The aim of this call is to offer a residency to contribute to the production of artistic projects, regardless of the artistic discipline and format.
Tabakalera is a centre for contemporary culture that drives artistic creation and shares it with local people. From the outset, Tabakalera has acted as a mediator for contemporary creation. In these uncertain times of collective confinement, Tabakalera must continue and even strengthen this work, even if this involves doing things in new ways which we are still discovering.
In uncertain times, we believe that the value of culture for representing what is happening to us in a shared, symbolic and critical way takes on a new importance. As a public cultural institution, it’s also crucial that we maintain a close relationship with artists and a commitment to support them.
We’ve therefore reinforced our work in the digital sphere to maintain a specific programme for these times, and we’ve commissioned new pieces from local artists.
The pieces draw on the physical isolation that we are all experiencing and are developed for the digital environment – now our only meeting place. The designs use various perspectives and artistic languages to directly or indirectly address key themes in these current times, including privacy and the loss of privacy, confinement, image saturation, the central role of technology and our environmental footprint.
We also wanted to reach out to the artists who have taken part in our residency programme in the Artist's Space to invite them to present some of their pieces developed in Tabakalera, some of which have still not been exhibited.
In effect, we will share a window to contemporary creation with the public, enabling them to appreciate the diversity of projects supported by Tabakalera. The window will grow week on week to become a small database for documenting these extraordinary times.
