Get in touch with mother earth living and creating art in a beautiful cavehouse.

Description of residency program
artnground is offering to international artists the oportunity to investigate living and working in an cavehouse. This work can be connected with this experience of living in a mountain or focused on the topic borders or marginal sites. 

Duration of residency
The duration of the residency can be from 2 weeks to 1 month. We are also open for special longer term stays but then we have to check the project firstly. 

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
The Open Call is directed to contemporary art practice working with a topic of borders
and marginal sites. Every discipline from plastic art, visual art, photography,
performance, public art, urban art, music, design, sound art, net-art, ceramic art, to any
other not listed interdisciplinary medium.

with max 8 MG, with a CV (1 sheet A4). A Project Statement of max 400 words. Also a
graphic/visual documentation of previous works, plus notice of cohabitating/working with other artists or travellers that you would like to be accepted.

artnground will evaluate and select the proposals accordingly. We will also help in any
way we can to get specific grants if they are applicable. After a decision has been made
the results are published on the artnground webpage and the process of inscription will
be finished with a contract.

We are also looking for an open studio and presentation of the artistic process whilst in
residence. During the residence artnground endeavours to support the artist and
his/her/their project, by sharing it as widely as possible. 

The accommodation is in the cavehouse of artnground. The room is private but the rest can be shared with other artists.

If 2 artists come together they could share a room. 2 weeks for 500 Euros. And for 1 month 800 Euros.

We write a invitation letter so the artist could get a grant in his home country. 

Expectations towards the artist
We expect from the artist a selfprogrammed working. We are willed to help to plan and give advices. 

The artist can give (optional) an Open Studio or Artist talk. We will organize this event for him.
