherence with the concept of Condominium-Museum and its guidelines, or more in general, with the thematic that Kaninchen-Haus has examined over the course of its history.
i.e:

  • Action and artwork to be realized in the common spaces of the Condominium-Museum (hall, garden, terrace, five floors, stairs) as well as cultural activities able to engage with the community of the Condominium and/or the neighborhood, enabling new relations and dialogues. By way of example, they could be: paintings, graphics, light or interactive installations, audiovisuals experiments or films, performances, action in the garden, and in general, participatory and relational activities, able to forecast since the beginning, the possibility of being modified, developed by the live interactions and exchanges with the communities.
  • Projects addressed to the local community, the neighborhood, the district of Porta Palazzo, or a specific target located in the city of Turin
  • Workshop or seminar proposal
  • Project development about the relation between art and new technologies
