Nomad (Thinking) Residency

General information

Brief description of organisation

NOMAD (THINKING) RESIDENCY is an artist-run art-residency without a fix place and target group. The project offers an undefined amount of irregularly determined residencies at rather unusual places, each time reacting to the existing context, aiming to discuss and stretch the idea of what an art residency is and can be.

Produced by General Performances

Brief description of residency program

GENERAL PERFORMANCES is a working place for generalists. It is a legal body and creative tool for artists who work cross-disciplinary and like to play with structure, production and administration. It can also be host for cooperative work in the field of spatial practice, aiming to create formats and concepts that help to reflect and reform the environment - an action field for those who do not want to be categorised as an artist or dancer or performer, but who are willing to put artistic ideas into practice.
