Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens is proud to announce two new funded residencies at the Woning Van Wassenhove, a landmark modernist building designed by the Flemish architect Juliaan Lampens in Sint-Martens-Latem, near Ghent, Belgium. The residency programme at the Woning Van Wassenhove is a partnership between Stichting Mevrouw Jules Dhondt-Dhaenens and the Lampens Estate.
The two residencies will each allow one Europe-based candidate of any nationality to stay in the Woning Van Wassenhove for up to 4 consecutive weeks between September and December 2021. Since the Woning is a single person heritage house, the emphasis is primarily on reflection and research, although production that respects the integrity of the house is possible.
The FABA Artist Residency is aimed at practicing artists in any creative field. Applicants should have taken part in at least 1 solo and 1 group exhibition in public institutions by the time of applying. The Art & Architecture Residency is aimed at practitioners in any creative discipline whose work is situated at the intersection of art and architecture. Applicants should be able to demonstrate in their practice a multi-year commitment to exploring the interface between art and architecture.
How applicants choose to take advantage of their stay in the Woning Van Wassenhove is open, so long as the occupation of the house, its locality and architectural identity, are put to productive use. The resident is expected to organise a public-facing output at the Woning Van Wassenhove or Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, either at the end of their stay or later, showcasing aspects of their practice in relation to the residency.
Both residencies provide:
- Return travel costs from/to European place of residency (up to €1000).
- Mobility grant for local travel during the residency (up to €500).
- Per diem of €35 per day (up to 4 weeks).
- Production budget for presentation moment (up to €2000).
- Rent, utilities, internet connection (no landline phone or computer provided).
