RAMDOM ASSOCIATION is calling for research-based artists to take part in a 6-day group investigation aimed at ideas related to extreme lands and remote areas. Situated at the southern tip of east Italy on the Mediterranean, Gagliano del Capo poses as an ideal location for participants of the DEFAULT 19 Residency to contribute to an investigation of the extreme land.

During working days participants will individually and collectively develop their research approach in workshops and seminar sessions. They will expand their network and exchange ideas with the support of the programme curators, external guests and lecturers.

Conceived to encourage the research as a separate moment from the production,  , will function as a platform that aims at re-negotiate the notion of time by nurturing a radically non-productive oriented format. During the six-days of residency, participants are called to be individually and collectively engaged with the landscape in its broader geographical and anthropological extent. The residency will serve as a laboratory and as an experience to nurture new forms of thoughts and approaches to the topic of the extreme lands.

The residency will be finalized afterword by producing a publication edited by Ramdom and release by the end of the year. All participants will contribute to the publication with a text.

The call is open to all disciplines: artists, curators, and researchers; or coming from other disciplines: writers, anthropologists, linguists, architects, urbanists, geographers and, professionals from scientific disciplines.

Works will be in English.

This is an international call open to any artist of any nationality and at least 21 years of age. Application of mid-career artists is encouraged.

Accommodation will be provided by Ramdom Participants’ travel expenses will be cover by the Institutional Partners.

Active and collaborative participation to the program is mandatory. Participants are expected to stay in Gagliano del Capo (LE) for the whole duration of the project (workshop and residency, 18-23 June 2019).
