JISER Reflexions Mediterrànies
Jiser Reflexions Mediterranies was born in 2004 in Tunis and jumped to Barcelona in 2005 promoted by a group of young artists and researchers. Their main goal is to encourage cultural exchange in between Mediterranean countries, focusing specially in artistic practices.
In 2010, Jiser built up a residency program of three months with two different locations: Barcelona and Tunis.
The programme objective is to allow artists to deepen their work and its perception into a different context. The artists learn and experiment with the new environment of the host city.
At the end of the residency there is an exhibition of the work done and the publication of a catalogue.
The workspace in Barcelona is located in the headquarters of the association Jiser in Poblenou and in the workshops of the Centre Cívic Fort Pienc. In Tunis the workspace is located at the Centre des Arts Vivants of Rades (15 km awya from Tunis) together with the accommodation space.
In Barcelona the artist is housed in a room in a shared flat. In Tunis, the living and working spaces are together in the Centre des Arts Vivants of Rades.
