Are you a curator?
A writer, poet, playwright or graphic novelist?
An artist working mostly with text and/or concepts?
Within our well-established TRACTOR platform, we opened a new initiative just for you: TRACTOR-TEXT designed for research, experimentation, and play on new ideas, text, and words.
The program is designed for anyone working predominately with text (in any form); traditionally or experimentally. As well as curators or researchers who have new, brilliant research-based exhibition and/or project proposal or simply want some time off to finish up a long started assignment.
DURATION OF RESIDENCY
max. 7 weeks (preferably 3 or 4 weeks)
DISCIPLINES, WORK EQUIPMENT, AND ASSISTANCE
TRACTOR-TEXT is open to all artists, art theorists working essentially with text or concepts is one way or another. This includes also curators who’d like to explore the local art scene and set up an exciting exhibition as a conclusion of their residency stay.
as a TRACTOR-TEXT guest, you’ll enjoy all the same benefits as any other TRACTOR resident; however, you’ll also get your own private live/work space within our artists’ house.
EXPECTATIONS TOWARDS THE ARTIST
Each residency at D’CLINIC starts with a “meet the new artist” event, where you’ll be asked to share your artistic experiences with the peer group and other interested crowds.
Artists who stay three or more weeks are offered the opportunity to show their work within a project-exhibition at the end of the residency.
However, each guest at D'CLINIC also has a possibility to show/share work threw open studio events, presentations, readings, screening, workshops, lectures… you name it.
to apply you’ll need to fill in the provided online application form and provide the following info:
