Open Call for German and French Artists
an• other here is a nomadic art residency, which aims to support artists, curators, and other art practitioners. Each edition happens in a new location, chosen for both historical and cultural singularities, regional ecosystem, and its distance from usual areas of creative activity.
This initiative – founded at the beginning of the pandemic – is led by Italian–French–German curator Livia Tarsia in Curia and Italian–German artist Lea Mugnaini. an• other here is committed to produce and disseminate projects that experiment artistically with and through the richness of what is geographically close to the residency – otherness in proximity.
The residency will take place between September - October 2022 in a house on the hills located in Montbrun-les-Bains (France). Two artists (one French and one German) will be selected. The accomodation contains a private studio and a bedroom, a shared kitchen, bathroom and toilet. The duration will be distributed as one month per artist. The organisation rewards the residents with artist and production fees. Working space, private bedroom, one round trip expenses are free of charge. After the residency period, each artist is warmly invited to leave an element, a trace of memory, from their time at an• other here. These leftovers will join the archive of the residency.
