“Temporary home 2012 – home in crisis”, Kassel, Germany | TEMPORARY HOME 2012
the lived-in installation, 1 July – 24 August 2012
Deadline: 01 May, 2012
Application fee: none
´temporary home´ is a interdisciplinary arts and culture initiative which actively explores concepts of ‘home’ in its broader sense. The 2012 edition home in crisis asks how situations of crisis affect the notions, needs and desires of home. The project runs for six weeks from July 1st – August 24th, 2012, parallel to the upcoming documenta13 in Kassel, Germany. During this time, ´temporary home´ literally manifests as a real home for a group of international creatives who will live and work together in a joint investigation, the lived-in installation. The project starts July 1st with a two-week ‘construction of home’ phase, followed by one month of occupancy (starting July 13th) featuring an ongoing cultural program with art exhibition, performances, music, theatre display, movie nights, discussions, and the creation of space for social interaction and experimentation. All events will be non-for-profit and open to the public.
We invite creative individuals or groups to become part of the lived-in installation temporary home and to develop and present their own concepts about ´home in crisis´ in Kassel, 2012.
Applicants for a residency in the context of temporary home should be prepared to join a creative social setting rather then present in a conventional art show.
Candidates should be willing to physically reside within the project for a period of one or two weeks and to actively share a social home with other residents, attendees, and visitors.
