About culturia

culturia is a goal oriented artist in residence program and is set as a long term research project on artistic process. We develop a non material collection archiving texts written by artists. The program is set to entice and stimulate the writing practice through workshops, presentations and filmed interviews with invited artists, curators and other art professionals. All the material will be saved to create a knowledge base for researchers and be a starting point for development of future projects like exhibitions, publications and presentations. The concept is to keep the “non-material” which exists during the pursuit of the artists to the final material artwork. Accomplishing this the content cease to exist. culturia definition of non materiality can be understood only in this opposition.
