Information about the last call for application:

Tajamar Foundation in partnership with Goethe Institut, offer a residency program for artists based in Germany. The program seeks to generate connections between Art, Architecture and Public Space, and the opportunity to strengthen networks, knowledge and experiences between international artists and the chilean scene.

We challenge artists to explore and initiate new works, using interactions between art, public space, site specific and architecture taking as inspiration Las Torres de Tajamar, an emblematic housing complex representative of modern architecture in Chile.

In this occasion, the selected artist will hold a one or two month residency between  September and December 2019 (there may be flexibility on these dates) at the apartment of Fundación Tajamar, from where the artist will implement and develop an artistic activation/site-specific in the the common spaces  of the Torres de Tajamar.

During this period, Fundación Tajamar will facilitate a series of studio visits and meetings with artists and professionals involved in the Chilean contemporary arts scene in order to generate new connections and knowledge.
