Art and Citizenship

Projects rooted in reality, tackling political, cultural, social, economic or environmental issues.

Description of residency program
Some contemporary artistic practices take a critical look at events, decisions or actions that deeply transform our way of life. As a citizen/observer, the artist uses his or her tools to formulate ideas, doubts, needs and desires, and translate them into works of art. Through projects based on real facts (political, cultural, social, economic or environmental), we wish to highlight approaches that present another narrative of reality, and that, by taking some critical distance, open up room for reflection on people’s relations with each other and with their environment.
