Sweet Home 2018: Open Call
"My home is your home"
Sweet Home is a research residency programme in domestic spaces that gives value and delivers new ways of doing and relating to each other by sharing our day-to-day life. We seek to create effective and affective ties between artists, curators, researchers and the rest of cultural agents, transforming our homes into places of encounter that give born to new practices from shared intimacy.
The topic of the present edition is nonproductivity.
Who and Where: The residencies take place in the private homes of local cultural agents who live and work in Madrid. The open call is addressed to artists, researchers, curators and cultural managers working on the field of visual and performing arts.
