Project topics

The topics we are interested in, are the following:

  • Colonialism and re-writing of borders
  • Colonialism and gender: intersectional perspectives
  • Legacies of the violent colonial process to today’s world
  • Diaspora and forced migrations

Who we are looking for

Contemporary African artists in general, and African artists who diasporate in Europe, who have worked or are working on these themes, without limitation in the artistic media used. A particular consideration will be given to applications from Under35 artists.

What we offer

  • To some of the selected artists (maximum 3) we will offer a short residency for the production of a new artwork: in this case we will offer a payment of a professional fee, travel costs, food, accommodation, and a budget for the creation of the artwork, which it will be shown in the final exhibition, in autumn 2024
  • To some of the selected artists (maximum 3) we will offer a fee for the loan of an artwork to be exhibited in the final exhibition
  • Please note: all the selected artists will be asked to come into contact with our audiences and citizens, through a system of events, educational workshops, video pills: activities that allow us to best share the artistic experience, promoting understanding of the colonial phenomenon by the population
