Publication Residencies Exchange

CRA - Matadero Madrid

The publication Residencies Exchange aims to show the increasing diversity of the currently existent artist residencies. In this scenario, the dialogue between its organizers is essential to enable mutual learning and improvement, weighing in a critical way the work itself.

Through this compendium of texts and dialogues, "Residencies Exchange" delves into issues around 4 key concepts in the frame of artist residencies: mobility, reciprocity, academia and hospitality.

For each section, we've counted with the contribution of international artist residency's managers:


Sergi Botella (Hangar
Dina Kafafi (Townhouse)


Clara Pallí (1646)
Marita Muukkonen / Ivor Stodolsky (Artists at risk)


Els van Odijk (Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten)
Manuela Villa Acosta (Centro de Residencias Artísticas, Matadero Madrid)


Ika Sienkiewicz-Nowacka (Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art
Dominic van den Boogerd (De Ateliers)


Manuela Villa Acosta / Amador Fernández-Savater
Andrea Pacheco (FelipaManuela)
Martinka Bobrikova / Oscar de Carmen (Nomad AIR)



Residencies Exchange is an editorial initiative by hablarenarte made possible with the support of Centro de Residencias Artísticas, Matadero Madrid. The publication came about as a result of a meeting amongst artistic residencies in Madrid, within the framework of the art fair Estampa through PICE, the mobility programme of AC/E.

Activity organised with the support of the Madrid City Council's grant for contemporary creation and national and international mobility (2018-21).
