On the Move

Air_cruise 2006 is an artists-in-residence project in the frame of the Culture 2000 project [Post]Modernism Against / Within by Forum Stadtpark, Graz / Austria in cooperation with Galerie für zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig / Germany, J.E. Purkyne University, Faculty of Art and Design, Ústí nad Labem / Czech Republic, and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Dunaújvaros / Hungary.
Project Description
Six artists will be on the move from one city to the next for eight weeks, in each of which they will stay for two weeks and do some research and work. They are asked to investigate the urban structures of the cities from this point of view. Four very different cities have been chosen for the air_cruise 2006: Leipzig, Ústí nad Labem, Dunaújvaros, and Graz.

How is political, economical, social, and cultural development shown in urban structures and how is it characterised by the citizens? How much does a city reveal of its specific character if you stay there only for a little while? Can the artist make visible developments, structures and characters and/or visions that lead to a change? To use this situation offers various possibilities that shall lead to a work of art that will be shown in the exhibition at Emil Filla Gallery in Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic, and will be published in the general catalogue of the project.
Procedure
The call for entries is directed to artists working with different media. The actual residencies of the air_cruise 2006 will take place in two periods, either February/March or April/May. The artists will be in close connection to the institutions that will host the project.
Selection / Jury:
The artist selection will be made on the basis of the applications submitted by a jury consisting of representatives of each partner institution. The jury meeting will take place in mid-January.
