Beyond Time A-I-R

open call till 3 May


Beyond Time 2017 program:

This edition is devoted to VIDEO ART, MAPPING ART and NEW MEDIA . The artist realizing the video or new media installation which can be presented in outdoor elevations, or inside of the gallery can relate to the subject of the residency (Beyond Time), and collect the material in a response to the environment, the history of the city ,the landscape or to Nature (Bielsko-Biała is surrounded by the mountains and forests).
An extra inspiration for the project can give the stay at the Mongolian Yurt in the studio of the curator of the residency, where the artist can have time and space to work with the landscape and the mystical side of life. We can also organize a trip to Kraków.

The edition is divided in two parts. Each will last for one month (July or August). At once we can accept from 2 till 4 artists.
