Deadline : 8 December, 2006
Three artists will be
selected to live and work in Weimar for 4 months, starting in
February, June and October 2007
If we cast a glance at the
world, the global market capitalist economy seems to have
established itself for good. There is hardly a corner of the world
that is free of its dominion, and its success has precluded any
alternative form of organising production, distribution, and
consumption in our society. Every expression of opposition, protest,
or resignation toward the dominance of the prevailing situation is
immediately integrated into the mainstream as something colorful and
exotic. Outside of this last remaining idea from the laboratory of
possible societal models, there seems to be nothing but emptiness;
anything from the outside is assumed to be dangerous. But artists,
in particular, are often able to find a critical point of entry into
what is outside of our system; they tend to be more sensitive than
other people to the individual and collective longing for the
political and economic Other. And they continue to do so even after
they have fallen into desperation in the face of their (often
forced) realisation that an outside can only exist any longer in the
fantasy realm of art.

CHAMBRE BLANCHE - August 2007 to June 2008, Québec,
DEADLINE: December 22th 2006
Period: August 2007 to
CHAMBRE BLANCHE is an artist-run centre with a mandate to
promote installation and site- specific practices. Our residency
programme is an opportunity offered to the artist to place into
question the nature of artistic practice itself with regards to both
its conception and public reception. LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE is
particularly interested in works which, like works-in-progress,
consider time as a medium. During their residency, the selected
artists are invited to create a unique, ephemeral work, in the
context of an actual live laboratory.
At LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE a
residency lasts six weeks. During the 14 first days, the gallery is
used exclusively as a studio space for the artist. The doors open to
the public on the third week, allowing the visitors to come and meet
the artist at work. Without discouraging projects that aim at
attaining a final result (with a final piece), la chambre blanche is
particularly sensible to the process of exploration and
experimentation. Submitted projects must integrate installation and
in situ practices.
LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE offers:
proposal must include:
- an in situ residency of six weeks
- lodging at LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE
- $ 1750 (CAN) artist fees
- technical assistance
- transportation cost for artists from the North- East of
America (half for others)
- access to a woodworking shop and a computer lab
- access to the equipment and to the documentation centre
