On March 1, 2024, La Becque Artist Residency will launch its new call for applications for its Principal Residency Program, seeking residents for 2025.

La Becque’s Principal Residency Program offers three- and six-month residencies to selected applicants (individuals, duos or collectives), to be held between January and November, 2025. Details about the full yearly calendar and proposed residency periods in 2025 are available on La Becque’s website, which provides all information and forms pertaining to the call (application criteria and guidelines, FAQ, and application form).

The Principal Residency Program is the foundation program of La Becque. It pays particular attention to projects that explore the interplay between nature, the environment, and technology, notions that are more intertwined than ever and lie at the heart of contemporary concerns.

The Principal Residency Program is oriented towards confirmed artists as well as up-and-coming practitioners with a high development potential. Curators, critics and theorists active in research fields connected to cultural practices are also encouraged to apply.

Located on an exceptional slice of lakeside land in La Tour-de-Peilz, between Vevey and Montreux, La Becque addresses these notions in a particularly rich environment of both obvious and ambivalent beauty. The site of La Becque and its immediate surroundings offer a particularly rich landscape from which to draw ideas, while its lush garden acts as a unique, localized entry point into the way we like to think about the above themes.

La Becque offers a special time for reflection rather than a focus on production for its residents, who benefit from a unique location and infrastructure, as well as networks conducive to accomplishing the project they have been selected for. Deeply convinced of the importance of these moments of transition and reflection, La Becque is primarily interested in facilitating phases of research and other modes of transition in artistic work.

Principal Residency Program participants will be selected globally by a transdisciplinary jury of experts. The jury selecting 2025 residents will be composed of François J. Bonnet (director, INA GRM, Paris), Patrick de Rham (director, Arsenic—Centre d’art scénique contemporain, Lausanne), Stefanie Hessler (director, Swiss Institute, New York), artist and curator Deborah-Joyce Holman, Nora N. Khan (curator and critic, Los Angeles), Samuel Leuenberger (independent curator, founder, City & Country SALTS, Basel; curator, Art Basel Messeplatz & Art in Public Space), and Boris Magrini (senior curator, LAS Art Foundation, Berlin), joined by Fondation Françoise Siegfried-Meier trustee Anne-Catherine de Perrot and La Becque director Luc Meier.

Application deadline: March 22, 2024 (11:59pm, CET).
