La Becque’s Principal Residency Program

Participants to La Becque’s Principal Residency Program are selected globally by a transdisciplinary jury of experts. The program is open to both accomplished practitioners and up-and-coming candidates with a high potential for artistic growth. Applicants are evaluated on their practice as well as on the quality and pertinence of a residency project specifically written for their time at La Becque.

The residency program will dedicate particular attention to projects exploring the interplay of nature, the environment and technology – notions which are more than ever intertwined and at the core of contemporary preoccupations.

A purposefully broad playfield, this thematic nexus opens up very different yet similarly rewarding avenues of exploration – for example: documenting what and who makes up the “Anthropocene”; using technological tools to document and transcribe natural environments into artistic contexts; exploring new junctures at which technology becomes part of our natural environments, and vice versa.

The call for applications is now open!
