General information

Brief description of organisation

Ramdom is involved with artistic and cultural design and production. The association promotes new creative practices and innovative languages of communication, interacting with citizens and public, private, national and international organisations.

Founded in 2011 at the tip of Italy’s heel, Ramdom creates and provides training in contemporary art and promotes mobility through masterclass, workshops, exhibitions and residencies.

In September 2011 and 2013 Ramdom realized “DEFAULT, Masterclass in residence” in Lecce. For ten days twenty artists and ten international guests debated the topics of the city and regeneration.

Some of the projects discussed at these meetings were later realized. The Masterclass ran alongside a rich programme of events.

In 2014 Ramdom launched the programme “Investigating the extreme land”. Artists, curators, culture professionals and citizens are analysing and reflecting on and within marginal contexts through study and artistic production.

Brief description of residency program

Based at the first floor in the last railway station still active in south-east Italy, Ramdom is an interdisciplinary project that supports experimental educational formats (DEFAULT) and research projects on the topic of the so-called Extreme lands (Investigation of the Extreme Lands).

Experiencing a geographically and anthropologically peculiar place is a fundamental part of the research itself. The Residency is in this sense a fundamental tool to start an autonomous or guided reflection on specific topics.

We are extremely happy to announce that with the new residencey plan, the opportunity to reach us and share a path with we will stay open and available the whole year.

Ramdom has always supported the research for artists through projects of various kinds (Default; Investigation of the Extreme Lands) that have have been realized during the years.
From now on the research and residencies plan expands throughout the year and is open to professionals from all disciplines: artists, curators, researchers, writers, anthropologists, philosophers, linguists, architects, urban planners, geographers, professionals of scientific disciplines and hikers.

In addition to Lastation and the use of equipment that already exist, we provide three possible options.
