> The research residencies are a space for exploration. Artists and researchers are invited to exchange, discover and look around, but also to understand the context of the project and the singular conditions which are proposed to them. It is a place of reflection and appropriation. This period will allow artists and researchers to find their place within the creative process. Each one-month residency will gather two or three participants from different countries. This preparatory period before the summer workshop is crucial to achieve professional and affective relations between participants and partners. The open_studio of Mechanisms for an Entente is for them a privileged space for dialogue. Also, each participant to the residency will offer back the result of their research to Krakow’s audience under the form that fits most to its inner issues. Residencies are organized in partnership with the French Institute of Kraków and the Małopolski Ogród Sztuki (MOS).
