about the residency
This reseach residency is designed for two Moroccan and two Spanish artists and/or researchers.
This program between Matadero Madrid and Queens Collective Marrakech sets out to create new conditions, relationships and positions concerning creation and research into gender issues, from which to produce, both inside and outside the established artistic circuits.
One of the specific objectives of this call is to share reflections, perspectives and strategies for artistic creation on gender-based themes in two specific contexts: Morocco and Spain.
More specifically, this call poses artists a question: What strategies can the language of art offer to talk about the unmentionable side of gender issues?
