CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR A RESIDENCY GRANT

 Biella, Italy

Residency period: September 6th – November 9th, 2015

 

 

UNIDEE – University of Ideas http://www.cittadellarte.it/unidee is a multifaceted educational platform investigating the relationship between art and the public sphere through a new program of weekly residential modules based on interdisciplinary research, knowledge sharing and experience exchange, alongside a series of artists’ residency projects.

 

The program, developed by Cecilia Guida in collaboration with Juan Esteban Sandoval and under the general direction of Cittadellarte’s director Paolo Naldini, was launched on 4th May 2015. The 2015 program focuses on three broad concepts, temporality, responsibility, participation, encompassing art history, activism, commons, politics, territorial transformation, musicology, visual narratives, social imagery, relational systems, rituals, social cooking, urban space (etc.).

 

The structure of UNIDEE – University of Ideas is articulated through four types of activities investigating the relationship between art and the public sphere:

 

  • Weekly residential modules taking place at Cittadellarte. These are open to professionals as well as the general public and are held by mentors who are experts in the 2015 program’s three broad thematic areas (temporality, responsibility, participation), which will be examined in depth from artistic, historical, geographical, philosophical, political, economic, anthropological, sociological, mediological, juridical and architectural points of view.
  • Seminar modules taking place at Cittadellarte and/or at external partner centers.
  • Residency programs for international artists at Cittadellarte.
  • Connective Residency at Cittadellarte.
