Open call for Re-Directing: East Curatorial Seminar and Residency

Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art invites professionals such as curators, organizers, researchers and art managers to apply for a one-month-long residency.Re-Directing: East Curatorial Residency is a platform for carrying out research and meetings between curators, representatives of the most interesting grass-root initiatives, and people in charge of organizing artistic events from all over the world. It was launched in 2013, starting with the U–jazdowski residency programme. The notion of "re-directing" refers here to a need to facilitate collaborations between art initiatives which due to geopolitical conditions have not had many opportunities to collaborate thus far.

Re-Directing: East Curatorial Residency is a peer-learning workshop, a curatorial seminar, an extended site exploration, and a research opportunity for groups of four to six individuals together with the U–jazdowski team and local participants. This curatorial residency is a platform for developing a possible working collaboration with the U–jazdowski and other parties concerned in the years to come.

The participants are expected to share their experience and understanding of respective artistic and socio-political contexts, as well as to prepare themselves for participation in this year's exploration of the topic: "hospitality."

Submission Deadline: February 25, 2018

The results will be announced by: March 18th, 2018

Selection will be based on the professional excellence of the applicant’s work and their plans for sharing the benefits of the exchange with artists and institutions in their home country /site of activity. Due to the programme agenda, aimed at creating collaboration opportunities beyond the existing cultural policies, applicants must have sufficient command of English to function independently and communicate with the U–jazdowski’s staff and other residents.

What the program offer:

  • Individual living space connected with working space
  • A grant of 4000 PLN / approx. 1000 USD
  • Reimbursement of travel costs
  • Organising a customized programme of lectures, presentations and study visits in and outside Warsaw
  • Organising the final seminar including participants’ presentations created collaboratively during the residency
