Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia > Research Residencies, ‘Our Many Europes’ (Spain)
Through its research residencies, the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid provides a platform and support for independent artists and researchers, both individuals and collectives, whose work revolves around the different lines of the Museo’s programme, thus fostering reflection and dialogue between the residency occupants and the Institution’s different areas.
The current call is for three research residencies at MNCARS, to take place in the period spanning 4 May 2020 – 30 April 2021. These will take place within the context of The Museum’s EU project Our Many Europes, which spans four years and revolves around the 1990s.
The three main research lines proposed for this call are:
Research or the critical activation of archives linked to artistic and/or activist practices carried out in the 1990s.
Research or artistic production related to critical culture articulated inside and outside Europe at the heart of the 1990s, taking as its framework dimensions such as the AIDS crisis, processes of transition and historical memory, post-89 activist practices and globalisation, configurations of the post-internet world, etc.
An exploration of performance practices in the 1990s, and processes of contemporary archiving, transmission and activation.
Residencies will run for a minimum of 2 months and a maximum of 12 months. The financial allocation of each Research Residency is €5000 to cover travel, accommodation, living expenses and other costs.
Deadline (extended): 15 natural days from the end of the emergency state and the resumption of museum activity
