Onassis AiR
Residency Athens, Greece

Onassis AiR

DEADLINE:24 April 2020

Open call for ONASSIS AiR: The Infinite Rehearsal in Four Movements, the (inter)national artistic research residency program in Athens which runs between September 2020 and May 2021.

The residency is conceived as a collective program focused on two research areas: Identities Annihilated and Everything Equally Evolved. Each Movement Group of five to six participants will engage in a collective “rehearsal,” bringing their own “instrument” in the form of their existing practice that clearly engages with one of the research topic areas in a radical way.

The working language of the research groups is English.

Program dates:

FALL 2020:IDENTITIES ANNIHILATED MOVEMENT I: September 14 — October 25, 2020 MOVEMENT II:November 2 — December 13, 2020

SPRING 2021: EVERYTHING EQUALLY EVOLVED MOVEMENT III: February 17 — March 31, 2021 MOVEMENT IV: April 7 — May 19, 2021

  • It is for those who seek a non-homogenous collective environment composed of groups of practitioners coming from diverse disciplines and practices.
  • It is for those who are interested in an intensive period of collective study & research during the six week duration of each Movement Group that will be coming to Onassis AiR during Fall 2020 & Spring 2021.
