Eine Idee – mehrere Projekte – eine Kooperation: Die Stadt Regensburg ist einer der Projektträger des DANUBE ART LABs mit der Projektidee „Hidden Places & Creative Spaces“. Wir freuen uns, dass wir in Regensburg zwei gleiche „verlorene Orte“ untersuchen.
Within the scope of the INTERREG project „Danube Culture Platform Creative Spaces of the 21st Century“ the City of Regensburg in cooperation with the association donumenta e.V. announces AiR residencies in Regensburg, Germany, during the summer and autumn of 2017.
We invite for applications for „Hidden Places & Creative Spaces“ residencies from professional artists of all disciplines with an established and demonstrable interest in temporary site-specific interventions by providing them with studio space and accommodation for one month. From visual arts and architecture, through new media and performing arts, to video, film and photography.
The AiR programme DAL DANUBE ART LAB is assumed to flow into the realization of site-specific interventions which will be developed and proposed by the artists during their stay in Regensburg. Together with the artistic production process the works accomplished will be documented and published in different suitable media (print or digital). The artists are expected to develop and complete their project ideas, which can be implemented within the frame of the INTERREG „CultPlatForm_21“ pilot project in Regensburg: The Showcase into the Danube Region, a temporary pavillion from July until October 2018.
Together with the adjacent shores of the Danube the medieval city of Regensburg, inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006, provide and host at least three site-specific interventions. These contemporary approaches comment on and interpret hidden sites and events from various historical periods that have shaped the city of Regensburg –from the Romans to the Middle Ages, from the Early Modern Period and 19th Century all the way to the present day.
The idea is to facilitate history, to unlock the creative potential and to use innovative methods to give visibility to that which is hidden.
