Camargo/ Frac/ Goethe
Call for applications: collaborative residency in the Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolitan Area
Through this joint interdisciplinary residency program, the Camargo Foundation in Cassis, the Fonds Régional d’Art Contemporain Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (Frac), and the Goethe-Institut in Marseille come together to support one international project led by a team of artists and scholars. The selected team, composed of two to four members, will be hosted both at Frac and Camargo in 2021/2022.
This Program focuses on the different dimensions of the Marseille metropolitan area. The newly established Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolitan Area is located on the Mediterranean Sea with a mix of urban areas and unique natural sites. As the second largest metropolitan area in France, it has nearly 2 million inhabitants in 92 municipalities, with large inequalities. This Program offers the possibility of a joint residency in two art organizations located in two very different parts of the metropolitan area. The focus of the selected project should involve some artistic research taking into account the two different settings/territories of the residency.
Purpose of the Residency
The main purpose of the residency is to stimulate relations and cultural exchanges between scholars and artists of the Mediterranean Basin and Europe, in order to support the development of projects at the interface between scientific research and the arts with the aim of a common production. In their proposals, applicants should therefore clearly demonstrate their interest in interdisciplinary crossovers and exchanges between arts and sciences, on the basis of their research and itineraries.
The residents will benefit from the professional setting, the support, and the network of the involved organizations.
The residency will also include a public presentation of the working process or outcome of the residency, which will take place at each of the two residency centers (Camargo and Frac).
The residency is open to teams of artists in all creative disciplines and researchers/critics/curators working with experimental or artistic approaches. Applicants must be professionals actively working in the arts.
At least one group member must be a resident of Germany.
Preference will be given to teams that include a member from a Mediterranean country (including the Region Provence-Alpes-Côte-D’Azur, European countries, as well as countries of the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean regions).
The team can be composed of two to four members. The team should apply with a joint proposal and artists or researchers applying as individuals are not eligible.
