AIR Algarve Museu Zer0

General information

Brief description of organisation

On the initiative of the Instituto Lusíada de Cultura, a non-profit making organization founded in 1982 and declared of public interest in 1991, a proposal was put forward to create a museum dedicated to digital art. The project would involve restoring a significant part of the premises of the Agricultural Co-Operative in Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo, in a well- known rural part of the Algarve, between the barrocal and the uplands.
As our main concerns with regard to Zero Museum’s future programming, we can highlight those relating to its future artistic content, the commitment to establish a programming of events and initiatives which correspond to activities of a regular nature and also those with a “variable geometry”(from major international events to initiatives dedicated almost exclusively to the area, its people and culture), as well as the high demands in respect of the technical and technological resources to be involved in the future.

Brief description of residency program

We are preparing a residence programme with V2, receiving artists from Netherland and Portugal (next residence), in order to develop a common creative project, for next years, on digital arts.
