2018 Spring Session: April 1–June 17
The BARTR artist-in-residence program is held annually in Budapest and hosts a maximum of 10 artists for an 11 week residency.
Each session includes a well organised program of workshops, lectures and studio visits. The concept behind this format is to give residents a chance to engage with as many local initiatives as possible, while allowing enough time for self directed work.
The program’s focus is on contemporary visual arts, however we try to keep the call as open as possible – space permitting. Each session is slightly different and the direction of the final exhibition and publication is dependent on each group of residents and the body of work they produce.
This session, there will be a focus on public space and urbanisation, and the exhibition will take place at several locations throughout Budapest.
In addition to a varied selection of workshops, the program offers a strong print-focussed elective, in line with the vibrant zine, comic, and print scene in Central and Eastern Europe. Residents who choose this focus will be invited to participate in a collaborative publication in addition to the exhibition.
