Artist in Residence program February 2020 Belgrade

On water, next to land* 

Hostel Arkabarka offers 1 month artist residency on its splav, a floating property that is distinct to the city of Belgrade. Selected applicants will stay with us for 1 month during February 2020. 

Life on an anchored boat is not quite like being grounded on land, nor like sailing through a body of water. It provides a rare temporal space that is sound yet unpredictable. It is stable yet never truly static, as the rhythm of the space is determined by that of Danube.

We would like to use this specificity of our space to encourage critical thinking on the concept of space- in-transition, and to support creative approach on searching possibilities of in-between spaces.
