Art Nouveau as a New EUtopia: 2024–2025 Residencies (Portugal, Belgium, France, Romania)

People gathered around a table in front of an art nouveau window.

Through the European project ‘Art Nouveau as a New EUtopia’ (New EUtopia), the Réseau Art Nouveau Network (RANN) and its partners are inviting contemporary artists from all disciplines (visual artists, writers, musicians, choreographers, etc.) to reinterpret Art Nouveau works and their link with nature through the prism of the past and the present.

Between 2024 and 2025, five of RANN’s European partner cities will be setting up six artists’ residencies: Aveiro in Portugal, Brussels (two venues) and Mons in Belgium, Nancy in France and Oradea in Romania. These residencies take place in emblematic Art Nouveau sites, often house museums. See the call for more information on each house and residency period.

The work artists will create has to establish a particular relationship with the house of the residency and its challenges, including its natural environment, such as its garden. The proposal will also need to take into consideration the public/audience as part of a dynamic for developing public awareness.

The residency’s outcome may include one intervention, object, text, video, installation, performance, or music piece, all of which can be presented to the public. In situ interventions are feasible as long as they are developed in collaboration with the current owners of each house.

Applicants must be a resident in an EU country, in a non-EU participating countries in Creative Europe, or in Switzerland, UK, Ukraine, or EEA countries, with an interest/expertise in Art Nouveau heritage.

The residency provides the following:

  • A residency in a unique Art Nouveau house between 2024 and 2025.
  • A public event.
  • A remuneration of 3,500 EUR (VAT included).
  • Production costs covered by each house (depending on available resources).
  • Accommodation in the country of the residency.
  • Reimbursement of travel costs to the residency.
  • Subsistence costs.
  • Possibility of exhibitions, publications, individual or collective cultural events linked to the residency – to be considered and confirmed on a case-by-case basis with the RANN authorities.
