Résidences de Création BCN>ALG>TNS 2017

The project Résidences de Création BCN>ALG>TNS 2017 aims at initiating forms of artistic mobility in the Mediterranean region and at supporting artistic productions engaged in the reactivation of local cultural heritage, via the methodology of itinerant artistic residencies. The project articulates in four steps: three artistic residencies during which selected visual artists will spend two months in one of the host cities: Barcelona, Tunis and Algiers, researching and producing with the support of local experts; a final restitution in the form of a publication and a collective exhibition in Barcelona by the end of 2017.

A first phase was developed in 2016 in Barcelona, during which the three selected artists, Violeta Ospina, Lyes Karbouai 'LMNT' and Nourhene Ghazel, developed artistic projects interrogating the cultural landscape of Barcelona.

Between March and May 2017, selected artists Bárbara Sánchez, Houssem Mokeddem and Slim Gomri will spend two months in Tunis, focusing on local cultural and architectural heritage, and investigating ways for reactivating them both aesthetically and historically. A similar format will be developed in Algiers, with three new artists, spending the months of September and October in Algiers. Each residency will conclude with a public presentation and exhibition of the results.

Overall, the project aims to:

  • Support the mobility of artists in the Mediterranean region;
  • Promote and sustain their work and practice, by making them working in new cultural contexts;
  • Create a sustainable network of cultural actors and institutions in dialogue in the region;
  • Enact a process of reactivation of cultural heritage by means of artistic practice.
