ARTISTS IN ARCHITECTURE
Re-Activating Modern European Houses
From July to September 2019, BOZAR, Fundació Mies van der Rohe (Barcelona) and University of Naples Federico II are organising 6 artist residencies in 20th century houses across Europe, built or once inhabited by remarkable cultural figures: the Casa Vilaro in Barcelona, the houses of Olivier Strebelle (built by André Jacqmain) and Willy Van Der Meeren in Belgium, Giuseppe Fiorelli and Sol LeWitt in Italy and Marcel Iancu in Roumania. The aim of the project is to re-activate lesser known European cultural heritage.
The residencies have been prepared during 2018-2019 together with diverse European universities. An open call, followed by an expert jury per house, determined the selection of artists. The outcome of the residencies will be visible in the three partners’ institutions in the form of an exhibition wall during autumn 2019.
Co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union and in the framework of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 (EYCH).
