  • RESEARCH PROJECTS

Within the research project Survey on Extreme Lands launched in 2014, Ramdom hosts artists and researchers from different areas to take part in this continuous process of analysis and critical interpretation of the human and natural landscape.

What is it

Residences aimed at the development of research projects on the theme of the Extreme Lands.

What it foresees

– general logistics (use of the shared Lastation space and the tools provided)

– media library consultation of the Observatory of the Extreme Lands

– use of audio-video instruments

– general tutoring

– specific tutoring and meetings with professionals from different disciplines (to be assessed against the candidate’s proposal)

Who it is addressed to

Ramdom is a multidisciplinary residence open to professionals in the visual arts: artists, curators, researchers, or other disciplines: writers, anthropologists, philosophers, linguists, architects, urban planners, geographers, professionals in the scientific disciplines.

Minimum duration

One week

 

  • OUTCOME 

Although the research residency is not intended for the immediate formalisation of a work or its production, the residency path could include an open studio final or a discursive return (talk, panel discussion, round table) if the research path is intertwined with Ramdom’s interests. In this case, the spaces of Lastation would be set up as an open laboratory in progress and the residence would become a potential opening for a future continuation of the research begun.

 

  • PERSONAL PROJECTS

What is it?

Residences aimed at the development of personal projects. If you are interested in being inspired by a place with a unique evocative power, at the end of the Earth, in the heart of the Mediterranean, you can present us with a proposal.
