Encarnar los umbrales by Lara García Díaz and Envioletá by Javiera de la Fuente are the two projects selected by the jury of the 2020 Bulegoa z/b residency program. The jury was composed by Miren Arenzana (artist), Alejandro Alonso Díaz (curator and director of Fluent) and the three members of Bulegoa z/b. The jury stressed the quality of the 183 proposals submitted.
The objective of this annual open call is to facilitate the production of art and knowledge at different stages and levels at Bulegoa z/b. The residency, which is open to artists and researchers, will last for a month and include space and discursive and financial resources. The call for proposals is open in Spring.
Our office space can be described as an 85 square metre space, with four large windows which open up a dialogue with the space outside. The space is located in a pedestrian area of Solokoetxe, and has been used for concerts, talks, ephemeral exhibitions, and site-specific actions.
Bulegoa z/b is not only a physical space; it is also a context, or a place to set up encounters between different areas of thought and creation. It is a reference for artists and thinkers, who are familiar with the transversal approach we have used for the ten years of our existence and are interested in everything that happens here.
With this open call for residency, we invite artists or researchers from any discipline who wish to use the physical space of the office or the resources we can make available for their work or research.
The residency includes two public activities proposed by the resident, to be included in the Bulegoa z/b programme.
We would like applicants for the residency to consider it an opportunity to try out forms of practical or theoretical knowledge that may bring them out of their comfort zones, implying some sort of displacement.
