CANALE GRANDE

20/07 – 19/09/2014

 

An Artist-in-Residence Project
The contribution by KunstVereineRuhr and Urbane Künste Ruhr to KulturKanal 2014

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Rhine-Herne Canal, the network KunstVereineRuhr in cooperation with Urbane Künste Ruhr initiated from July 20 to August 31st, 2014, an artist-in-residence programme in the context of KulturKanal 2014.

The project consists of three parts that build on each other: artist in residence, presentation and symposium:

  • Artist in Residence: during the project period, four artists were invited to explore simultaneously the history of the Rhine-Herne Canal, the people who live along this waterway, the places and their historic changes as well as transformations due to urban development.
  • Presentation: their findings, resulting works and the contacts made were presented to the public and put up for discussion.
  • Symposium: DutchCulture. Centre for international cooperation masterminded a symposium describing the different concepts for artist-in-residence programmes and pointing out possible approaches for the Ruhr area. Canale Grande as completed project contributed to the discussion and was open to criticism. All relevant players experienced in the field of residencies or aspiring to this experience in the near future were be invited. Apart from best-practice examples, criteria for a RuhrResidency were developed that can serve as concept to different partners in the region and should be realized with different cooperation partners.
