Borderline Offensive – Artistic Residencies

12.03.2019.

Borderline Offensive hosted 5 transnational + transdisciplinary artistic residencies in 2018, across 5 European countries and hosting 19 artists from 9 countries, selected through an open call with more than 130 applicants from a total of 26 countries.

During the artistic residencies, participating artists explored together issues of intercultural conflict and dialogue, sociological contact zones, migration and integration, collective identity-building, and community cohesion in contemporary Europe – through the lens of humor and participatory art.

The programme of the artistic residencies included 1 participatory workshop for local migrants and natives and 1 artist talk or creative workshop for local audiences and artistic community, as well as time for group and individual work to create an original ‘Borderline Offensive’ artistic project.

4 original projects have been selected for production and touring across Europe and the Middle East in 2019/2020. You can know more about them and how to bring them to your venue/festival at Borderline Offensive’s Portfolio.
