Topic: Precarity in Art

Dates: April 1-­30, 2017

Location: Budapest (Hungary) and Zagreb (Croatia)

The first East Calls Curatorial Residency is jointly organized by
Easttopics (Hungary) and G-MK (Croatia) in Spring 2017, on the topic of
Precarity in Art.
The topic of Precarity in Art mirrors the actual situation in both
countries: Hungary has endured a severe shift in cultural policies since
2011, resulting in the desertification of the contemporary art scene and
generating new artistic reflexes, independent and alternative ways to
operate. Croatia is presently undergoing the same kind of restructuration,
foreshadowing an oppressing cultural political climate and situation for
the years to come and already witnessing the unprecedented solidarity of
the art scenes in a need to act.

The residency lasts one month and is divided in two time blocks,the first
one in Budapest (Hungary) between April 3-­15 and the second one in Zagreb
between April 17-­30. The purpose of this residency program is to engage
with the thematic of Precarity in Art by connecting international curators
with those protagonists of the Hungarian and Croatian cultural scenes who
were/are working with minimal financial, spatial or temporal resources, and
to map the answers they give to such situation.

The program in each country is articulated around three main pivots: a
general overview of the contemporary art scenes of both countries, a focus
on the institutions, self-­‐organized structures and art professionals
dealing with or functioning in precarity, and finally a personally tailored
part shaped according to each participant’s points of interest.

Participation fee: 1.000 EUROS

The fee includes the use of office facilities, entry fees of museums and
special events, public transport in Budapest and Zagreb, inland transport
for provincial venues, transport between Budapest and Zagreb. The fee also
covers the production costs or a final publication realized on the topic of
the residency program.

Travel to Budapest for the start of the program and back at the end of the
program, as well as accommodation expenses are NOT included.
