Long-term residency open-call
Short-term residency open-call
Understanding artistic creation as a basic need, we are inviting artists, curators and researchers to contribute their thoughts and energy to conceptualise the takes on the sustainability of individuums’ lives and ethical challenges and boundaries of sustainability of artistic production; to think of artistic production as non-commodity; to imagine alternative economic systems to sustain artistic production; to define boundaries of living space and workspace, leisure time and work time; to meditate on open-source appropriate technologies and open-design; to find the ways of collaborations of disjoint decentralized communities.
The inauguration call of AIR InSilo is inspired by the ideas of Leopold Kohr (1909 – 1994), a prominent but underrated Austrian philosopher, whose concept ‘Small is Beautiful’ has saturated the thinking of subsequent researchers and influenced the notions of decentralization with inclinations to localism and post-development theory, degrowth theory, bioregionalism, and the principle of sustainability.
for the emergency Program
The Patreon page of AIR InSilo is dedicated to the emergency programme (in collaboration with the international programme Artists at Risk). Its goal is to host artists in critical life situations, as well as to invite and host artists who had lost their income or who suffer difficult life circumstances due to the crisis. The residency aims to focus its attention on female artists with children, on artists from countries where governments didn’t allocate sufficient support programs, and primarily on the ones who suffer persecution from the home country governments.
