Each year approximately 60 national and international artists, researchers, critics and academics are selected through an open call. The focus lies on development and creation within the field of print. No prior knowledge of printmaking techniques is required. Besides the regular residencies the Frans Masereel Centrum also organizes a popular school residency program in the fall. It is set up in collaboration with selected art colleges and universities.
Our general residency program invites artists to realize an individual, multiform, print-related project that matches their artistic practice. The focus of the general residency lies on development, creation and eventually production in one or more of our workshops.
Applying for a general residency in 2022 will be possible from the Spring of 2021.
Critics, writers, artists, curators and academics can reside at the Centrum Frans Masereel to conduct theoretical research about the medium of printmaking, prepare a critical text on a print-related topic, develop ideas for curatorial projects, etc.
Applying for an essay residency in 2022 will be possible from the Spring of 2021.
A school residency is a unique opportunity for universities and university colleges with a Master-degree program to develop a contemporary, print-related project - both individually and/or in group.
