Art Inside Out Residency in Falkenberg Municipality

Art Inside Out Residency in Falkenberg Municipality

The Art Inside Out residency Disruptions in utopia, land left behind aims at an artistic activation of one of three possible sites in the municipality of Falkenberg, Sweden. How can inclusive, speculative, and/or critical design and landscape architecture help us to re-think and re-shape land left behind? The residency holds a particular interest in design and landscape architecture.

Art Inside Out is offering a 12 week long residency for one international artist during 2020 with the following schedule: June 8th - 19 (research), August 17 – October 11 (production), October 12 – 25 (presentation). The artist can work individually or in collaboration with the chosen Swedish artist attending the residency.

The artist will receive 13 200 Euro (the artist is responsible to pay applicable taxes in his or her home country) for a 12 week long residency and a production budget of 3800 Euro. Art Inside Out will cover travel costs, and provide the chosen artist with accommodation and workspace. There will be public presentations of the artistic process in Falkenberg as well as in other places in Region Halland and Sweden during the residency period. The artistic process will be followed and documented in AIO Journal ( and in the printed AIO Magasin.

Design curator Helena Hertov from Rian Design Museum in Falkenberg and the landscape architect and city planner Hanna Smekal will together with Petra Johansson, artistic leader of Art Inside Out, be present during the residency period to support the artists’ creative processes.
