Tobi Maier talks about the project Vila Sul (in German).

Vila Sul is the name of this residency based in the Goethe-Institut Salvador that receives four artists during each period – two from South America and two from other continents – for an eight-week stay in the city.
The main feature of the Residence Vila Sul is the exchange, not only among the artists, but also with the local population, allowing for continuous dialogue.

The city of Salvador is symbolic of the overall scope of the project Episodes of the South: it was Brazil’s first capital, it maintains living traces of its own history and is the city with the largest black population outside of Africa. With its theater-studio, two galleries, courtyard and library, the residence offers ideal conditions for gatherings in various formats that promote reflection and stimulate cultural production.
