IKOB & Greylight Projects Open Call Artist-in-Residency

Greylight Projects (NL) & IKOB (BE)

IKOB – Museum of Contemporary Art in Eupen and Greylight Projects – platform for art and culture in Heerlen launch an Open Call for a three-month residency of (September-November 2021). The residency takes place in the framework of the 2021 Artist Project of Very Contemporary, a network between different art spaces and museums in the Euregio-Meuse-Rhine region. We invite artists who are based in the Netherlands, Belgium or Germany to apply.

Guided by the question “Where are we now?,” the residency invites an artist to reflect on the particularities of the Euregio-Meuse-Rhine region. In 2019, Very Contemporary launched WONDERTOURS, a project aimed to bridge the distance between the different institutions by offering cycle routes in this border region.

The artist is invited to offer new perspective on these routes, responding to distance and proximity, landscapes and/or borders between the institutions. The project may address or reflect on themes such as sustainability, trans-cultural dialogue, cultural heritage or geopolitics specific to the region. The focus of the residency is to develop a work or project within the context of “Where are we now?”
