Iterations # 2: Research and collaborative artistic production residency in Hangar

Hangar launches an open call to participate in the second iteration of the European project Iterations. The call will select two artists: one artist living in Barcelona and another artist living outside Barcelona. The selected artists will join a group of other four artists and together will develop a collaborative art project during a 15 days residency at Hangar. The residency will take place between the 31st of October and the 14th of November 2018.

In each iteration, a group of artists is invited to develop a collaborative artistic proposal, based on one or more of the results of the previous iteration. The first iteration of Iterations took place in Sicily within the framework of Trasformatorio. Prior to the residency in Barcelona, artists who participated in the first iteration will meet with the artists who will participate in the second one to give them the material that will be the starting point of the collaborative work that they will develop in Barcelona. The institutions participating in Iterations are Constant (Bruselas, Belgium), Esc (Graz, Austria), Trasformatorio (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) and Hangar.

Iterations is a European project committed to the future of artistic collaboration in networked digital contexts. Artists and multidisciplinary professionals come together to create speculative works that feed the imagination of possible ways of artistic collaboration.
