AADK Spain is an international artistic platform that opens up spaces for research and contemporary creation. With a focus set on experimental and creative processes, its primary interest is to explore the notions of body, territory, andspatiality through an interdisciplinary approach.
The platform advocates for the decentralization of culture and the access to contemporary art in non-urban areas. It addresses local issues as a mean to understand global problems.
Currently based in Centro Negra (Blanca, Murcia) AADK Spain holds several programs among which its Artistic Residencies Program stands out. Deeply rooted in its context, said program constitutes a framework for research and debate where knowledge exchange and creative collaboration are always encouraged. Besides the aforementioned, the platform also holds a wide number of activities, workshops and events that enrich the stay of the artists in residence.
