Open call: 2017 Artists in Residence at Tadeusz Kantor House in Poland


Applications deadline: September 16th, 2017

Tadeusz Kantor Foundation and Adam Mickiewicz Institute are announcing an open call for artists for an autumn Artists in Residence programme in Tadeusz Kantor House in Hucisko, Poland.

The residency programme is centered around a stay at Tadeusz Kantor's house, located in a countryside area near the city of Kraków, in Poland. The house is a unique place created and designed by the artist himself in the early 1980s and deeply rooted in his aesthetics. Now, after the artist’s death, it servers both as a memorial and a place for artistic creation.

We are inviting artists of different fields to work on their projects in the House, using the occasion for focused and uninterrupted work. The residency in the Kantor house in Hucisko shall be a time for the artists to develop their work, get inspired and realise ideas.

Our goal is to search for artists of different fields and with wide artistic approach, to work in atmosphere of independency and free expression. We’re offering space and time in inspirational interior and exterior of Kantor’s House. So far we held residencies from German, Canadian, Swedish, Belgian, US and Polish visual artists, art critics and Kantor researchers, Polish art galleries, VR artists and many other creators from Europe.


Legitimate fields

The application is open for international artists of all fields, but the main focus of the programme is the visual and performance art. The application is open also for researchers, writers and curators.
