Ramdom promotes and supports various residency projects

Over the years the residences have become for Ramdom a tool and a working methodology whose purpose is to develop a wide-ranging research aimed at investigating the main issues of contemporaneity.

The residency plan consists of hosting artists, curators and researchers from various disciplines (writers, anthropologists, philosophers, linguists, architects, urban planners, geographers, scientists, etc.) who deal with the local context while trying, at the same time, to accompany a broader reflection capable of intercepting themes and working methods that address a national and international dimension. This type of approach allows us to constantly question ourselves about what happens in culturally different contexts.

Methods, practices and contents; outcomes and processes will dialogue on the same level of interest.

Each guest will investigate a specific theme or practice in dialogue with the research and projects developed by Ramdom so far. The final result, in the form of a process or work, will enter Ramdom’s archive or collection.

Where is it:

The spaces of KORA in Castrignano De ‘Greci (LE), will be intended for the hospitality of national and international artists. The rooms on the first floor will be designed to become a space for work and research. We will ask the artists to explore the territory and get in touch with the communities that will thus be able to become part of the creative process.

 

Who is the call for:

Artists, curators and researchers from various disciplines: writers, anthropologists, philosophers, linguists, architects, urban planners, geographers, scientists etc.

What we ask:

The program includes a residency period of at least one week at Castrignano De ‘Greci and a possible public restitution of the research developed in forms such as: talk, panel discussion, workshop, performance, screening, etc.

What we provide:

Ramdom will make available the studies, the audio-video equipment at its disposal, the accessibility to the library and the archive as well as the accompaniment by professionals such as: curators, historians, architects but also scientists.

How to apply:

Ramdom promotes and supports various residency projects during the year. Each project uses a different artist selection tool:

  • Call
  • Direct call
  • Spontaneous applications

 

  • RESEARCH PROJECTS

The projects carried out so far by Ramdom frame the thematic areas that we intend to implement and develop over the years. In line with these, the artists are invited to develop, through different media and languages, a process of analysis and research during the residency period.
