Open Call | Hjemmefra virtual residency for Nordic-Baltic artists, 21 March – 6 June, 2022
by The Union

Open Call for Nordic/Baltic based artists

In the state of crisis we live in, the old cannot die and the new is struggling to be born. We propose to contribute to renewed forms of reciprocity, composting and commoning, as forms of resistance, healing, and de-growth.

We don’t prioritize artistic quality over motivation and experiments in critical self, communal care, and post-capitalist attempts. Thus, The Union does not expect the applicants to make a project proposal in advance or at all; the residency allows new ideas to develop without pressure on the completion of a piece of work or project, rather focusing on the process-oriented aspects of the artistic practice: thinking, practicing, exploring, refreshen, slowing-down and experimenting on issues, challenges, and lifestyles originated since the Covid-19 outbreak.


This Artist-in-Residence edition is open only to artists based in the Nordic/Baltic countries

Nordic-Baltic countries are Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia. (with the exception of Norway).

* Norway-based artists cannot apply; however, Norway artists based in another Nordic/Baltic country are eligible to apply.

* Artists with collective and collaborative practices are welcome to apply, however, individually.
