AFAR

RESIDENCY

The Artists for Artists Residencies are centered around relevant themes with social and aesthetic impact, such as redefining the human-nature relation, human dwelling in the digital age and sustainable textiles. The residency program will take place in urban areas (Bucharest and Zagreb) and in areas with local textile traditions (Maramures county and Mulhouse). Residencies in Maramures (Romania) and Mulhouse (France) have a special focus on creating art through traditional weaving, embroidery, and tapestry as artistic expression in regard to ecologically sustainable art-practices, and creating the link between local traditions and contemporary art practices in the medium of textile artworks.
