Objectives of the residence and profiles of the applicants
The resident collecives in Hangar are thought of as projects capable of generating a conceptual and practical interrelation with the center and its communities. We understand that a collective is not a sum of individual artists, but rather implies the convergence of a community around a research project and/or joint practice that is greater than the sum of its members. We are interested in projects whose nature requires the collective dimension. The scope of work of the group must be oriented towards theoretical or practical research, with a marked interest in experimentation and development of open tools and free access or infrastructures to support creation that facilitate creative processes and the transfer of knowledge.
