Open Call: Rituals For The Living Present

Open call for Residencies 2024 - 2025

MORPHO is now welcoming applications for Rituals for the Living Present, a residency programme that invites artists to consider the present-day meaning of rituals, their role in different (art) societies and how they may be reinvented.
Rituals have the symbolic power to bring people together and induce in them a strong relationship to the world. Rituals can be exercises in attention or ‘temporary techniques for feeling at home’ (according to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in his novel Citadelle).
With this call, we do not propose a strict theme, but rather a larger spirit that guides our thinking during the upcoming residency period. We encourage applicants working within the expanded field of visual arts to tell us how they see or practice rituals as a resource for art and community.

This call is open to the development residency (5 months, for artists living and/or working in Antwerp, Flanders and Brussels, without accommodation)

Applications will be reviewed by curator Bas Hendrikx and Sorana Munsya, artist Mekhitar Garabedian and artist/curator Dušica Dražić. Apply before 1 September 2023. Check our website for more details!
