Educational Residency (Wuston-Buchholz, Germany) – Call For Artists

Educational Residency (Wuston-Buchholz, Germany) – Call For Artists

The Field Kitchen Academy is an interdisciplinary educational residency programme that gathers artists/ creative minds, a resident chef, and prominent experts from different fields together around a kitchen table through mind-opening acts and actions.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 23 Jun 2019

A total of ten residents will be accepted to join the upcoming Field Kitchen Academy in its two modules. Curated by Ece Pazarbaşı under the title of Silence with the Consent of Sound, residents will use the notion of silence in sound as a gateway to opening various sensory experiences. Residents will experiment towards transgressing the well-accustomed idea that silence, as used as a “sound” component in sound art and music, creates an aspect of empowering the work itself by making it stronger. Use of silence can accentuate the other frequencies. At the same time, sound might accentuate the silence further. Silence in sound creates a passage to other senses of the body. With silence, the journey with sound enables quick shifts and glitches from auditory senses to the enhanced senses of sight, touch, smell, and taste.

Composed of two intertwined modules, the educational residency offers ten residents through applications from artists, chefs, and other creative minds to address these issues.

The ten selected residents will have the opportunity of pursuing processes of experimentation, discussion, trial and error, the progression of knowledge, and know-how in working sessions during the first three weeks. The last half week will be the ‘simmering’ period where the residents are expected to do Nothing.

The selection process will be pursued by a jury including Mario Asef, Ursula Block, Cevdet Erek, Brandon Labelle, and Ece Pazarbaşı.
