Tras la experiencia del programa HARRIAK en su versión piloto en 2016, eremuak pone en marcha la segunda edición: HARRIAK 2017...
eremuak, in collaboration with Halfhouse, is calling for applications for a residency for artists from or residents in the Basque Autonomous Community. The proposal aims to support artists and/or creators working in the context of the visual arts.
This year’s sessions are dedicated to the presentation of some of the projects supported by the open call for proposals within the eremuak programme. With this initiative we want to draw attention to the diversity of proposals promoted and to look more deeply into contemporary artistic publishing, interpretation and production through the experiences of its creators. Within this framework, other activities carried out in 2016 will also be presented, such as issue no.
These seminars are established as a space for reflection on important questions associated with artistic practice such as "publish", "produce" and "programme". In turn, the seminars will set out to draw attention to a number of projects and initiatives that have been put forward in the last two eremuak programmes.
This seminar has been conceived as a showcase for projects and initiatives created since the eremuak programme was first announced in December 2010.
Along the lines of previous initiatives such as the Seminar that was held in January 2012, on this occasion the seminar, organised by eremuak, will focus on the legitimisation discourses that informed public policies.
As stated in the programatic document, eremuak is a project intended to help activate the sphere of action of the Basque Government´s cultural policy on plastic and visual arts using a continuous open programme designed to optimise contemporary art environments.
