The residency aims to create spaces of encounter between archaeological landscapes and contemporary art practices, generating an archeology of mediterranean culture having the South of Italy as the epicentre of new cartographies and explorations.

About

THE 2021 RESIDENCY PROGRAMME 

Open Call​

For the 2021 residency, we propose three possible approaches to explore what does it mean to be “in ruins” and the ideas of proximity, futurity, and distance that this may imply: ​

  • the archive as a metaphorical practice able to keep archeology a dynamic field of action, where the production of individual and collective narratives depends on the original assemblage and composition of units and fragments.
  • archeological research as a political practice, where original approaches to space, time, and language allow to stretch, expand and erode historical references, coordinates, and timelines.
  • individual histories as a tool to rewrite contemporary Mediterranean mythologies as a strategy to produce alternative forms of communal identity. ​

Residencies will last 10 days and take place between July and August, in accordance with the applicants’ availability. In-ruins will provide studio and living spaces in the proximity of selected archeological sites, and cover local transport costs. The final presentation of the research carried out over the residency will take place either at the Castle of Squillace or at the Parco Internazionale della Scultura in Catanzaro. This format may vary due to COVID-19 restrictions.
