short residencies 2021.2022

4-5 day long residencies

Ends 25 June 2022

Following an open call for proposals, the selected artists and creative practitioners are invited to our project space for 4-5 day long residencies. Used as a workspace, showroom, exhibition-performance-research or dream-space, the set-up will change in a fast turnaround, showcasing many creative positions. Each residency will be open to the public- at least at some stage- if the resident artist wish so.
With the lockdown having such a big impact on artists, the production of new work and the public interaction with contemporary art, the short residency programme hopes to help speed up the art ecology again. All short residencies will be documented on our website, together with artist statements and links. We will offer curatorial support and critique, match and invite interested specialists and help in networking.

Timetable for the residencies, (a more detailed plan will be up soon):

Part 1: 27 September- 30 October 2021
Part 2: 23 May - 25 June 2022


Open call- now closed

We encourage all artists and creative practitioners, professionals and amateurs, individuals, groups or organisations to submit a proposal. The short projects do not have to be a finished product or have a fixed outcome. In the contrary, they might only be a first step for further projects, a test run and experiment of a process, performance, initiative or forms of display.
For PS² this is a great opportunity as well: to see a wide variety of cultural expressions, to make new contacts and to open up the (art)space for more diverse activities.

PS² will provide
-its project space
-equipment: data projectors/ tvs/ media players/ boards/ stuff/ internet / tool box/ coffee machine, messy storage contents....
-practical assistance and invigilation
-web presence
-small fee.

Unfortunately, we are very limited to contribute to any travel costs or accommodation.

Please send your proposal what you would like to do during your residency (max 300words) + max 7 images + links, all in one PDF (not more than 4MB), with the subject header 'short residencies' to: info@pssquared.org
Please indicate which part/month would best suit you.

Deadline for applications: 04 September 2021


PS² has initiated similar projects in the past, giving artists and creatives the chance to experiment and  test a project idea and open it to the public : 9-5 residency, 2009; Rehearsal room, 2013/14; and  short residencies, 2019.
