In what ways exactly, artists have benefits from residency programs? How mobility functions as an agent for creating a future European identity? Is residency nomadism model for future artists? Where is the line between tourism and escapism in today’s residency culture? What is considered production in residency programs? Is residency a factory, a place for leisure, or slacking? Is residency time a paid vacation for precarious artists, or paid time to concentrate on own work between real life jobs?

Open talks on “Residency culture” will evaluate experiences of artists and organizers of
residency programs. Workshop will examine cultural, social and political impacts of “residency culture” and its primary goal to foster cultural mobility and exchange. It will focus on residency expectations, urge for artists’ harvesting and digesting experiences, and delivering synthesized concepts.

Opening Our Closed Shops
Artist exchange program “Opening Our Closed Shops” derived from Academy Schloss Solitude program, aiming to develop a new model of artists exchange on the institutional level in different European regions, connect to other centers in Central and Eastern Europe breaking stereotypes of the (un)expected when it comes to Central and Eastern Europe.

Since 2008 the program “Opening Our Closed Shops” developed bilateral exchange between artists of the Academy Schloss Solitude and partner organizations in Warsaw, Budapest, Bucharest, Sofia and Novi Sad, and multilateral exchange of artists between partner organizations and countries that have not been able to collaborate in the field of contemporary art practice so far.

Quarterly artists visits are realized through “Opening Our Closed Shops” program which enables creative work, experience exchange, artistic production and promotion of artists. This program is significant because it applies to all disciplines in the field of contemporary culture and art, and makes possible the exchange of artists in all disciplines (film, video, photography, dramaturgy, directing, design, painting, graphic print, sculpture, multimedia, music (performers, composers) literature, dance, etc.).
