Re-Directing: East Curatorial Residency is a platform for carrying out research and meetings between curators, representatives of the most interesting grass-root initiatives, and people in charge of organising artistic events from all over the world. It was launched in 2013. The notion of "re-directing" refers here to a need to facilitate collaborations between art initiatives which due to geopolitical conditions have not had many opportunities to collaborate thus far.
Re–Directing: East Curatorial Residency is a peer-learning workshop, a curatorial seminar, an extended site exploration, and a research opportunity for groups of four to six individuals together with the U–jazdowski team and local participants. This curatorial residency is a platform for developing a possible working collaboration with the U–jazdowski and other parties concerned in the years to come. The participants are expected to share their experience and understanding of respective artistic and socio-political contexts, as well as to prepare themselves for participation in this year's exploration of the topic: "hospitality."
Selection will be based on the professional excellence of the applicant’s work and their plans for sharing the benefits of the exchange with artists and institutions in their home country /site of activity. Due to the programme agenda, aimed at creating collaboration opportunities beyond the existing cultural policies, applicants must have sufficient command of English to function independently, and communicate with the U–jazdowski’s staff and other residents.
