Manila, 27 October to 11 November 2018
Singapore, 12 November to 14 November 2018
Various creative and interdisciplinary working scholars of related fields such as art, design, urbanism, humanities and digital sciences who live and work in Southeast Asia and/ or Germany joined the residencies in Singapore and Manila, starting on 28 October 2018. The participants worked on their respective fields of research, together with selected counterparts of their interest, deploying conceptual, terminological, or methodological research tools.
What role does historical, traditional or indigenous knowledge of nature and culture play in the future of the world making and acts of life in general? How have digital technologies and internet culture shaped contemporary interpretation and translation of the nature/culture complex in the arts? The residents present their results from 24 to 27 January 2019 in Singapore and from 21 to 23 February 2019 in Manila.
The Residency Nature and Urbanity: Acts of Life is commissioned by the Goethe-Institut Singapore and the Goethe-Institut Philippines with organising partners Nanyang Technological University Contemporary Arts Center (NTU CCA) and Museum of Contemporary Art + Design (MCAD) Manila.
