Fresh AIR - CHECK-IN BUDAPEST 1.
Fresh AIR, the first event of Check-in Budapest taking place on 27 Ocotober 2008 will deal with the topic of residency programs and centers. Artists-in-Residency (AIR) programs aim to encourage international contacts for artists and curators. The main goal of such programs – beside facilitating time for work and inspiration – is to provide the invited residents coming from different angles of the world with the opportunity of international presentation, networking and career building.
The invited particiants of the first Check-in Budapest panel will talk about the different working methods, special goals, operational structures and financial backgrounds of their own, internationally recognised institutions. The aim of this panel is to provide an overview on the different strategies and to offer to the Hungarian audience the possibility of establishing contacts to the presented institutions and their representatives. This event should foster future discussion of initiating a residency center in Budapest.
