Residencies

We are a multidisciplinary research center in the performing, visual and design arts.

Through an annual residency program, we offer ears, space and resources to emerging generations of artists, with a focus on queer, racialized and disabled communities, providing a protected space for research and production.

We are committed to build long-term collaborations, involving artist-in-residence in the co-design of the Public Program and BASE’s productions. We seek to spark an open and real dialogue with artists, creatives and designers, exploring ideas and approaches on how to address contemporary issues.

The rules of the game

  1. EXPERIMENTATION LABORATORY

    We give space to the process: a green light to error, a chance to try and test, think and produce, create and share. We establish long-term relationships with artists and work with them to experiment with new ideas, at the intersection of performance art and design, photography and dance, public art and music.

  2. TO CARE IS POLITICAL

    We provide technical support, mentoring and economic recourses by guaranteeing a space for research and production, fostering the connection between the artistic community and the local context, offering a dedicated, protected and comforting work space, and hospitality.

  3. BEING CITY ATELIERS

    Imagining new forms of living is not only the task of architecture: we support emerging artists on the ground and challenge the artistic community to immerse themselves in the reality of cities to break rules and boundaries, reconfigure spaces and human relations, and bring art and public dimensions into dialogue through artistic languages.

  4. AN ENGINE OF CHANGE

    Rethinking the contemporary through artistic languages: our residency program makes bodies, identities, cultures and unforeseen natures visible, fitting into BASE’s broader framework of reflection, which sees us committed to mitigating forms of racialization and cultural colonialism, ableism and gender discrimination.
