KAIR Košice Artist in Residence is an international Artist-in-Residence program for artists from all over the world and out of all artistic disciplines and expressions. K.A.I.R. is strongly focused on the creation of international cooperation between the Slovak and foreign artists and art organizations. The NAZAR VOITOVYCH ART RESIDENCE (NVAIR) is an educational and artistic center with studios, recreation rooms, and exhibition hall in the small village of Travneve, of Zbarazh district, Ternopil region. NVAiR opened in 2017 with the aim to support the artistic creation and the development of the local community. From 2020 start an online residency practice to develop global communication and stay in touch with artists in any condition. The European Center for Art in Upper Bavaria is located on the outskirts of Freising in the Munich area, in a former sheep stable (SCHAFHOF). The location in the midst of nature, exceptional architecture, and a versatile cultural program make the Schafhof a center of contemporary art as well as a popular tourist destination. The activities of the Center for Art include two focus points: The Artist-in-Residence program and the Exhibition program. A wide range of Supporting programs completes the professional services. ARTIST IS ABSENT - This is an international program of virtual residencies for digital artists. The AIA program is the birthplace of new ideas and meanings for international dialogue through art. We focus on common issues and topics for dialogues about the digital art ecosystem. The name of the program reminds us of new algorithms and technical capabilities of tools for creating art. In the program, we look for the importance of the artist as a carrier of ideas and the weight of tools that bring new meaning to the process. The global condition of the last one and a half year had a significant impact on communication algorithms in all areas, and this has prompted many art projects to find a place online. Demand for tools has significantly improved their quality and expanded opportunities. And all this in turn made it possible to work more globally. In the course of the first experimental program of AIA residencies (Ukraine-Germany), we created a virtual experience with a hall for communication and 4 virtual projects, and most importantly, together with the first residents, we developed the structure of the program and communication for co-creation processes. It takes place in cooperation between art residences NVAIR (Ukraine), Schafhof (Germany), KAIR (Slovakia) and we still open to collaboration!
