Residency at Frans Masereel Centrum

Frans Masereel Centrum, one of Europe’s biggest print art centres, invites artists, writers and researchers to apply for its 2020 residency opportunities. Residency periods take place between January 6 and September 11, 2020 and last 6 weeks (general and research residency) or 4 weeks (essay residency). Frans Masereel Centrum, located amidst the peaceful Flemish countryside, is a print laboratory and platform that not only propels the graphic and visual arts towards refreshing ideas and interpretations, but also lays the foundations for international artist communities and networks. From intaglio to screenprints, from wood carvings to digital stencils and lasercuts: the recently renovated and greatly expanded Frans Masereel Centrum ateliers can inspire and accommodate any visual artist – photogravure buffs and risograph novices alike. FMC’s atelier experts will gladly assist you with workshops and guidance, customised to your artistic project.

Frans Masereel Centrum is also a knowledge hub and exhibition space with international allure. It offers writers, critics and researchers the necessary stimuli and calm atmosphere to delve into, for instance, the links between the graphic arts and other art forms, whether by leisurely conversations with other artists-in-residence or by making use of FMC’s sizeable library.

Application deadline for the General, Research and Essay Residency is June 2, 2019. Art universities are welcome to apply for a residency as well with deadline May 31, 2019. FMC offers them one or two week stays or advanced ten-day masterclasses about the future of print (art). Applications can be found on their website.
