Call for applications – Five weekly residential modules grants, UNIDEE – University of Ideas at Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto, Biella, Italy
UNIDEE – University of Ideas is a multifaceted platform offering an educational programme of residential modules – taking place both at Cittadellarte and at academic partners’ sites internationally – alongside a series of artists’ residency projects. Based on interdisciplinary research, knowledge sharing and experience exchange, the programme fosters processes of cross-pollination to investigate the relationship between art and public sphere.
The programme, developed by Cecilia Guida in collaboration with Juan Esteban Sandoval, kicked off in May 2015, and focuses its first year on three broad concepts: temporality, responsibility, participation, encompassing art history, activism, commons, politics, territorial transformation, museology, visual narratives, social imagery, relational systems, rituals, social cooking, urban space (etc.).
