[Nettime-ro] Fw: Call for Applications: Artists-in-residence project 2006

  Call for Applications: Artists-in-residence project 
  On the Move 
  Deadline for submission (postmark) is December 19, 2005
  Air_cruise 2006 is an artists-in-residence project in the 
  frame of the Culture 2000 project "Against / Within" by 
  Forum Stadtpark, Graz / Austria in cooperation with Galerie 
  für zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig / Germany, J.E. Purkyne 
  University, Faculty of Art and Design, Ústí nad Labem / 
  Czech Republic, and the Institute of Contemporary Art, 
  Dunaújvaros / Hungary.

  Project Description:
  Six artists will be on the move from one city to the next for 
  eight weeks, in each of which they will stay for two weeks 
  and do some research and work. They are asked to investigate 
  the urban structures of the cities from this point of view. Four 
  very different cities have been chosen for the air_cruise 2006: 
  Leipzig, Ústí nad Labem, Dunaújvaros, and Graz.
  How is political, economical, social, and cultural development 
  shown in urban structures and how is it characterised by the 
  citizens? How much does a city reveal of its specific character 
  if you stay there only for a little while? Can the artist make visible 
  developments, structures and characters and/or visions that lead 
  to a change? To use this situation offers various possibilities that 
  shall lead to a work of art that will be shown in the exhibition at 
  Emil Filla Gallery in Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic, and will 
  be published in the general catalogue of the project.

  The call for entries is directed to artists working with different 
  media. The actual residencies of the air_cruise 2006 will take 
  place in two periods, either February/March or April/May. The 
  artists will be in close connection to the institutions that will 
  host the project.

  Selection / Jury:
  The artist selection will be made on the basis of the applications 
  submitted by a jury consisting of representatives of each partner 
  institution. The jury meeting will take place in mid-January.
