artists-in-residence project - call for applications
Six artists will be on the move from one city to the next for eight weeks, in each of which they will stay for two weeks and do some research and work. They are asked to investigate the urban structures of the cities from this point of view. Four very different cities have been chosen for the air_cruise 2006: Leipzig, Ústí nad Labem, Dunajváros and Graz.How is political, economical, social, and cultural development shown in urban structures and how is it characterised by the citizens? How much does a city reveal of its specific character if you stay there only for a little while? Can the artist make visible developments, structures and characters and/or visions that lead to a change? To use this situation offers various possibilities that shall lead to a work of art that will be shown in the exhibition at Emil Filla Gallery in Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic, and will be published in the general catalogue of the project.
