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

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. Ramdom aims to create a narration of a land, a mapping of Capo di Leuca that can be used both by the people who lives there and by an occasional traveller.

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.
Ramdom Association is looking for four artists under 35 for a long term residence project.
Artists will be guests for six months at Ramdom headquarter in Gagliano del Capo (LE): laStation, an artistic and cultural space at the first floor of a train station.
The residences will focus on a new project based on human and natural landscape. In addition to their own production, the artists will be in charge of many activities, workshops, lectures, classes, etc. They will meet curators, journalists, art critics and authorities.

The residency will take place in Gagliano del Capo, a warm village caressing the Mediterranean sea. The workplace in the last train station on the south-east side of Italy, Lastation is the hub for the artistic and cultural promotion of Capo di Leuca. It is a landmark for the local community and international public: it is a house of innovative ideas and a gravitational center for people who would like to pass their free time in a place culturally and artistically active. Facing the countryside, easily reachable form anywhere. Let your ideas flow sorrounded by nature and exploring the colours of the most amazing sunset.
