MORPHO and Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens present a Writing Residency at Woning Van Wassenhove between 24 November and 22 December 2023
Application deadline: September 15, 2023
Since 2015, MDD has been inviting residents to spend time in the Woning Van Wassenhove, a unique post-brutalist landmark designed in 1972–74 by the Flemish architect Juliaan Lampens. The 2023 residency at the Woning Van Wassenhove allows an artist to further their writing practice.
The resident is granted full use of the Woning Van Wassenhove, located in Sint-Martens-Latem, in a quiet residential area in the vicinity of Ghent, for four consecutive weeks. As an outcome of the residency, MDD and/or MORPHO assists the resident to organise a public moment, such as a talk, performance, publication, broadcast or presentation in the year following the residency (2024).
The call is open to any applicant legally permitted to travel and reside in Belgium for the duration of the residency. We will do our best to adapt to the resident’s needs. However, due to its restricted architecture (stairs, absence of elevator), the Woning Van Wassenhove is not suitable for all conditions, and not for more than one resident.
Applications will be reviewed by Caroline Dumalin (artistic director MORPHO), Laurens Otto (curator Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens), Bert Puype (artist liaison Axel Vervoordt Gallery) & Yann Chateigné Tytelman (curator, writer and part of MORPHO's artistic council)
