Short description of the programme

Every year in autumn, Goethe-Institut Mexiko in cooperation with the art organization Relaciones Inesperadas conducts a residency program in the border town Tijuana, Mexico. The program targets young visual artists working with photography who live and work primarily in Germany. During the residency, the artist is supposed to develop a personal project and organize workshops for local students. The artist oughts to present their own working approach at the beginning of the project and to finish their residency with a final presentation of the project results. The format of this final presentation is open but may be developed as a consecutive exhibition to be also shown in Mexico-City, among other places.
